"Ariana has been an extraordinary mentor and guide for me during my year long internship in her Ecotherapy Program. She has fully supported me in discovering my unique voice as an Ecotherapist... I received all the skills, resources, and support that I needed to emerge confidently into the field of Ecotherapy."
~ Andrea Livingston, M.A.

"I had a lot of questions about how to bring my clients into the Ecotherapy process, and after working with Ariana, I felt well equipped both personally and professionally to bring clients outside. Ariana embodies her love for Ecotherapy through her teaching and sensitively holds the space for learning..."
~ Aimee T., Somatic LMFT

"Ariana facilitated a wonderful retreat at the Fred Finch Center! Our therapists felt deeply replenished personally, as well as inspired clinically, to bring Ecotherapy techniques to their clients. Ariana is very engaging and offers an artful combination of learning, insight and self-care. I am looking forward to have her for retreats and trainings in the future."
~ Sandra Amador Mora, MFT, Program Director, Fred Finch Youth Center

"I often feel frazzled and disconnected, but whenever I have attended one of Ariana's workshops, I become grounded, embodied, and more connected with myself, others, and the planet. It feels like a tune-up for my body and soul; I leave feeling more in balance and in harmony. Ariana's workshops and exercises have not only helped me connect with myself and my purpose, but given me tools to put what I've gained to use out in the world. She brings a wealth of experience, intuition, and gentleness into her work."
~ Jonathan Wanlass, MA Psychospiritual Life Coach & Group Facilitator
