Diane Schulz on Psychology Today

I recognize the importance of creating safe spaces and do so with an energy of warmth, validation and humor. I support clients from a healing-centered approach to identify goals, manage stress and process traumatic experiences through enhancing communication, somatic (body-focused) techniques, mindfulness and other creative practices for self-reflection and self-regulation. I recognize that processing grief or pain are important aspects of growth and that we can be more responsive and vulnerable without collapsing. As a collaborator on your healing journey I approach our work together with genuine curiosity and open-mindedness.

I have experience working with children, young people, adults and families who are healing from childhood/developmental trauma, intergenerational trauma, and historical trauma. I am also adoption competent and trained in supporting families who are navigating foster care, adoption journeys, family crises, physical/sexual abuse and neglect. I celebrate consent, pleasure, healthy forms of aggression, responsive parenting, a connection to nature, practicing self-compassion, being present and adaptive with boundaries. I believe that healthy relationships, and social support systems are essential to wellness. I seek to be inclusive, LGBTQIA+ affirming and sex/body-positive. I emphasize the importance of community and reciprocal relationships and use a therapeutic framework to assist folks in understanding how their daily lives are impacted by sociocultural systems.

Through an eclectic approach, I integrate a variety of methods including: strength-based, Attachment Theory/Internal Working Models of Attachment, Relational, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Lifespan sexual health, Narrative Therapy, Holistic Wellness and Trauma-Informed Mindfulness, Systems, somatic process, Polyvagal Theory and the Neurosequential Model of Therapeutics (NMT). I have background in education, facilitation, group work, sexual assault advocacy and community organizing where I have honed my skills and can incorporate my experiences during
Session.
