The Help You Need

Transitions Can Be Tough


Are you going through a stressful or troubled time? So many people are these days! Transitions can leave us feeling overwhelmed and powerless. If you are facing divorce, the death of a dear one or beloved pet, loss of a home or job, health issues, or other life crisis, you need support and guidance—you need an ally!

Who I Help


I’m Dr. Patricia Ariadne, Ph.D., MFT. My office is in Encinitas, California. Over the past 25 years, I have helped hundreds of people navigate change. Let me be your guide as you cross to the other side of your difficult life situation. I can help you heal your past, manage your present, and shape your future. 

I work with individuals from emerging adulthood to seniors. One of my specialties is grief work. Another specialty is helping people get back on their feet after divorce. As an associate professor in psychology, I know the unique issues that young adults face starting out in life. I also work with people dealing with the aftermath of childhood abuse.

Therapy Doesn't Have to Take Forever

My clients tend to be regular people with everyday problems and issues. Some problems are easily resolved in just a few sessions. I work with many different techniques, tailoring my approach to your specific needs. 

Don’t wait—call today to get the help you need and deserve!
