Diana Calvo (she/her) works with individuals and couples who are wanting to make sense of their life experiences, navigate significant life transitions, and thrive in an increasingly complex world. She is in the final year of her master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. Diana has a special interest in developmental trauma, family estrangement, and relationship challenges. She has niche expertise working with survivors of narcissistic abuse.
When working with individuals, Diana supports adults to reconnect with their inner wisdom and guidance. She believes each client is the ultimate expert on his/her/their own life. Diana encourages a collaborative relationship, open dialogue, and a kind and gentle atmosphere. She is trained in Contemplative Psychotherapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), and Somatic Experiencing (SE). Her therapeutic approach is influenced by her study of Buddhist Psychology.
In couples work, Diana works with couples in real-time to address relationship challenges using the Psychobiological Approach to Couples Therapy (PACT). She supports the couple to understand themselves and each other more deeply. Through guided scenarios, each person learns effective strategies for a more satisfying relationship.
Diana identifies as white, heterosexual, monogamous, and a cisgender woman. She can support interested clients to explore how identity, social location, power, and systems impact their individual experience. Additionally, Diana studies Buddhist teachings and has a regular meditation practice. Her theoretical orientation to understanding client experiences is largely shaped by her study of family systems theory and attachment theory.
