Ariel Shumaker-Hammond, MPH/MSW, LCSW


I have a passion for working with people moving through new stages of their lives (the journey to becoming a parent, or leaving a relationship, for example), with adolescents and young parents, and with couples, and with little ones (ages 0-5) who have experienced trauma, or are going through a difficult transition. I love helping people navigate life's challenges and transitions, in a warm and compassionate, but also directive way. I specialize in infertility and pregnancy loss, pregnancy and postpartum issues, depression, anxiety, relationship issues, and infant and early childhood mental health. I empower clients to reach their ideal selves and to form clarity in their lives. I use an array of modalities, including Photo Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, CBT, Seeking Safety, Reflective Parenting, EMDR, Emotionally Focused Therapy, and Child Parent Psychotherapy. These are research validated, and I have seen amazing results. I invite you to a free phone consultation to see if we are a good match.
