Therapist / Counselor Diane Placide, LPC (VA and DC)
“I am committed to empowering clients to be proactive about their mental health in order to achieve mental wellness. I strongly believe in assisting clients to build upon personal and psycho-social factors to help increase their chances of future success. I highly believe in educating clients throughout their therapeutic journey in order to reduce stigmas and normalize mental health topics.
My therapeutic experiences include trauma-focused therapy, cognitive-behavioral, motivational interviewing, play therapy, group therapy, and family therapy. My therapeutic focus includes working with families, adults, and youth facing identity crises, anxiety, depression, trauma, and other life challenges. My philosophy is focusing on resilience and assets rather than solely focusing on deficits to promote positive self-concepts and growth.
I enjoy helping to increase genuine and authentic self-understanding and awareness for overall positive well-being. To accomplish this, my sessions have a healthy balance of humor and warmth, which is destined, to help brighten a person’s days.
Congratulations on embarking on your journey of mental wellness! I look forward to working with you in reaching great success. ”
