Holistic Therapy: Areta believes mental health is ones part of a larger puzzle. She believes in finding ways to engage to mind and body to encourage you to take a look at your lifestyle and how it may be helping or hurting you.

Getting “Unstuck”: Feeling trapped by your life is a terrible experience, and Areta understands what you are going through. She can help you find your way out of routine, even if change isn't comfortable.

Coping with Anxiety and Depression: Anxiety and depression are two of the most common mental health issues, but every person is differently affected. Areta makes sure you are heard at every appointment. The first step is the hardest, but you can get your life back under your control.

In therapy, Areta uses different approaches depending on your needs. She utilizes CBT, DBT, and Solution-Focused therapy. She thrives off feedback and builds the ideal coping mechanisms to help clients heal.
