I am a psychotherapist in that I am specifically trained to listen to what you say and what you do not say. I see myself as a mirror sitting in front of you so that you can hear yourself and see yourself objectively. I "play your words" and body language back to you so that you can make decisions and make up your own mind about purposeful direction.

We cannot change your past, yet, working together, we can change the effects of your past on your todays and tomorrows. I believe that a deeper understanding of where you came from will open the path and facilitate the journey to where you would like to be, emotionally, spiritually and physically. I work with clients to not only teach tools for daily living, but to uncover the roots of difficult issues and how to heal and grow past your woundings. Let the journey begin!

I believe that empathy is the cornerstone of all healing. By being empathetic, I can become more tuned into how to best help you discover what is inhibiting you from moving forward and living life to the full. Sometimes it is a situation or a malady that is creating your roadblock, by partnering up with someone from the outside looking in – even the strongest of "disorders" can be overcome. I believe in identifying, not denying, in order to take steps forward. At its worst, moving forward without shame is freedom and I am about helping people move forward.

Psychotherapy is a process of change that occurs within the context of a supportive, validating, nurturing, and exploratory relationship. Changes that can take place within psychotherapy include resolution of emotional and interpersonal conflicts, increased quality of life, strengthened competencies, and enhanced satisfaction, contentment, and joy in life and in relationships. My approach to the process is sensitive, compassionate, exploratory, warm, insight-oriented, and engaging.

Diane Calder, Registered State of Oregon

Clinical Mental Health Counselor, MA

In 97045 - Nearby to Salem.

The primary purpose of psychotherapy, as I see it, is to help the client gain insight that will motivate him or her to better their lives. Even if the insight is recognizing the difference between what one can and cannot control, a client learns to focus his or her attention to what can be changed, while learning ways to accept or manage those aspects of life that are out of our control. Furthermore, the goal of psychotherapy is to not make the client into a miniature version of the counselor but to help the client discover whom he or she wants to be in order to lives a fulfilling and rewarding life.

East Lancaster, Faye Wright, Grant, Highland, Lansing, Northgate, Sunnyslope, Morningside

Salem is the capital city of Oregon and is located in the Willamette Valley sitting along the Willamette River.  The Willamette Valley region has been inhabited by people for the last 5,000 years.  The first Europeans settled the area in the early 1800s trapping for furs and trading out of Astoria, Oregon.  The first permanent settlement in Salem was the Jason Lee Mission founded in the Northern part of Salem that is called Wheatland.  In 1844 the mission was dissolved and the town was begun.  In 1851 the capital was moved from Oregon City to Salem.  There have been three capitol buildings in Salem starting with a statehouse that burned down in 1855.  The second capitol was completed in 1876 and was designed to be similar to the U.S. Capitol building.  Amazingly the second capital was also destroyed by fire in 1935.  The third capitol building is still standing today.  Choosing to work with a counselor in Salem is a great beginning step to overcoming the obstacles that are holding you back from life. 

One interesting fact about Salem is that it lies on the 45th parallel which is halfway between the North Pole and the Equator.  The 45th parallel actually runs through the city limits.  Salem has a fairly low elevation ranging from 100 to 800 feet through the metropolitan area.  Salem does have an area that is somewhat hilly in an area known as the Salem hills where elevations are over 1000 feet.  Although Salem itself has a low elevation, the Cascade Mountain range can be seen from the city as can Mount Hood, Mount Jefferson, and the coastal mountain range can be seen from the city as well.  The Christian counselor in Salem you choose to work with will be your ally in finding peace and joy for your life.  Like much of western Oregon, Salem has a marine west coast climate with over 40 inches of rain per year.  Although there is a short dry season from mid June through mid September rain falls throughout most of the year.  This rainfall gives Salem a green look throughout the year and a good growing season for many types of vegetation and shrubbery.

Salem is a city that is located in multiple counties- Marion County and Polk County in Oregon. It has a land area of 48.56 square miles and a water area of 0.55 square miles.  The population of Salem is 164,549 people with 57,729 households and a median annual income of $47,191. .
