My passion for helping others was seeded at an early age and has developed with time and experience. Since my service as a medic in the military and throughout various roles over 15 years in the behavioral health field, my passion has evolved into a calling and has granted me the opportunity to help others all across the lifespan who experience difficult and complex challenges, such as mental health, addiction, criminal justice involvement, trauma, grief and loss, adjustment issues, among other life stressors and challenges. show more
My education and experience have sharpened my skills, broadened my understanding, and enhanced my sense of empathy which helped enrich my personal and professional development as a counselor. Through this development, I gravitated to an Adlerian theoretical orientation which centers on goal-oriented and holistic approaches that foster social connectedness and personal growth to help maximize one’s ability to find and experience their true potential. This orientation allows me to use various evidence-based strategies that support harm reduction and wellness models to improve quality of life.
As eloquently stated by Berne Brown, “Vulnerability is the birthplace of love, belonging, joy, courage, empathy, and creativity. It is the source of hope, empathy, accountability, and authenticity. If we want greater clarity in our purpose or deeper and more meaningful spiritual lives, vulnerability is the path.” My goal is to help create space where one can find comfort within their vulnerability and feel supported on their journey to wellness.

I absolutely love my therapist, he has taught me tools to help me live and cope with my permanent issues. Making life a little easier. He is always there engaging with even my smallest to biggest venting sessions
It was helpful and I feel like Dr.Arias was informative, listened to my problems, he as well made me feel comfortable to share.
This counseling group is amazing just seeing one. I met with arias and he personally had changed my life for the better and I couldn’t be more thankful for that. Definitely give this place a try if you need help and don’t be afraid to ask my experience was amazing and I’m glad to have been given an amazing person to help me along my journey
My intake appointment was amazing, it was thorough and didn’t feel like someone just reading from a book, it felt like a conversation even though at times we had to rush to answer all the questions in the time we had allotted. They make sure you feel comfortable with whom you’re speaking with and make sure you’re speaking to the right person for you regardless of race, creed, religion everything!
I feel that Arias Gonzalez was very professional, prompt and on time. He also appears to be very knowledgeable and different techniques to help me with my healing journey. I'm excited to see what the future holds as I continue sessions with him !
Arias was a very very professional and amazing counselor it’s amazing the amount of help he was able to provide me
