Diana Y Arreci, MFTC
Marriage and Family Therapy Candidate
My career choice to become a therapist flourished from a desire to support others in their healing journey. I believe meaningful relationships have the power to heal by providing acceptance, support, and connection. However, we are not often taught how to maintain and cultivate healthy relationships. After facing my own relational challenges, I became passionate about finding what works and how to break out of unhelpful patterns. In my therapeutic work, I collaborate with clients in developing effective communication that fosters connection and understanding. I use the Gottman method to provide tools to help build more satisfying relationships and practice from a strength-based approach, as every person is unique and multifaceted.
As a child of immigrants, I am particularly interested in exploring multicultural experiences for first-generation children and families. In addition, I aspire to create higher mental health awareness among Latinos and continue to help destigmatize mental health in marginalized communities. Cultural humility is a core component in my therapeutic process, and I am committed to providing culturally sensitive therapy to clients, which includes affirming therapy for the LGBTQ+ community.
I attended Purdue Northwest University, where I received a Master of Science in Couple and Family Therapy. As a lover of nature and the outdoors, I decided to move to Denver from my hometown of Chicago. I like to cook, hike, and spend quality time with loved ones when I am not at work. I’m currently accepting new clients and can provide services in Spanish. Please contact me if you’re interested in starting therapy or have any questions.
