"This training helped me frame therapeutic work  within the individualand within large systems. It showed me how to heal and reformcorrections at whatever level—within ourselves, families, and workplaces—so we can be our best, solo or together."

–A. Weatherley
Boulder, CO

"Thank you for a wonderful training. I learned so much and am already digesting and integrating the information you shared with us. As I had mentioned to you, I did my graduate research on Attachment and adult mother/daughter relationship (levels of self-esteem and depression) many years ago at NYU. Now after working as a clinician for over a decade and having attended the 3 days, it all makes so much more sense. I so appreciate both the theory and the practice. You demonstrated and taught us so much that will help facilitate repair and re-orientation. I highly respect your work. It obviously reflects years of clinical foundation, experience and self-healing. The Attachment wounds/repair information is truly the foundation and as you said the pay dirt of our work. Having the opportunity to watch you in the demonstrations accompanied by the biofeedback was truly astonishing."

–P. Atkinson, LCSW-R,

"Diane's work has enabled us to work with the tender Attachment piece, with skill, kindness, and understanding. When clients experience it, they often say something like, "This is the work I have been waiting for. No one has held it with me in quite this way." Diane has given us a beautiful way to meet it and to begin healing the deep and early patterns of our clients and of ourselves. Thank you."
