Diana Bigham, LMFT-S, RPT-S
Diana has worked with individuals and families since 2007. Early in her career, she specialized in treating trauma and abuse and worked with high profile cases. Her work with at-risk youth and victims of crime inspired her to later focus much of her work on mental health prevention and finding ways to educate individuals and families with practical application, firmly believing the old saying “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.”
When working with individuals and families, Diana tries to educate her clients on the connection between mental health and managing a person’s thought life and personal relationships through appropriate boundaries and communication skills.

In 2019, she began studying Kingdom entrepreneurship and later became a 100X Certified Coach while also co-directing a team of prayer ministers whose primary responsibility was to pray for heart healing for entrepreneurs.
