Arielle Shapiro



Arielle started her career in the entertainment industry. Through producing human interest stories for talk shows, she realized how many people are out there who need help and support. She always knew that if she wasn’t working in television, she would be a therapist and after her last television job, she wanted to do more and truly make a difference in people’s lives. Arielle has worked with a variety of populations and age groups, but her passion is working with, supporting, and guiding adolescents and young adults.

Clients like you find Arielle to be relatable, warm, and compassionate. She creates a space where you can open up without judgment. Arielle will help you look at things in new and different ways using a variety of practices and techniques, following a one size does not fit all approach.

Many may not know that: While no longer working in television, Arielle still loves watching it – and has watched Gilmore Girls and Buffy the Vampire Slayer at least five times each. She loves cold weather and snow – one of the reasons she got her undergraduate degree in Boston was for the weather. People tend to pronounce her name Ariel (like The Little Mermaid), but it’s actually pronounced R-E-L.
