Clinical Experience


In 2004 Diana's year-long practicum from NSU gave her the opportunity to serve at Cross Creek School which is a Cognitive Behavioral Therapeutic K-12 Broward County Public School where students had to be under psychiatric care to attend.

In this experience, she was the only intern with 8 licensed professionals, a psychiatrist, and 2 psychiatric nurses.

This is where she began to see that many students who were labeled and disabled needed a different approach than just managing symptoms or focusing on meds and behavior.

She began to research alternative approaches to mental health at this time.
