The DiaNova Mission
10 Million people in the US and many times around the globe suffer from Intimacy Anxiety Disorder. We see a world where the ability for intimate connection is possible for everybody. The DiaNova Foundation’s mission is to pioneer training and research on intimacy anxiety and equip healers to work with those affected.
Most noteworthy, we endeavor to enable individuals to build and maintain spiritually-grounded, loving, nurturing and healthy intimate relationships, particularly for persons who are impeded by high anxiety, trauma and related causes. At the DiaNova Foundation we emphatically believe that the spirit, mind and body need to be integrated in order to heal.
The key DiaNova differentiator is combining spiritual guidance together with experiential work that integrates breathing, touching, sensing and moving as necessary components of complete and thorough healing and lifelong change. Other aspects of the healing span from cognitive reframing of unhelpful beliefs to catching up on simple dating skills that have not been used for a long time, depending on where the client lands on the intimacy anxiety spectrum.
The DiaNova Institute is the educational arm of the DiaNova Foundation focused on training practicioners, researching new procedures and deepening the data around the treatment of Intimacy Anxiety Disorder (IAD)
