Diana Loaiza Tangarife, MA, LMFT, RFP
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.
Quote: “It is meaningful to me to work with young children and their parents, and those of all ages affected by trauma, in addition me to provide culturally competent therapy to Latino families, as I am bilingual in Spanish and English.”
