Professional statement

Ariana K. Goswick is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in the Flatiron/Union Square district of Manhattan. She specializes in anxiety, grief and loss, life transitions, creative blocks and LGBTQI experiences, with a particular expertise in supporting clients through the stages of trauma recovery.

Ariana’s approach is integrative, pulling from evidence-based trauma therapy techniques such as Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) and more open-ended, expressive modalities such as experiential and body-centered therapy. She also uses Polyvagal Theory and the Adaptive Information Processing Model, and her practice is informed by Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT).

Ariana is also well-versed in mindfulness practices. She incorporates elements of Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT), with the goal of assisting clients with increasing awareness of distressing moods, negative core beliefs and accompanying physical symptoms, while increasing capacity to shift states and adopt new and positive perspectives.

Clients frequently come to Ariana for help with the aftermath of traumatic events, either chronic or isolated; she provides engaged support to guide them to a place of healing and strength. Ultimately, her goal is to provide a space where clients can explore their life situations and patterns, while processing options for enacting and maintaining healthy, long-lasting change.

Ariana's office is located a few minutes from Madison Square Park and Union Square, just steps away from the R/W trains at 23rd street. She looks forward to welcoming you there.

Message to clients

Greetings! Thank you for your interest in learning more about collaborating with me. I have provided information below, on my theoretical orientation and areas of specialization. Please feel free to message me with any questions, or schedule a 10-minute phone consultation. Sending well wishes your way!

I work together with individuals who are curious; curious about their patterns, curious about the possibility of relief, of healing, of strengthening, and of social connectedness. Life is full of overwhelming experiences that can translate to distressing levels of sadness, anxiety, anger, regret, shame, disappointment, indecision and confusion. Together, we will explore the unique features and drivers of such challenges, and in doing so, cultivate capacity for long-lasting change.

I approach my clients from a Strengths-Based lens, and use a variety of techniques informed by Polyvagal Theory and the Adaptive Information Processing Model (AIP). I specialize in trauma recovery, and use the technique of EMDR to address a wide variety of overwhelming life experiences.

I am keenly aware of how daunting it can be to find a new therapist. The saturation can overwhelm and leave one feeling that the right fit may be out of reach. For this reason, I offer no-cost, 10-minute phone consultations, to give you the opportunity to determine whether my style and approach best meet your needs. I look forward to hearing from you!
