About Dianna Palimere, PhD, LCSW
Welcome! I am a psychosexual therapist, as well as a psychotherapist for individuals, couples and families. I am Licensed in Delaware and Pennsylvania. My educational background includes a Bachelors Degree in Psychology from the University of Delaware, a Masters in Social Work from Widener University, a Masters in Human Sexuality Education from Widener University and a PhD in Clinical Human Sexuality Education, also from Widener University. I have been in the field of mental health for the past sixteen years and have specialized as a sex therapist for the past twelve years. In addition to my private practice, I have also worked with various non-profit agencies to offer services to under-served populations and have taught as an Adjunct Professor in the MSW program at Widener University.
I have experience working with a variety of sexual issues and concerns as a therapist. The types of issues I frequently work with include problems with sexual functioning and/or responding, sexual assault and abuse, sexual trauma, trust and intimacy issues, arousal difficulties, sexual orientation concerns, erectile dysfunction, gender identity, lack of sexual desire, pleasing your partner, understanding how your body works, communicating sexual needs, self-esteem and body image. I enjoy working with diverse populations, including individuals and couples in the LGBTQ Community and the BDSM Community.
No matter what the issue, I am confident that I can help you resolve your sexual concerns. My approach to treatment is holistic, nonjudgmental, and sex positive. In general, I work from a strengths-based perspective. My treatment interventions include, but are not limited to: Interpersonal Psychotherapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Gestalt Therapy, Body-oriented Psychotherapy, and Group Psychotherapy. I have also completed 40 hours of training in Imago Relationship Therapy, and hope to complete the remaining hours of training in the near future.
