Ariana Candell, LMFT, R-DMT, Marriage & Family Therapist in Berkeley
Therapy can a vibrant experience! We can discover together where your aliveness is, and what gets in the way, or keeps you from experiencing your connection, creativity, and grounding. We can work together to find the blocks inside you, and with awareness and gentleness, shift those to places of more flow and energy.
My work with you is guided by heart connection, expansion, and a steady grounded presence. I work somatically and intuitively, guiding you to discover the subtle impulses in your body that go unnoticed, and helping translate these into meaning and action. Through mindfulness and experiential approaches, your natural process unfolds.
I have two decades of experience practicing therapy with adults and couples. Trained in Hakomi and Dance/Movement Therapy, I blend these with nature-based practices. When it's appropriate, I invite clients to go to close-by natural settings to receive and connect with the support of the Earth.
