A Little About Me

Hello my name is Rory Valentine Diller. I have a decade of experience working with youth in crisis at community programs and medical settings across the Bay Area including survivors of domestic violence, LGBTQ folx, and youth in psychiatric emergency struggling with suicidal thoughts and self harm. Additionally, I have experience working with male and masculine-identified survivors of sexual trauma, addicts in recovery, and Trauma Survivors. I specialize in Trauma, Somatic, Expressive Arts, Dance Movement, & Equine (Horse) Assisted Therapies for the treatment of PTSD, Complex Trauma, Depression, & Anxiety.

My innovative approach works to heal Trauma by enhancing traditional Talk Therapy with an expanded toolbox of techniques. I offer clients individualized treatment options that may include Somatic (Body-based therapies), Expressive Arts Therapies, Dance Movement Therapy, and Equine Assisted Therapy. My training is rooted in Neuroscience, Psychobiology, and the use of Creativity in psychotherapy. My Holistic approach aims to create new pathways towards healing the Mind, Body, and Soul. I am Person-centered and believe in empowering each person's innate capacity to heal.

I believe in the power of using creativity and self expression in therapy. There is a vast, inner world of symbolic imagery that exists beneath our conscious awareness and it helps to organize our experiences, thoughts, and feelings that are too complex for words. When we access this inner world through imagination and creativity, we can create rich opportunities to understand ourselves and our world in new ways. Expressive Arts Therapies offer fresh opportunities to regulate our emotions, rewire unconscious patterns and core beliefs, and reprocess meanings linked with traumatic memories.
