About Diavonti

We Are Living In Challenging Times

You may feel overwhelmed with your feelings of fear, loneliness, depression, anxiety and more.

Maybe the trauma of your past continues to resurface, making it hard to move forward in your relationships, your work, or toward your goals.

People are not built to solve everything by themselves. Working with an experienced, compassionate, and resourceful therapist can help lighten your load and expand new horizons that make you feel more alive. Healing is possible.


Everyone Has the Ability to Heal & to Thrive

My practice reflects the thinking that, “When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.“- Dr Wayne Dyer.

Together, we can help you find inner strength, resilience, and new perspectives – even when living in dire circumstances.

My direct and compassionate style helps clients feel comfortable and understood.


I Am A Therapist But I Am Also A Person

I understand heartache, pain and disappointment. I also understand overcoming, learning to love yourself, and growth!

It takes honesty to admit there is a problem and courage to address it. It also takes discipline and strength to do the work to resolve the problem.

As a therapist, I appreciate the uniqueness of each client, and my goal is to create a safe space where clients feel heard and understood.

You can expect our work to be collaborative and compassionate while exploring new strategies and techniques to help you reach your goals and live a happier, healthier and more fulfilling life.

My education and roots

I was born and spent the first part of my life in Southern California before moving to and falling in love with Northern California in elementary school.

I’ve always found so much joy in learning and have been very fortunate to have wonderful educational experiences throughout my life. I spent my undergraduate years at UC Santa Barbara earning a bachelor’s degree in Psychology and soaking up one of the most gorgeous parts of California.

After graduation, I returned to Northern California and spent a few years gaining work experience and traveling before attending graduate school. I earned a Master’s of Science in Psychology with an emphasis in Marriage and Family Therapy through Chico State, and graduated in 2020.

It has been an honor and dream come true to work in the Chico community since then and support individuals and families navigate the highs and lows of the last few years.

About Me

I spend my free time reconnecting with what brings me peace and joy. My biggest priority is spending time with family, my dogs, and friends. I love attending live music and comedy shows, getting outdoors, practicing yoga, attending community events, and giving myself space to rest. I’m always pursuing continued growth and love learning through books, podcasts, and trainings, traveling, and trying new experiences.

While I see many types of clients, below are a few areas I specialize in:

  • Life Transitions
  • Depression and Anxiety
  • Trauma
  • Teens & Young Adults
  • Couples & Families
  • Developing a Growth Mindset

There Is Hope

Whatever you are going through, I am confident that we can work together, to get things back on track. Don’t spend another day feeling stuck and overwhelmed.
