Diane louise, MA-MFT, Marriage, Family, Therapist Intern

Diane.jpg


Life transitions, difficulties in relationships, grief and loss…these are some of the reasons people seek counseling. My goal as a therapist is to provide a safe, caring environment where people can work through problems, discover their strengths, and find hope for healing and change. It takes courage to reach out and seek support when you realize that what you’re doing on your own isn’t working. As a marriage and family therapist, I work with individuals, couples, and families, using a “systems” perspective. We are all affected and influenced by our family of origin, as well as by other past relationships and experiences. In counseling, we explore patterns of behavior and attachment needs in order to gain insight, promote growth, and make necessary changes.

My hope is that you would start your journey to healing.

| Pre-marital | Marital | Crisis | Individual | adult |

Terry and Carol Ranstad graduated from University of Oregon, and together they counsel couples through life’s journey from premarital to crisis counseling. Unique to their services, Terry and Carol use an online assessment tool called "Prepare/Enrich" that enables couples identify their strengths to improve their marriages.  While on-going counseling can be provided, many couples request the assessment for a "tune-up," requiring only one session with Terry and Carol to help the couple interpret the assessment information.  Carol also meets with people one-on-one to address individual issues that may or may not relate to marriage.

Prior to working with WaterCup, Carol was an educator for almost 30 years and primarily worked with at-risk children.  As the Director of Academics and founding member of New Leaf Academy, she provided guidance in integrating educational approaches with therapeutic practices.  Terry recently retired from a 21 year management position for a local business in Bend, and has loyally served the church as an Elder for most of his adult life.

 Terry and Carol have been married for 45 years.  They enjoy all that Central Oregon has to offer, including skiing Mr. Bachelor, fishing the rivers, and hiking the many trails that this areas offers.  When not in the outdoors, they spend time with their three grown children and seven grandchildren, and continue to minister in their church.
