Hey, I am Arielle. I am a National Certified Counselor and a Licensed Graduate Professional Counselor in Maryland. I have been in the mental health field for five years. I earned my Bachelor's degree in Psychology, Master's degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling, and I am currently earning my Ph.D. in Counselor Education and Supervision. 

Your goals are important to me! I have experience treating adults who suffer from a variety of mental health challenges. I take a person-centered approach to therapy which means you are treated as a person first. I focus on the strengths, not the condition or disability. I want you to achieve your therapeutic aspirations, which is why my approach is tailored to your unique needs and circumstances. 

I use techniques like Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Reality Therapy, Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy, Positive Psychology, Exposure Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Feminist Therapy, Journaling, and Mindfulness-Based Interventions.

What I love most about being a mental health professional is seeing people transform from day one until they finish their treatment. Witnessing the healing taking place is why I got into this field. One of the most exciting things I've learned as a mental health professional is that you can rise up from anything! Let's work together to maximize your well-being.
