Ariana

I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in NYC with over 5 years of experience working in a variety of roles at Northwell Health facilities including Zucker Hillside Hospital and Cohen Children’s Medical Center. I have assisted children, adolescents, and adults in crisis care, alongside providing weekly individual therapy.


My love for working with teenagers came from my experience at CCMC, thus my current area of focus is with adolescents and young adults. This past year, teens and young adults have experienced so much loss, changes in expectations and outlooks on their future, during a time in their life when they are already questioning so much about themselves. I aim to assist my clients in further developing their sense of self, working towards their goals, and maintaining an eager outlook on their future, while we sift through the barriers towards a better quality of daily life.


I use a combination of therapeutic modalities starting from a psychodynamic lens, while incorporating CBT/DBT techniques, and I have also been trained in trauma-focused CBT. I have supported people through anxiety/panic, depression, healing from trauma, mood disorders, and many other concerns.
