Language(s) - English
Mindfulness, self-awareness, and a holistic perspective are the framework of Diane Habel’s practice. As a generalist with a focus in Dialectic Behavior Therapy, she wants her clients to feel relaxed and comfortable and to know that the therapy space with her will be open-minded and non-judgmental.
It is rewarding for Ms. Habel to be a part of another person’s journey and witness the “aha” moments and the insights that arise. She views her role as a guide and a teacher at times. “I believe we are all doing the best we can, in this moment, and we all have things we can work to improve. Sometimes we judge our past self by who we are today, and our past self didn’t have the same knowledge and experience that our present self has.”
Outside of her practice, Ms. Habel practices what she teaches! This includes spending as much time as possible outdoors, including walking, hiking, biking, and gravel biking. She is relatively new to Oregon and still acclimating to being active outside in the rain. She enjoys her companion rescue dogs and traveling to visit her four adult children. She also has regular mindfulness practices, including meditation and yoga.
