Dianna Zaffina, LMFT

Licensed Psychotherapist in Trumbull, Connecticut

Hello, I am Dianna Zaffina, a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, and certified Energy Medicine Practitioner, with a passion to assist you in healing yourself and your relationships.

I have been a holistic Psychotherapist for over 25 years with the intuitive ability to see people’s strengths and challenges.

I believe in treating the whole person is necessary, not just certain parts. We are multifaceted beings who require love and attunement to all areas of who we are mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual for lasting change. Many of us long for a deep sense of connection with others and fear losing ourselves in the process. Since research shows deeper degrees of Empathy is taught especially through modeling, I hold a safe space of respect and compassion for you and the work we do.

I have always been a compassionate natural born listener who believes you’ll find your abilities to hold space for your needs and the needs of others will increase as we do this work.

How I Can Help You

It's my goal to create a comfortable, safe environment where we'll work together to achieve your goals.

I am a committed lifelong learner who thrives to expand my own growth in all possible areas. I am continually training in new things like Heart Math Clinical Certification for Stress, Anxiety, and Emotional Regulation and also training in Positive Psychology. It is because of this continued expansion of myself that I have great optimism for my clients. With my clients, we set realistic goals attained through manageable strategies.

We must learn to be kind to ourselves and be our own best friend, only then are we a better friend to our fellow humans and loved ones. Only then we Flourish.
In life, I believe we have to keep reaching for that next best feeling to inch our way steadily along the continuum of emotions. As we face difficult life circumstances however sometimes we need time and assistance unpacking our blocks to be able to make forward progress. Emotional intelligence comes when we become more cognizant of our blind spots. I firmly believe that I couldn’t help my clients if I hadn’t sat my own share in the client’s chair and journeyed within to know what I bring into the room as a clinician.
