Therapist in Columbia, Maryland Diana Gruhl, LCSW-C

Diana Gruhl, LCSW-C

Do you want emotional support and help navigating life’s challenges? Do you want help overcoming limiting beliefs, thoughts, and behaviors that keep you stuck in the past, so you can feel better and move toward your goals?

Using a caring, collaborative approach and years of experience, I work with adults and seniors to address mental health challenges and increase life satisfaction. I help clients explore their feelings, uncover and transform limiting thoughts, beliefs, and behaviors, navigate life challenges, rediscover inner  strengths and wisdom, develop effective coping skills and strategies, and move toward their goals. I also help clients cope with relationship issues, health conditions, depression, anxiety, grief, meaning and purpose inquiries, and self-esteem/confidence issues. In addition, I provide seniors support with issues of aging, caregiver issues, long-term planning, and assistance with resources.

As a licensed therapist, I focus on the unique needs of each client and use effective treatment methods as indicated, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction, Emotional Freedom Technique, Motivational Interviewing, Psychodynamic methods, Compassionate Communication, Strengths-Based, and Solution-Focused Therapies. I also use expressive arts and reminiscence therapies when appropriate.

I have been providing social work assessments, counseling, and support services for adults and seniors since 2008. I obtained my MSW degree with honors from California State University- Long Beach in 2010, and then worked as an Associate Clinical Social Worker with clients, families/caregivers, and care teams in settings including a psychiatric clinic and health care/dialysis clinics. I obtained my LCSW in California in 2019 and my LCSW-C in Maryland in 2020 while working in health clinics. Since then, I have been providing licensed therapeutic counseling to adults and seniors in-person and via telehealth.

Outside of work, I enjoy walking in nature with friends, practicing yoga, meditation, dancing, cooking, sharing healthy meals and conversations with loved ones, creating art, and enjoying time in community.

I look forward to supporting and empowering you on your journey!
