Carla Diano completed a master’s degree in nutrition at the University of Toronto and has been a consulting dietitian for over 15 years. During this time, she recognized a strong relationship between eating behavior and mental health and decided to pursue a career in psychology. She is currently completing a master’s in counselling psychology at Yorkville University and is practicing as a student at Integra Health Centre. Carla applies a client-centered approach to identify strengths, competencies, and resources necessary to overcome challenges. During her work as a dietitian, Carla developed enthusiasm for education and enjoys teaching and mentoring students at George Brown College.
Outside of work and school, Carla enjoys spending time with her family and friends. She is a proponent of eating well and being physically active. As well, cooking and gardening provide a creative outlet for her own continued health and well-being.
