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.
