More about me

Licensing: LCSW
Years in Practice: 15
State: VA

I strive to create a comfortable atmosphere where I can be supportive and helpful, utilizing humor where appropriate. My approach is relaxed and individualized. I believe you are the expert in your life and I am here to help, to listen, support and guide you, providing an unbiased perspective. My goal is to help facilitate hope, happiness and personal growth in the people I work with. It takes courage to seek support and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.

I'm a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I have been in the mental health field for approximately 15 years. I enjoy working with women experiencing anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, self-doubt, and difficulties throughout a transition or adjustment period. I have experience in residential, alternative school, in-home, and outpatient settings. I use a person-centered approach, meeting clients where they are and helping them to recognize their strengths, value, and resilience, and build upon those traits and experiences. I utilize mindfulness, cognitive-behavioral, strengths-based and solution-focused techniques.

Do you care where I went to school? I’m a first-generation college grad. I put myself through school, starting in community college in Northern Virginia and eventually completing my Bachelor’s of Social Work at George Mason University in 2007 and my Master’s in Social Work from George Mason University in 2010. I obtained my Licensed Clinical Social Worker status in Virginia in 2013.

When I’m not working, I spend way too much time eating tacos, listening to 90’s rap and bingeing reality TV. I'm fun, in a boring kind of way.

About online counseling

Online counseling allows you to receive care from an online mental health practitioner via phone, video chat, or instant messaging. It is convenient for those who may have trouble getting to or would prefer not to have in-person therapy appointments. Ranging from $60 to $90 per week, online counseling is generally more affordable than in-person counseling. A study by researchers at University of California, Berkeley found that online counseling can be just as effective as face-to-face therapy while being more convenient, affordable, and accessible.

Arien is the first therapist to actually understand my anxiety. I remember reading the message where I knew she just got it. I knew that I would, finally, be able to tackle my anxiety.
