About Me

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, licensed in the state of New Jersey with over 17 years’ experience helping people like you. I have extensive training in family and systems therapy. I am also a certified life coach. I start with you and your concerns and help you achieve your goals. My goal is to enhance your life and enable you to live the life you are looking for.

Although I have worked with children and adolescents, I focus my efforts on adults and the stresses that come with being in adult relationships. That includes marriage and relationship issues, work/family balance, living with family members with mental illness, cross-cultural issues and adjustment, as well as depression, and anxiety. I have worked extensively with adult survivors of childhood trauma.

I use a great deal of positive psychology in my work. I will listen carefully, strive to understand, and adjust the sessions according your needs and abilities. Nonetheless, I will encourage you to take steps to reach your goals and objectives. If you suffer from depression or anxiety, I will not only try to make you “undepressed” or “non-anxious,” I will work with you to find meaning, joy, and happiness. If you are confused or looking for direction, we will work to help you find the confidence you need.

Engaging in therapy takes a lot of work. Change, even improvement, requires effort. My job is to guide, give direction, and support. Your job is to reflect, think, and help me know you and your situation better. Together we can work "miracles".

I’d love to work with you to help you meet your goals.

Written by C.H. on May 22, 2018 after counseling with Ari for 9 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship, and anger

Working with Ari has helped me in my personal and professional relationships. He’s helped me understand a lot about myself which helps me understand the “why” ...

Written by J.E. on May 18, 2018 after counseling with Ari for 5 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship, family, trauma and abuse, grief, intimacy-related, sleeping, self esteem, anger, and bipolar

Ari has been working with me for about 6 months. When I first started I felt extremely negative about myself and my outset on life. Today I'm feeling more positive and even look forward to what will be happening for me n the months to come.

Ari has been very supportive and listens and offers a lot of helpful ways to overcome certain attitudes and destructive habits. He has given me the ability to navigate my life in ways that are different from the ones I had been applying and were not working for me anymore.

He's kind and friendly and nonjudgmental. For the first time in my life I have found a therapist I actually look forward to talking to about my life and experiences I have because I don't feel like crap after talking to him.

He's extremely professional and will dig deeper when he thinks it's time.

I am very thankful for BetterHelp and for them connecting me with him.

Ari Hahn overdelivers on his time promises, pretty sure he works weekends even though he says he doesn't. He cares, and takes my concerns seriously and offers options for solutions to present. I'm very happy with my experience thus far.
