My passion for counseling is evident to my clients across all ages and backgrounds. I believe all people deserve the chance to be heard without judgement and we all possess the ability to take control of our lives so that positive changes begin to happen.
My experience includes over 11 years of diagnostic assessment and treatment of mental health and substance abuse disorders. I am available for individual, couples and family counseling sessions. I have counseled children, adolescents and adults from culturally diverse populations with many symptoms including stress, anxiety, depression, anger, adjustment disorders and trauma among many others.
I am a licensed professional clinical counselor (LPCC) in the state of Ohio where I was born and raised. I received a Bachelor's in Psychology and a Master's in Community Counseling from The University of Toledo. My treatment approach includes techniques from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing and Solution Focused disciplines.
If you are looking for an easygoing therapist with a caring ear to help facilitate change in your life please work with me! I look forward to meeting you.

I worked with another counselor for over 6 months before working with Arielle Ballard. In one 30 minute session, I got more accomplished in terms of structuring goals, building coping mechanisms, and recognizing thought patterns, than I had in the 6 months working with the other counselor. I'm pleased with my progress and am very greatful to Arielle.
Arielle is both knowledgeable and compassionate. She has provided me with some great resources and tools to help me understand what is beneath the behaviors. She checks on me frequently, which I appreciate. I like that I can schedule an online session with her when I need to, and I can get scheduled relatively quickly. I never feel rushed through a session. I would definitely recommend her to others who need help working through their mental health issues.
Arielle is very attentive, supportive and knowledgeable about what she does. You can tell she cares about her clients and treats them with compassion, respect and kindness.
She’s helped me very much with my issues and would recommend her to a friend or colleague
Great listener and is able to respond to my sporadic point of views while I’m under self destructive moods and other things.
Arielle is extremely understanding and knowledgeable about difficult relationship and self awareness problems. She listens but also responds with actual suggestions and solutions instead of just being someone to vent to. I highly recommend her for relationship and insecurity issues.
I’ve been with Arielle for a few weeks and I feel like she understands what to say and when to say it. She is great at having me think about the roots of the problem and not just the problem itself. She is an amazing therapist and extremely helpful.
