About me

Hi! My name is Arianna, and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and Certified Substance Abuse Counselor. As a therapist I support individuals in becoming the best versions of themselves. I have worked with clients experiencing depression, anxiety, addiction, and are ultimately looking to live more full and authentic lives.

My approach to counseling is client centered. I believe everyone has the tools within themselves to resolve whatever challenges they are facing; my role is to guide you to look internally to find and develop them. Using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), I help make connections between what you think, how you feel, and how you behave. My process includes assisting you with finding solutions to problems and building on innate qualities and strengths.

My main objective is to help individuals develop healthier relationships with themselves and others and create the tools necessary to live the most fulfilling lives they can. Clients can expect to feel heard, seen, and supported in their journey to emotional and psychological wellness. If you are ready to take that step, I look forward to working with you!

Arianna is amazing and responsive. It is great how she digs in, but is also respectful of what you want to speak about. High quality!
