Diane Villanueva- Practice Manager
I am committed to make you and your family’s visit a positive one! I am the friendly face at the front office to help answer your questions, plan for appointments and to help resolve concerns. It is important to me that each of you enjoy a feeling of ease in our office. I love helping in what I can and it makes me happy to see you and your family succeed in your journey. My goal is to incorporate my 14 years of customer service and quality assurance management experience to equip our team to best serve you and your family. I developed a passion for psychology working in community counseling organization alongside the family assistance department. I knew then that I’ve always wanted to help make a difference. I look forward to expanding my knowledge in mental health at Compass. It is an honor to work alongside our knowledgeable, professional, and friendly team that care about your journey in providing guidance through life’s struggles. When I’m not working I am most proud of my 3 children. I enjoy traveling, cooking, theater, music, and everything Disney. I love to contribute my time off volunteering for children in need, and most of all I love creating memories with my family & pets.
Allison Johnson- Administrative Assistant
I’m a native Texan, born and raised in the Fort Worth area. I really enjoy living in this area with my husband. We don’t have any pets or kids but we love spending time with our little niece. In my spare time, I play guitar and watch true crime TV shows. I came to Compass because I know what it’s like to live with a mental illness every day and I want to do what I can to help other people who are hurting.
