About

As a therapist, I'm very humanistic. I believe your treatment should be guided by you. I encourage you to have compassion for yourself as you learn to recognize that you are not your thoughts. When I'm not doing therapy, I enjoy acrylic painting. I love doing 'dirty pours,' where you pour a bunch of paints together on a canvas, and a piece begins to take the shape of its very own unique, individual self.

In therapy, It's important to be patient with yourself. The goal is progress, not perfection. As a team, we'll get there. You'll learn to become comfortable sitting inside of your feelings, and learning how to cope with your fears in a new way.

Arielle is lovely. She assured me that while I have struggled with OCD for a very long time, so long that I trust the process, my tendencies should get more like those of a functioning human being.

I had an educational appointment to help a close friend who was recently diagnosed with OCD. After reading a lot about OCD, I wasn't sure how to handle some situations. My therapist helped me clarify ways I can help my friend.

I feel like it was a good fit for me. I like how she encouraged me tell her as much as possible so it was not like an interview. And when I wanted it to be like an interview she was happy to switch her style to accommodate me.
