1. What made you decide to work with Diane? Was there an obvious advantage or anything specific that made her stand out in some way?

Diane came very highly recommended to me by a close friend whose opinion I really respect. It sounded like the practice was progressive and based on direct work with the body and not about a plethora of prescribing supplements; which is true. I’m not sure I was actively or maybe consciously seeking help at the time but I recall being excited by the first occasion, as I was experiencing acute symptoms of a long-standing issue and needed help. Her practice sounded, and is uniquely comprehensive, and interesting from other alternative practitioners I knew.

2. What was life like before working with Diane?

I was weaker and I got sick a lot!

3. How has working with Diane helped?

Diane has helped me tremendously in a number of ways. I am coming out of my first winter of not being sick all the time, vulnerable to colds and more serious illnesses that I have otherwise suffered through every winter. I know my body is capable of supporting me more than before; I feel stronger and have experienced my body behaving in a new healthy way that I was discouraged to imagine would ever happen. Diane has made me believe that there is support for the body to work differently in a long term way. Despite the fact that I consider myself pretty healthy, there was always a missing piece.

4. Tell us more about the process and how you worked it through.

There is something incredibly powerful about Diane’s diverse medical knowledge and her application of energetic techniques. She works to help you bring into consciousness the emotional conditions that may be setting the scene for what’s happening physically and energetically. Even more interesting is that she goes deeper to the energetic factors that you cannot see and may not be conscious of. You feel like she’s a powerful vehicle for putting your body in connection with something much bigger than you in order to facilitate change, to clear hindrance, and to connect with a support system that is the universe, consciousness, whatever you want to call it. She asks to you to take responsibility to implement change yourself but something is different now so that you aren’t having to do it all alone.

5. What is it about working with Diane that you find most valuable?

The way in which she has an incredible gift to enable and support an energetic shift. I have come to see her, feeling very low and down, and have left her office feeling supported; a feeling that you get to carry and sustain as if you are armed and prepped to deal. She is a great connector, provides interesting mirrors to see what’s going on and there is always something incredibly insightful coming from her readings that is direct and not abstract. She treats the body like a text that is full of information if we can learn to read it.

6. What have you learned about yourself?

That power is an awakening and we need to seek it within ourselves and understand the dynamics and play of consciousness, physiology, ancestory, food, dreams; that although we may be blind, deaf and mute, that underneath the filters there is the possibility that a healed authentic self exists.

7. What have been your biggest insights/light bulb moments from working with Diane?

That our most powerful healing source comes from within us, physical healing included, and that I need guidance!
8. What are you working on now? What is life like now?

Still in the fight to wake up! Life is different every day but hopefully more honest and conscious.

9. What is the single most important benefit that you’ve achieved from working with Diane?

I am healthier and stronger and I am grateful that I found a practitioner to literally make room to move forward if I choose to help myself. Imagine the 1-800-junk of progressive naturopathy! I feel like Diane works on the big stuff in a big way, that she enables real energetic shifts to occur that actually bring change in life and not temporary reprieve from symptoms.

10. What do you think life is going to be like in the future after today?

That depends on my commitment to myself.

11.What would you like to celebrate?
Let’s celebrate the initiative of the conscious community Diane is creating.

Thanks, Diane.
