Ariana has provided therapeutic services to children and their families for over 10 years. She has primarily served infants and children ages 0-6 and their caregivers with a focus on building strong relationships. Ariana's passion is working with children who have experienced foster care, adoption, and other disruptions of attachment and supporting their secure attachment to their caregivers in order to heal and thrive.
She has education, training, and expertise in Infant Mental Health, attachment, adoption and foster care related issues, child development, neuro-developmental trauma, behaviors related to in utero substance exposure, and trauma-informed parenting.
Ariana also works with parents and caregivers to address their own childhood wounds which can often impact parenting. Often parents are able to identify that they want to parent differently than they were parented but need support and guidance in how to do this in a healthy way.
She works with parents in preparation for the birth, placement, or adoption of a child. Beginning services prior to the arrival of a child is ideal and positively impacts the transition for both adult and child. Ariana welcomes parents who have identified concerns about their child's development as well as parents who are looking for general support through their journey of parenting their infant/young child.
