Diane R Gehart, PhD

Dr. Diane Gehart

I've spent most of my career trying to figure out how to do therapy well, going to countless workshops to learn numerous theoretical models.

In addition to working with nearly 250,000 clients as a therapist or supervisor, I put my many years of professional training into over 12 books and am the only person to write leading textbooks in both counseling and family therapy theories.

However, after nearly 30 years as an active member of the established academic community, I have come to the conclusion that the field of mental health needs to find a better way to train its professionals--both those entering the field and those in it for decades. 

Rather than spend the rest of my career fighting a deeply entrenched educational system, I have decided to simply offer a saner approach to becoming a highly effective mental health professional for those who are interested. 

You are welcome to join me if you too believe there has to be an easier way to do this work well.

Finally, I am committed to ensuring that all interested professionals have access to cutting edge training and knolwedge, and so I regularly offer FREE CEs through my mailing list and website.
