Hello, my name is Ariela Weston and I am a licensed clinical social worker in Alabama. I have 10 years of experience as both therapist and manager in our field. Since attaining my LICSW in the state of Alabama, and prior, I have been consistently engaged in the treatment of a great variety of client categories, and the administration of different program types. I have directed, managed, and/or supervised treatment programs, for adults, adolescents, and children. I have worked directly with clients with a wide range of concerns including substance abuse, depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, autism, and ADHD. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse. I have spent several years working as a school based therapist where I served adolescents with emotional and behavioral disturbances. I focus on building strong rapport and respect between client and therapist. I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) in order to assist clients in making their thinking more positive, decrease negative thinking habits and promote change. My approach also combines Strength-Based perspective, Solution Focused and Motivational interviewing.
My experience has taught me the value of compassion for everyone I have been privileged to serve. My therapy style is warm and interactive. My passion in life is to help others and I believe that the key to therapy with any person is respect. I would be honored if I was given the opportunity to support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you!

My experience with Ariela Weston has been nothing but amazing! I wanted to do therapy for at least 2 years before I started on teen counseling, but my fear of just talking to someone held me back! I was extremely nervous when I first started, but Ariela was extremely welcoming, and really eased my stress on starting therapy! I now look forward to my sessions, even if I havent had a hard time that week. I say that, because over the time short time I have spent with her, I really feel like a lot has changed in a positive way for me! She really has made an impact in my life, and I cannot wait to see where I continue to go with her help! Thank you so much Ariela! You truly have helped me so much!

I was extremely skeptical about teencounseling.com at first but Ariela has been nothing short of perfect! She is super knowledgeable, professional, understanding, and honest(a quality I think every therapist should aspire to demonstrate. I would 100% recommend Ariela to a friend (but not taking away my time) ha!
Honestly, after my previous experience with a different therapist I had doubts about therapy in general. Ariela, however, is awesome! She's like talking to a close friend. There's no judgement, no intimidation, she is understanding, direct yet genuinely caring, and overall a joy to talk to. I'm really, really glad that I have counseling a second chance and even more glad that I met Ariela.
Ariel’s is such a wonderful person! She’s listens and provides great ways to help obtain goals. She truly believes in what she is doing and helping out those in her charge. I’m grateful she’s part of my support network.
