Pia Arrendell, MA, LMFT, Marriage & Family Therapist in Asheville
Have you experienced pain in your relationship because of conflict, affairs or sexual addiction? Do you feel paralyzed, living with the devastating effects of a trauma, breakup or is your family in crisis leaving you feeling depressed and anxious? It can be difficult to reach out for help but also one of the most important things you can do. Therapy is about exploring obstacles keeping you from living your best life. I have extensive experience and training in Marriage, Family and Sex Therapy. I have personally seen and experienced the healing benefits of therapy and you are worth the investment!!!!
I specialize in helping individuals and couples thrive and heal from conflict due to affairs, lack of intimacy and communication skills, co-parenting problems, divorce, addiction and grief. Traumatic experiences can significantly impact how you relate to each other, however your past does not have to determine your future.
My approach is based on Cognitive Behavioral, Solution Focused and Family Systems therapy. I am certified in EMDR which is recognized by the World Health Organization as one of the most effective approaches in dealing with trauma.
