I earned my Master’s degree from Hodges University, Naples, FL, in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. Have extensive experience in case management working with individuals and families, where I specialized with relationship issues, depression, grief, various behavioral issues, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), and provided community services assistance and counseling for individuals and families involving domestic violence situations.
I began my Private Practice in 2014. Currently, I am facilitating the Divorced and Separated ministry at St Agnes Catholic Church in Florida.
My counseling philosophy encompasses a concentration on addressing clients’ needs by assisting them through their journey in life using empowerment and solution focused approaches.
My technique as a counselor is individualized, integrative, and compassionate. I strive to create a deeply caring, nonjudgmental atmosphere where a person can express himself or herself and feel supported. I believe that each person has a desire to lead a life of authenticity and meaning. I see each person as unique with individual goals based on their life style and desires.
Counseling is a collaborative effort and your confidentiality is extremely important to me.
Sunshine State Counseling Center has two therapist’s/co-owners: Diana Salazar, LCSW, RPT (who is fluent in both English and Spanish) and Megan Goddard, LCSW, RPT. At our center we empower individuals, children and families to build and develop their strengths by providing therapeutic services based on a compassionate, ethical and professional approach.
After practicing psychotherapy in private practice for almost 20 years, I began searching for another modality that would enable me to help my clients more directly and in a shorter time frame than is possible with most traditional psychotherapeutic modalities.
I learned that hypnotherapy is widely used and is highly effective for almost any problem that you are finding it hard to handle on your own. Do you need motivation to stop smoking or to lose weight? Do you suffer from fears, phobias or anxieties? Do you wish you could focus or concentrate better? How about being a more confident public speaker? Would you like to be more successful in a sport or in your job? Are you facing an upcoming surgery or dental work? Do you suffer from headaches or chronic pain? These issues, and many more, have been proven to be significantly helped by hypnosis.
And because hypnosis is a natural state of deep relaxation accompanied by heightened awareness, you are safely able to open your mind to beneficial suggestions that can result in an ability to manage pain or enact new, healthier behaviors. For those clients who may be open to it, I like to combine traditional psychotherapeutic modalities with hypnotherapy.
