Therapists in Fuquay-Varina, NC N. Main St. Office

  Diane M. McKnight, MA, MSW, LMSW, LCSW, ATR

I am pleased to provide therapeutic services in safe, open, non judgmental environment where you can be comfortable in expressing your concerns, your issues and your emotions. I am able to help you with many issues. This includes depression, ansiety, divorce, low self esteem, trauma/Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), grief and loss, relationship issues, major life transitions (such as job loss, aging, major medical/physical changes), spirituality, LGBTQ issues, and many others.

I provide traditional talk therapy and can also provide non-traditional therapies such as art therapy and sandplay therapy for individuals, families, couples, children and groups.
Non-traditional therapies may provide opportunities for my clients to explore thoughts and feelings in ways that are sometimes less threatening then a direct discussion and can also be helpful in communicating thoughts and emotions that are difficult to describe with words. I also incorporate , mindfulness techniques, journaling/creative writing, cognitive behavioral therapy and other eclectic therapeutic approaches and techniques as they are needed. Because there are no “cookie cutter” therapeutic approaches that work for everyone, I tailor my therapeutic plan of care to individual needs, preferences and comfort levels.

I will help empower you to work through your difficult times. You are the expert of your own life experiences and you will be the one that truly directs your path to recovery. I will be happy to partner with you on this journey. I will use my extensive education and my therapeutic experience, along with my professional and personal insights gained from my own struggles in my life to help guide you in resolving issues, reducing symptoms and achieving your personal goals.

Learning about yourself allows you to get in touch with your underlying feelings that will ultimately lead you to an enhanced understanding of what will allow you to be happier in your life. I look forward to assisting you in centering and holistically positioning yourself comfortably in your personal and professional areas.

Call today and schedule your appointment. Let’s start right away with your journey toward healing!

Life can be hectic at times and while trying to manage the complexities of life, it maybe difficult for someone to face these challenges on their own.

Counseling is a process of self discovery, where one is able to identify and build on their strengths, while learning strategies to make life more manageable and be able to cope with life’s difficulties.

Do you feel like a shell of your former self? Maybe you’re struggling to find the real you or just feel “stuck.” If day-to-day tasks are becoming more and more difficult or you find yourself doing some unhealthy things to try to cope with the stress in your life, I’m here to help!

I am a down-to-earth Licensed Clinical Social Worker whose approach has been described as collaborative and practical. You can rest assured that you will be in a safe place to share your worries, struggles and seemingly unsolvable issues. I will always honor your strengths, experiences and overall perspective.

So many of us struggle with an issue for years, hesitant to reach out. We all have our own rate of progress though, and I believe sustainable change will only happen when we are truly ready.

Now is the time to take the next step and schedule your first appointment so that we can get started! Together we’ll find what will work best for you in your life with your specific dilemma, so that you can begin to feel relief and clarity.

I am looking forward to working with you!
