Arielle Ferry, LPC (she/her)
Hi! My name is Arielle, and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor. I graduated from the University of Scranton with a Master’s in Community Mental Health Counseling in 2014. Since then, I have worked in various settings in community mental health and substance use treatment.
I enjoy working with men, women, and families experiencing mental health issues, substance use, life transitions, or trauma. I also enjoy working with prepartum and postpartum women as they begin their journey into motherhood.
I utilize various techniques to explore counseling concerns, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Psychodynamic Therapy, and Relational Therapy. I aim to explore all concerns from a strengths-based perspective. I feel passionate about empowering individuals to find ways to recognize their needs and work toward having those needs met.
I believe that the therapeutic relationship is the tool that starts healing. My initial goal for my clients is that they feel comfortable and cared for. I prioritize the therapeutic relationship by bringing my genuine self to treatment, using open communication, and sharing in laughter and check-ins to help make the environment feel warm and safe. Once you feel safe, the work can begin.
When I’m not working, I spend time with my family, friends, and my dog, Frankie. I also like to read, watch movies and relax.
