Diane Younkins provides support for adults who feel stuck or are in transition and want to develop in wisdom and maturity, love and compassion. Using mindfulness insight and other techniques, she encourages authentic living with awareness, gentleness, humor, creativity and courage.

Diane works with adults living with physical, emotional or spiritual suffering. She specializes in attending to adults with anxiety, low self-esteem, codependency, recovery, coping with major changes, loss/grief or depression. In addition, she work with individuals around creativity and vocational challenges. Services also include working with couples seeking to strengthen their relationships and families seeking clarity about dealing with challenges, particularly around care issues of a loved one.

Diane views caregivers as someone who provides care (often physical or emotional) to someone with physical illness, mental illness or addiction.

Younkins brings over 30 years of working with adults and elders in a variety of settings. As a trained pastoral counselor, she encourages clients to bring the strength of their faith and belief systems into the mix as part of their healing work.

Diane also provides spiritual direction services to companion clergy and lay persons wanting to deepen their relationship with the Divine in a changing world.
