Diana M Gonzales-Ricard

Diana M Gonzales-Ricard is the owner and clinical director of Mi Alegria Psychotherapy LCSW PLLC, as well as the owner and president of Big D's Big Dog Rehab. Diana was working in trade publishing when she decided to return to school for her Master's degree in Social Work with the intent of destigmatizing mental illness as well as making help more easily accessible. Throughout her career, she has worked in various settings from early childhood intervention to end of life hospice care. Her specific areas of expertise are OCD, trauma and anxiety disorders. In addition, Diana is a certified hypnotherapist and EFT Practitioner. Her love for dogs inspired her to become a certified dog trainer, as well, and when she is not at her psychotherapy practice, she is focused on rehabbing the dogs she rescues from high-kill southern shelters with the hope of placing them in forever homes.
