Diane Nickless is a Social Worker based in the USA. My areas of speciality include Aging Concerns. This profile is currently unclaimed; please validate the details are current when communicating with the mental health professional.
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with a bachelor’s degree in Clinical and Counseling Psychology from Saint Xavier University and a Master of Social Work degree from Governors State University. I have extensive experience in the healthcare field. My areas of interest include depression, anxiety, loss/bereavement, aging issues, chronic health issues, stress management and life transitions. Using cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) along with the theoretical foundation of acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) I bring a strengths-based approach to the therapeutic relationship. In a partnership grounded in support and collaboration, I engage the client in the process of uncovering small insights now which will lead to broad positive changes for a more fulfilling life experience in the future. We are all resilient beings with the power to adapt to life challenges through self-reflection at any age. We are capable of redefining the way we think and react to the world around us. I am humbled by the trust placed in me by clients as they allow me to join them on their journey of self-discovery through the difficulties that life presents.
