Welcome to Bethesda Mental Health!
We believe in a holistic approach to mental health to include addressing your emotional, mental, physical and spiritual health needs. Your safety is a primary concern; we provide care that is both Compassionate and Evidence Based to promote the best outcomes for you. Our psychiatric care focuses on providing you with individualized treatment plans that meet your specific needs, allowing you to discuss your concerns and work through past traumas in a safe, caring and non-judgmental environment.
Individualized treatment may require prescribing psychiatric medications as indicated in a safe manner, and incorporating Solution Focused and or Supportive Psychotherapy as needed.
The treatment goal is life recovery. We will help you and your loved ones learn the needed coping skills to handle daily stressors effectively. We strive to help alleviate our clients’ past pain and traumas so they can regain confidence, and live more productive and joyful lives.

She moved into private practice with Bethesda Mental Health in West Arlington in 2017. The practice has since relocated to the Farmers Branch area in Dallas County.
Mental illness affects almost every family now in one way or another. Dianne is passionate about helping her clients understand whatever psychosocial stressors or familial predispositions they may have that might put them at risk for psychiatric disorders.
Dianne’s goal in founding Bethesda Mental Health was to provide an environment in which people could get Holistic mental health care. This is care that is conducive to not just treating the client’s presenting symptoms or disorders, but to addressing the needs of the whole person including their emotional, mental, physical, and spiritual health needs.
