Life isn’t about finding yourself.
It’s about creating yourself.
Diana Baker Brummer, CSWRI
I work with analysts and artists, stay-at-home moms, and VPs. I work with anyone seeking to tap into the deep well of their own creative potential. Together, we work to identify and heal the old wounds that keep us stuck, and joyfully embrace a life of productivity and peace.
I believe in showing up and being real. Real about who we are, where we’ve been, and where we want to go. I enter each helping relationship with one primary commitment in mind: to help you create the life you desire. To help you define what success means to you and then, together, formulate a plan that will allow you to achieve that success. In short, I believe in the relentless pursuit of your dreams.
Diana Baker, CSW-RI. I have a private psychotherapy practice in Jacksonville, Florida, and online via a HIPPA compliant video chat platform (like Skype) with between-session text message support. With graduate and undergraduate degrees from Florida State University, I have twenty years’ experience in the fields of mental and behavioral health.
In addition to my blog, I’m an avid social science writer and contributor. I serve as a writing coach, mentoring professionals, students, and others who wish to bring their creative projects to life. A practitioner and facilitator of journal therapy, I often rely on writing as a means to process emotions and help my clients move through creative blocks.
I love getting people thinking about the ways they’ve been thinking. I give talks, teach psychoeducational groups, and lead discussions on the topics of mental and emotional health, relationships, parenting, productivity, and creativity. I value good coffee and deep conversations about the things that set our souls on fire.
I help smart, creative people move bravely
into the light of their divine gifts.
For many of our children who deal with mental health issues, a break from school might mean more than just a break from their routine; it might also mean a break from their medications. While there may not be a need for intense focus outside of the classroom, reducing or discontinuing ADHD medication over the summer can lead to hyperactivitity, irritability, and behavioral issues. For others, children have been known to experience depression as a result of social isolation during the summer while being away from their peers.read more
When we think of the process of letting go, we tend to imagine a slow goodbye. A relationship that wanes before it ends, a long illness resulting in someone’s passing, a lifelong career transitioning into retirement.
In all these scenarios, we have the luxury of time. Time to prepare, time to anticipate, time to say the things we need to say, and time to tie our loose ends neatly into a bow.read more
