Diana Hill, Ph.D.

My goal as a psychologist is to help clients live a more meaningful, vital and fulfilling life. I provide compassionate and effective therapy that will help clients learn new skills and launch them in the direction they want to be moving in their life. 

I take a holistic approach drawing from my rigorous background in the science of behavior and my training in acceptance, compassion and mindfulness. I am a specialist in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. I offer workshops and clinical supervision to professionals and in ACT, DBT, and Appetite Awareness Training, and I am a certified yoga instructor.

I completed my undergraduate work at the University of California at Santa Barbara, majoring in Biopsychology, followed by a Master of Arts and a Doctor of Philosophy in Clinical Psychology at University of Colorado at Boulder (7 years of postgraduate training). I collaborated with Stanford University School of Medicine Psychiatry Department in researching the adaptation of Dialectical Behavior Therapy for the treatment of bulimia nervosa, and completed my postdoctoral fellowship at La Luna Center in Fort Collins, Colorado.

When not practicing psychology, I am chasing after my two boys and nine chickens in the foothills of Santa Barbara, California.

I am a clinical psychologist, practicing in a medical setting in Denver, Colorado. I have a bachelor’s degree in Psychology and Anthropology from the University of Colorado, Boulder, and a Ph.D. in Psychology from Harvard University. I have a background in developmental psychology, and my clinical practice focuses on veterans with a variety of physical disabilities and mental health concerns. My primary approach to psychotherapy is Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). I have been a lecturer at Harvard University in the Department of Psychology, and am passionate about teaching and training mental health professionals in ACT and supervising psychology students.

I love living in Colorado, my home state, with my husband and two young daughters, ages 3 and 5. When I’m not busy working or podcasting, I enjoy reading fiction, cooking, travel, and getting outdoors in the beautiful Colorado Rockies.

RAE Littlewood, PH.D.

In my work as a psychologist, I provide evidence-based treatment to help clients to manage stress and illness, cultivate loving relationships,  navigate transitions and challenges effectively, and develop healthy habits for self-care. Working collaboratively, I help clients to identify, understand, and resolve problematic patterns in their lives.

With my expertise in health psychology, I offer an integrative perspective on what is needed to thrive emotionally, physically, and spiritually. I also offer specialty services for reproductive mental health, including coping with infertility, grieving loss, and adapting to motherhood.

I completed my Bachelors in Psychology at the University of Colorado, Boulder. I earned my Masters and Doctorate in Clinical Psychology at Syracuse University. My post-doctoral fellowship was completed at the Mind Research Network in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

As the mother of two boys, I am grateful to be shown, everyday, how to live fully and authentically in the present moment.
