ABOUT DIANA GARBER

Diana-Garber-Therapist

I am a licensed clinical social worker specialized in providing psychotherapy to adults who are dealing with depression, anxiety, relationship problems, chronic illness and low self-esteem.

I graduated from Northwestern University with a degree in Journalism and Psychology and from Brooklyn Law School before completing a Masters in Social Work at UCLA. Prior to completing my MSW, I was an Assistant District Attorney in Brooklyn, New York prosecuting misdemeanor and felony cases from arraignment to trial.

I have worked with children, adolescents and adults in different community mental health settings and provided individual, couple, group and family therapy. I also worked at La Ventana Eating Disorder Treatment Center where I provided therapy to adolescents and adults who suffered from anorexia, bulimia, binge eating, over-eating, body dysmorphic disorder and orthorexia.

In addition to private practice, I also currently run the mental health program for Cystic Fibrosis patients at the University of California, San Francisco. I presented at the annual Cystic Fibrosis Conference in 2017 and 2019 on my work with individuals living with chronic illness.

I use attachment, relational and contemporary psychoanalytic approaches in our work together.  I am also trained in CBT and DBT. I received training at the Institute for Contemporary Psychoanalysis in Los Angeles. I am also currently a member of the Northern California Society for Psychoanalytic Psychology.  I am licensed in California (LCSW76383).
