Sheila Arias

Individual & Couples

As an Afro-Latina bilingual Licensed Marriage and Family therapist, I work with many members of marginalized communities to talk about their unique experiences and to break down barriers and stigma around mental health. When a client’s belief’s do not align with their cultural or family’s beliefs it can create distress, anxiety, and other challenging emotions. I help adults and couples explore issues important to them and to reexamine cultural beliefs, values, and personal ideology. I serve as a co-pilot with my clients and support them to drive their own process, to further create an awareness of the influence that life stressors have on them both as individuals as well as in their relationships. I support and guide my clients with the use of several different evidence-based modalities.
