Diana Davis uses empathic understanding to connect with clients and to create a space where they can truly be themselves. Diana’s counseling philosophy is that every client is unique and already possesses an inner wisdom, which outside influences have taught them to doubt or to ignore. With deep compassion, Diana helps clients learn to trust their inner voice again and reconnect with their authentic self.
Prior to entering the mental health field, Diana worked as a lawyer and then as a full-time caretaker for her young children. It was her own experience in counseling which helped her discover her true calling. She obtained a Master of Science in Clinical Mental Health Counseling with a specialization in Marriage and Family Therapy from Jacksonville University. While pursuing her degree, she also completed a 1,000 hour clinical internship at JU’s Student Counseling Center. There she gained valuable experience working with young adults and adults on a variety of presenting concerns including depression and anxiety, relationship issues, identity formation, stress and sleep issues, addiction, ADHD, bipolar disorder, suicidality, self-confidence and self-concept, adjustment disorder, and much more.
Diana specializes in assisting individuals and couples with navigating life transitions, such as moving from adolescence into adulthood, adjusting to married life or parenthood, trauma, crisis of identity or purpose, divorce, loss, career change, and other twists and turns on the road of life. These are events which may be painful, but can offer unlimited potential for growth and self-discovery. Diana helps clients seize these opportunities and use them to create lasting change.
In her free time, Diana enjoys walking her dogs, being with her family, reading, daydreaming, watching Netflix, and doing Zumba.
