Ariana is a Licensed Social Worker and received her Master of Social Work from Loyola University of Chicago specializing in Children and Families. She has worked extensively with children, teens, and young adults while working in the child welfare field prior to joining The Healing Center.
Specializations include Anxiety, Depression, Behavioral Issues, Self-Esteem, Anger Management and Trauma. Ariana practices evidence-based models including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Solution Based Therapy.
Ariana is an extremely energetic, compassionate, and empathetic individual. She offers her clients her undivided attention throughout each and every session. In addition, it is important that all clients are provided with a safe, open, and non-judgmental space where the child/ teen can feel comfortable. Trust is a key component in leading to building a strong relationship with the individual being seen.
While Ariana is not engaging in her practice, she spends time riding her horse or playing with her two big dogs and cat, Tuna. When the weather warms up, she loves to be outdoors.
