While we can’t erase the past, we can work together to understand and resolve the challenges they may continue to present. Ariela offers a variety of professional therapy services in both English and Spanish. She strives to create an inclusive and supportive environment in which clients can heal, grow and learn without fear of judgment. Whatever you may be going through, we can work together to create long-term solutions.
Childhood can be full of transitions and many children may benefit from additional support. Ariela provides a safe space for them to voice their experiences. Just like adults, children can face a variety of issues and stressors that can be improved with the help of an experienced professional. If you’ve noticed changes in your child’s mood (withdrawn, irritable, behavior changes, struggling in school) talking with a mental health professional can help. By setting goals and taking small steps, we will get to the root of the struggle your child is experiencing. Subsequently, your child can re-engage with life, school, and friends in a positive way.
Adolescents today may face many issues and challenges that can lead them to feeling overwhelmed. Teenage years can be a time of great vulnerability. Your teen may be suffering from low self-esteem, increased anxiety and lack of motivation. Some warning signals include a marked change in academic performance and poor decision-making. Teenagers have not yet fully developed coping skills to deal with their distress. Sometimes adolescents can benefit from discussing their problems with someone outside of their family to relieve the pressures they feel.
You may move through each day feeling unfulfilled, overwhelmed, anxious, depressed or lonely. Sometimes, it can feel impossible to break out of this cycle of distress or dissatisfaction. Therapy can provide you with the knowledge, skills and support necessary to manage your current situation. Together, we can work toward helping you manage whatever challenges you may be facing by creating an action plan for change. To facilitate deep healing from long-standing, recurring patterns, we will work collaboratively in a way that involves active engagement from you. I’ll help you process your current difficulties, develop new behaviors & perspectives, and forge the life you want to lead.
