Hello! I'm Ari.
I specialize in Trauma, LGBTQ+ needs, Anxiety, Depression, and ADHD.
I have experience working in private practice, family centers, and residential settings.
I attended the University of North Texas and obtained my Master's in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. I received training in EMDR S.A.F.E Approach. Previously, I have gained experience in residential settings by leading groups and facilitating completing intakes. In previous settings, I have gained a wealth of experience in promoting skills in navigating sexual identity and gender expression.
How I provide support
The lingering discomfort as you enter a new environment. The edge-wavering feeling between the desire to live authentically yet trying to hide just enough to go unnoticed. The guard you built up for protection from unsolicited looks or critical remarks getting too heavy. I try to provide a space to be your authentic self as we collaborate to identify areas where you may feel stuck. My goal as your therapist is to affirm your identity and help you navigate toward self-acceptance. I am happy to provide therapy services either online or in-person at our Denton, Texas, location, to best fit your needs and preferences.
