I am sooo grateful to have been paired with Aracely! She has been monumental to my mental health and emotional healing she is very respectful but also knows exactly the right way to push and challenge you in the process. I couldn’t imagine being paired with a better counselor!

Aracely is the best therapist I’ve had. I’ve had major breakthroughs with my relationships, anxiety and depression with her.

I can't say enough good things about Aracely. Due to moving, I can't continue service with her. Since I can't pack her and bring her with me, I must shout the relief she has brought me over the past year. Kindness, compassion, and professional.

Aracely has been a wonderful confidant to me during a very difficult time full of transition. She has helped me to understand my wants and needs, communicate effectively, and has given me many tools for managing my anxiety. I can tell that she really cares about helping me to reach all of my goals I've created with her and she is also incredibly flexible- which is much appreciated as I don't have much control over my schedule! She's compassionate and gentle but also will do the work to help me to see what part of me needs healing or needs extra attention. I would recommend her to anyone!

I have had the honor of having Aracely as my therapist, she has helped me through some very difficult events of my life. She provided me with tools to help me during those difficult times and even childhood traumas. Even though she and I only worked together for about 2-3 months, I feel like those tools will help me for a lifetime. I highly recommend Aracely! She didn’t even know me and was able to pinpoint my personality traits. She gives great constructive criticism when it’s needed, and it a listening ear when it’s needed. She’s also extremely responsive, which is needed when times are tough.

I'm grateful to be working with her. She's helped me throughout a lot and doesn't sugar-coat things. She supports me and reaches back to me when I'm not feeling it. She puts things in perspective and sends me homework that has actually helped me progress a lot. I like that she keeps me accountable.

Well, I’ve barely just started this whole thing but I appreciate Aracely. She’s been great. She doesn’t allow me to hide or conceal anything, even over a phone conversation, and I mean that in the best way possible. She helps me look introspectively in a constructive way. I trust her, and appreciate how seriously she’s taken my own mental health.
