What Our Clients are Saying...

"I love the results I’m seeing, feeling, and living. The most valuable takeaways have been self-worth & self-compassion, creating healthy boundaries, the ability to acknowledge unhealthy reactions and behaviors, and the art of truly healing.

 

I am proud that I have been able to address painful memories and actually FEEL the feelings I should have felt so long ago. I’m coming to a true place of freedom and am now able to process trauma, loss, and hurt from a healthy perspective."

I would absolutely recommend Diane as a counselor. I recommend her to everyone and that’s why so many of my friends now go to her as well! She is helping each of us process our hurts. Her professionalism, vulnerability, compassion, and effective and tangible tools have the ability to be useful to a large variety of people."

"I first sought out counseling services with SWFL Counseling in an effort to deal with a bout of serious emotional turmoil that I encountered at the end of a long term relationship. I wanted to get help with recovering from this huge life changing event so that I could move on with my life. And as it turned out, counseling was just what I needed. With the help of my therapist (Bethaney), I was able to access the tools that I needed to heal and move on more quickly than I might have been able to on my own. And as time went on, I began to wonder why I hadn't ever considered therapy before - prior to my bout of emotional turmoil. My emotional stability, confidence, and understanding of myself has increased tremendously through regular therapy, and it's something that I wouldn't soon consider giving up. In my experience, when used properly, therapy can be a excellent tool in getting the most out of life and in cultivating a healthy relationship with yourself. I always attend my sessions with curiosity, an open mind, and a desire to grow. And it works. I wouldn't be who I am today were it not for the exceptional professionals at SWFL Counseling."

"Twice in my life I have required the assistance of counseling. The first time, for my irrational responses to rational situations; most recently, the exact opposite [rational responses to irrational situations]. In both cases, a qualified, compassionate therapist has helped me declutter my mind, focus on my goals, and pursue what is most important and beneficial for me.

Therapy - cheaper, more compassionate, and better results than going to an attorney!"

"I moved back to Florida from Georgia about 3 1/2 years ago. I was seeing a therapist in Georgia who I thought was really good, so was skeptical of seeing someone else in Florida. Being someone who suffers from depression, I came to a point where I needed to resume seeing someone because my days were getting back to being more bad than good.   I googled therapists by my job and Bethaney was actually located in the same plaza as me so I decided to give it a go... It was the best decision I could of made!  Bethaney has helped me get through many obstacles in life - ones I thought my past therapist helped me through, but actually didn't.  She is very honest, but also kind.  She listens but also tells you her observations and isn't like my last therapist that sat there taking notes and asking "how did I feel about that".  She gives practical ways to get through situations and teaches you to deal with situations.  She helps you really talk out the things you are going through to help you come to the real issue.  I have referred many people to Bethaney and personally know of at least 5 that's have seen her for their issues and have also loved her.  I highly recommend Bethaney to anyone looking to honestly work on themselves.  I have moved multiple states away and continue to see Bethaney through Skype because I refuse to see anyone else!"

"For years I struggled with self doubt, self harm, fear and regrets- all of which seemed to control my life no matter how much I tried to change things on my own. Finally, I made the decision to take the plunge and seek out counseling to help myself. I chose to forget about all the "what ifs" and decided I needed to care about myself and make myself a happier and healthier adult if I was going to become successful in the world. I have loved working with Bethaney for the past 2 yrs to process through former traumas and have finally felt myself healing from my past. I have seen myself grow in so many different areas and have been grateful for the continued opportunity to work with Bethaney. If you're looking for someone who is going to be real with you and call you out when you need it most give Bethaney or any of the counselors at SWFL Counseling a call! "

"When I began counseling with Diane, I was overreacting to situations and knew that was an indicator of some emotional unhealth. Diane listened to my concerns and asked me some very difficult questions that led me to examine my current state and come to realizations.

Now, I am an example of how to handle conflict in a healthy manner. My outlook on life and ability to have compassion for others is noticeable to those close to me. I’m proud that I attended my daughter's wedding and focused only on her wonderful day instead of my former husband.

I would recommend Diane to anyone for counseling.  She listened to me and learned how I like to interact. She is very intuitive as to when to push me and when to back off."
