Rainbow Counseling believes in Inclusive Therapy.
This means we value being an affirming ally and advocate for underrepresented humans including Black and People of Color, LGBTQ+ folx, the kink community, poly and non monogamous relationships, intersectional identities, and all the bodies they come in.
Life isn’t always easy. Sometimes, even the strongest people amongst us need a little bit of help to work through some of life’s more challenging problems. Everyone has battles to fight and hurdles to overcome at some point. Whether you struggle with anxiety, depression, self-esteem, or any other issue, you should know that there is hope for a better tomorrow.
Online Affirmative Counseling for Individuals, Couples, & Families of All Kinds
You might be initially hesitant to seek out help and support for personal matters, but when you do, you will feel confident that you are taking a courageous first step towards getting to a better place and being a better you.
My practice specializes in treating individuals, couples and families, and through years of experience, I’m confident that no problem is too great to overcome. Through therapy, there is always a way to address the issues you face and learn coping strategies to help you both right now and in the future.

Compassionate & Professional
I care about you, your family, and your story. You can trust that I will treat you with respect, dignity and compassion in every interaction, while maintaining the highest standards for integrity and ethics.
Ariel Sheeger MS, PhD (can), NCC, LCPC
When my clients are with me, they can expect me to treat them with respect, humility, and genuine curiosity about their unique experiences. They can also except to be affirmed for what is right about who they are and lovingly challenged to grow.
I love working with adults of all ages. Couples (monogamous, monogam-ish, and poly) seeking to rekindle intimacy, understand how they argue and do it better, address sexual issues, deal with infidelity, and otherwise realize the relationship’s greatest potential, will have a safe (albeit challenging) experience with me. My clients will find that I am LGBTQIA, sex work, poly, kink, BDSM, etc. affirming and that my approach is non-pathologizing above all else.
I believe in exploring openly and honestly who you truly are, what has made you you, and finding acceptance with your strengths and weaknesses (often one and the same!). I use Mindfulness, Differentiation (holding on to yourself while remaining connected in your relationships), DBT, EFT, and Socio-Cultural-Based therapies to inform my therapy and create a holistic approach to treatment that empowers clients to build self-acceptance and emotional resilience.
