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.

More about me
I strive to create a comfortable atmosphere, in a judgement free zone, 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. I want to help you live an authentic and brave life. It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life 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 teens and young adults, experiencing significant transitions in their life. I have worked with children and teens, ages 5-17, and adults, ages 18-40, who have experienced anxiety, depression, low self-esteem 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. I then got the crazy idea to go back to school and earned my Master’s in Social Work from George Mason University in 2011. 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 binging 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 $35 to $80 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.
