Medicine Woman, Holistic Psychotherapist, Psychedelic Preparation + Integration Specialist, Yoga Teacher, Reiki Practitioner
Gaithersburg MD
I am here to serve those who continue to arrive back at the same question, the same feeling, the same sense that the trajectory of the path they are on now is no longer in resonance. I am here to support each person's process of recalibrating to what their bodies, their hearts, their souls are yearning for and craving. A calling that may have been overshadowed and clouded by the prioritization of the restless mind and the systemic residue we all have collected from the strong, forceful nature of conditioning we often receive about who, what, and how we ought to be. The path back to ourselves is not one of glamour, and yet it is possible to find grace within the growing pains of expansion and change. l am here to walk with you on this journey back to yourself. Clients have shared that I hold a warm, empathic, and attuned space for them to explore, better understand, and potentially shift how they relate to themselves, to others, and to the world around them. I walk hand in hand with you, acting as a trusted support and steady presence as we traverse the path that you are calling before you.
Arielle describes herself (she/her) as a human being of complexity with a multi-racial and multi-cultural background. While Arielle is a trained Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker and has formal experience in Western psychotherapy from a trauma-sensitive and intersectional perspective, her own healing experiences have afforded her a unique lens and presence to support those who seek to heal in other ways. Arielle has worked with various practices and modalities to commit to her growth process, including traditional Western psychotherapy, breath-work, clinical Qigong, acupuncture, Curanderismo and shamanic practices, spiritual mentorship, therapeutic massage, Usui Reiki, and Hatha Yoga. These experiences and Arielle's journeys with various plant medicine teachers have inspired her to create a grounded, informed, and supportive container for individuals who wish to prepare for and more deeply process and integrate their experiences with psychedelics and other non-ordinary states in a way that weaves the lessons, insights, and teachings into daily life practice.
