Ariella believes that everyone deserves to be happy, and her job is to support you along your journey to finding that happiness.


Message to clients

I believe that the path to a successful therapeutic relationship starts with me bringing my full, authentic self into our sessions so you feel safe, comfortable, and confident in the work we are doing. I am an empathetic, warm, active listener who remains present during our sessions so I can meet you where you are on a given day. I believe that we are all the experts in our own lives, so I allow my clients to lead our sessions in the way they feel most comfortable and aim to provide the guidance and support they need to take their next steps forward.
