Working with Ariela has been transformative for both my career and personal life.

She has a remarkable ability to get to the heart of issues and driving real progress. Ariela has played a crucial role in aligning our firm and has significantly improved my leadership abilities. Her guidance has united our team around our goals, making us more cohesive and focused.

Ariela possesses an exceptional natural talent and a profound grasp of individual psychology. Her approach is a unique blend of intuition and practicality, compassion coupled with straight forward honesty. She is great at identifying blind spots. Even when I think I have something totally figured out, sharing my circumstance with her invariably leads to indispensable insights I hadn’t considered. Working with her has not only improved my interpersonal relationships in various personal and professional settings, but has also heightened my self-awareness and equanimity. I have referred her to several friends, always with similarly positive results.

Ariela has been working with the Partners at our VC firm for almost 2 years. She has made a huge impact on how I approach the day to day of my job and life. Her work with me, specifically on communication, prioritization and how to make my voice heard in meetings has allowed me to be a more impactful employee & colleague. Ariela doesn’t sugar coat things, but has a thoughtful way of confronting issues and giving me tools and guidance to really support my goals.

Ariela has a kind but firm approach, which fosters deep self-reflection and the actions needed for change. Working with Ariela has led to a level of self-awareness I didn't know was possible. I am truly blown away when I look back on how much I have grown both personally and professionally since I started working with Ariela.

Ronit Tarshis

My life has changed 180-degrees in the year I’ve been working with Ariela. My 25-year marriage was coming apart at the seams… as was I. I have learned about living in integrity- to myself, trusting my wise adult, and countless other things that have enabled seismic changes in my life after being stuck far too long. 

It’s an ongoing process, and I’m feeling empowered and making good choices…so grateful for the work I've done with Ariela!

Neel Sus

Ariela is amazing. I've done a ton of personal development over the years but recently I had a blocker. I connected with Ariela, and she designed a five-hour, one-time workshop, and in one shot I was able to uncover the root problem, and she gave me tools to use afterward.

Luther Kitahata

Ariela has a way of listening deeply where she is able to quickly get to the heart of the issue. Combine that with a practical, action-oriented approach to work through the challenges we are currently facing and you have someone who is incredible at working with people of all types.
