Diane Dean, RN, LPC, CEG


Diane is a registered nurse, licensed professional counselor, and coach trained at Duquesne University, IUP, and Coach U. Her life's work has been supporting others' growth and healing through medical and psychiatric nursing, counseling, coaching, and nursing education.

She's worked as a nurse in several psychiatric and primary care practices, taught at various colleges and universities, completed training in energy bodyworks like therapeutic touch and Reiki, and operates her own private counseling practice.

As you get to know Diane, you'll learn about her interests in fitness, writing poetry and fiction, acrylic painting, and finding ways to make healthy food taste delicious. She believes in the integration of mind and body, that every human has limitless potential, and that authentic connection to self and to others is the crux to living well – all reasons why we are overjoyed to have her as part of the growing Gentile Family Direct Primary Care family.

Her ability to meet people where they are, identify obstacles to optimal health, and support people in creating their most meaningful, fulfilling and healthy life are invaluable to this community, and I look forward to each and every one of you getting to meet her soon!
