Diana M Loaiza Tangarife, MA LMFT, RPT

Plymouth Office
 



Approach: I utilize therapeutic tools from different theories always considering that all clients are human beings who deserve a unique approach to their struggles. In my work with clients, I use an approach that includes identifying and increasing strengths, support network, and coping skills.When working with children and adolescents, as a Registered Play Therapist, I use play as a way for them to communicate and heal while in therapy. I also use sandtray therapy with adolescents, adults and families as another form of expression through metaphors and symbols.

Interests: I have a special interest in working with young children and their parents, as well as in working with clients of all ages affected by trauma. Being bilingual in Spanish-English allows me to provide culturally competent therapy to Latino families. I am also interested in working with families and couples to develop healthier relationships.

Favorite DBT Skill: Accumulating Positive Experiences is one of my favorite DBT skills. When things are not going well in our lives, I find it very useful to be mindful of the choices that we make in order to foster positive experiences that could counteract the unpleasant emotions that our struggles are causing.
