Diana has a gift with children that I have truly never seen or experienced before. As a mom, I knew my son, Jack, needed support from a therapist. I wasn't sure what to expect, but after initially meeting with Diana I felt instantly reassured knowing she had his best interest in mind. Diana is patient, a wonderful listener, problem solver, and has such a genuine spirit. We formed a trusting and respectful bond with Diana that we will absolutely never forget. Jack has since graduated from therapy and we are thrilled in the success we have seen in his behavior and his ability to have healthy relationships with others. We are forever grateful that we met Diana and that she became such a large part of our life when we needed help the most.
My daughter is constantly looking forward to her appointments with Diana at Roots! I highly recommend Diana to anyone who may need pediatric mental health services. It was a relief that during the pandemic, Diana continued to be available for in-person visits for my daughter. This provided a sense of consistency and structure that was needed during those uncertain and difficult times.
Our daughter started seeing Diana at just 2 years old, and at that time, she had such difficulty talking, playing, and interacting with others. She knew how to communicate, but she just wasn’t comfortable doing so. What initially drew us to Diana was how she took the time to listen to any and all concerns we had regarding our daughter’s emotional and mental health and included our daughter in the conversations regarding her own care. Diana worked to connect us to other therapies that our daughter would benefit from, supported us in advocating for our daughter within the school setting, and helped us learn about our daughter’s diagnoses and ways that we could best support her and help her grow! It’s exciting to see the progress that our daughter has made over the years with her social skills, self-regulation, emotional health, and self-esteem. Today, she’s in 2nd grade, and her teachers have noted how social she is with the other students! She’s always eager to speak up in class, to have discussions with others, and to make new friends! We are extremely pleased with Diana’s personal and individualized approach to our daughter's mental health care. It's comforting to know that she takes the time to get to know our daughter on a personal level, and that she's not just a patient number.
