MA, LPC, ATR
As a clinical mental health counselor and art therapist, I believe in the human potential and the power of transformation. Counseling is a working process that begins with a relationship. Understanding the client’s perspective is a foundation for making therapeutic progress.

My areas of focus include working with trauma, stress, and goals for the future. I have been trained in EMDR and Art therapy and these approaches compliment talk therapy and can be tailored to meet each client's needs. Much of our work together will focus on how to regain internal peace/functionality through small, strategic, and obtainable goals.
Ariel Lento Magidson
I am a doctor of clinical psychology, with my focus being in human potential. My background is in critical trauma. I work with people on their current happiness... examining how past events affect the present. I personally believe people should feel empowered, and learn how to influence their life for the better. I like to see people become leaders in their own lives. I like to advocate for radical self-care, and self-love.

As a therapist, my goal is to work with you to get through difficult times, learn more about yourself, build on your strengths, and achieve personal growth. It can be scary to tell a stranger your innermost thoughts, but I'm here to hold the space for you to feel those feelings.
MA, LPC, ATR
I believe one of the bravest things you can do is begin to understand your own story. Self-love and seeking out a life worth living can feel tedious, overwhelming, and out of reach. Through therapy, we can work together to better understand how to navigate life, cope with stressors, process trauma, and begin living with purpose
What is your story? I firmly believe that you have a story to tell. Somewhere or sometime along the way, the story has not been written or told the way would have liked. It’s also possible you are experiencing some anxiety or possibly depressed because of this. The “broken” story may have affected past and present relationships.
Life can sure throw us some curveballs. I've seen my share I can assure you (I left full time ministry and sold cars for a few years; Yah, sometimes curve balls!). Sometimes life's troubles can be hard to navigate. I would be honored and consider it a privilege if you would allow me to come alongside and help.
MA, LPC, ATR-P
You are unique. Therefore, I'd like to spend time learning your language - How do you experience life? How do you view yourself? What is your story and how is this impacting you now? Trust is foundational to our work together so that you can feel supported and heard. Our sessions will be collaborative - we will actively work together - to focus on what has been going on AND discover what life looks like moving forward. Let's honor where you are AND learn skills to support your health.

I believe that we all have a story to tell, we decide where that story is going, and we create our stories in the here and now. I strive to meet clients as they are and where they are when they come to therapy. I aim to create a welcoming, authentic, and safe space to explore feelings, develop stronger coping skills, and gain insight.

Perhaps you have struggled with depression/anxiety, and you are looking for ways to cope and decrease your symptoms. Maybe you have experienced one or multiple traumas throughout your life, and want to learn how to live without those traumas disrupting your current life.
MA, LLPC, ATR-P
Life can present you with all kinds of challenges and you do not need to face them alone. Aside from the treatment of mental illness, people attend therapy for many different reasons: to learn how to better communicate in their relationships, to explore feelings following a divorce or another big life change, to cope with a sudden loss or traumatic event, or to manage anxiety around a stressful job. Everyone’s story is different, and I am here to listen to yours.

We will take time to develop a client/therapist relationship built on mutual trust and respect to facilitate exploration and promote healing. My training and therapy style draws upon theories of attachment (dynamics of long term interpersonal relationships), object-relations (how relationships are affected by early experiences), family systems (understanding the individual within family context), emotional focused (viewing emotions as centrally important to experience of self and others), and life stage development (psychosocial theory of personality development).
