Ariel Wootan Merkling

Find your voice, walk your path, own your story. Iā€™m a believer in the resilience of the human spirit. I also know that it sometimes takes a safe, supportive therapeutic relationship to jumpstart that resilience and post traumatic growth. For those who have experienced confusing, scary or upsetting events my goal is to provide support as you process your past and design a life you love.

I have experience working with trauma, grief and loss, and faith transitions. I am passionate about finding creative solutions to complex problems. I specialize in using EMDR, DBT, and trauma focused CBT. I love holding space for clients across a wide variety of backgrounds and experiences helping you find the right answers for your journey.

You deserve joy and safety and I hope to support you as you find these things for yourself. I honor the courage and audacity it takes to move from surviving to flourishing. If you think I may be a good fit on your team, contact me to set up a 20 minute phone interview for free without any obligation. I look forward to speaking with you!
