Diana Houghton, PhD(C), MA, NLC. Diana earned her M.A. in Somatic Counseling with an emphasis in Body Psychotherapy from Naropa University and is currently working towards her LPC. She began her journey as a therapist at the Veteran’s Administration Medical Center in Cheyenne, WY interning at the Post Combat Trauma group of the Mental Health Department. She is in the dissertation phase of her Ph.D. program at Grand Canyon University with hopes to achieve her doctorate in General Psychology with an emphasis on integrating Learning, Technology, and Psychology in late 2022.Diana uses an eclectic approach that is personalized to each client and grounded in a somatic perspective. Human beings encounter the world through our senses (body). Our nervous system is shaped by our lived experiences. To be more accurate we are not a mind or a body but a totality known as the mindbody. Perception begins with the mindbody, which is inherently linked to others and the environment. That is the basis of relationship and the place where harm happened, and integration can occur. She specializes in trauma response and integration while also holding space for a variety of populations and needs.
