PROGRAM DIRECTOR, FACILITY MANAGER
Diandra Medina, M.A., MFT
Diandra has a little over ten years of experience in working with co-occurring disorders. She completed her BA in Psychology at UCSD and MA in Marriage and Family Therapy through Alliant International University. She has remained in the San Diego area since her time in undergraduate school and has various experiences in multiple treatment settings throughout the community. Diandra incorporates a systemic dynamic in her therapeutic work. Throughout her experience, she started to gain a deeper appreciation for the significant role the physical body and awareness of the body plays in an individual’s recovery process.
Following this insight, Diandra completed additional trainings, including 200 hour yoga teacher and Reiki level 2, in order to be able to offer a more holistic approach for her clients. Aside from her work as Program Director for Center for Discovery, she has a private practice in the central San Diego area and is beginning to provide trainings for professionals on how yoga and mindfulness can positively impact the nervous system and overall therapeutic process.
