Arya is a master counselor and life coach. He brings a potent combination of skills into his work: a sincere heart, a highly intelligent mind, and a wealth of professional training and experience. Every session feels expertly held in a professional yet humane container; the real issues are addressed, directly and sometimes sternly, but always with an authentic kindness and care.
Arya has helped me to:
-cut through my insecurities and obstacles around my artwork
-focus in on and take more action with my career in more ambitious and visionary ways
-navigate very old and difficult patterns with my family
-recognize and begin to authentically relate to things I was avoiding about myself/my life in a way that has led to way more relief, freedom and positive action
-and just more generally, being someone in my life I can trust to help me through the ups and downs of being a human
I'll share one more thing: though I didn't experience this directly, my dear friends went to Arya for couples coaching/relationship counseling. They said they received incredible benefit from their work with Arya, and that if not for his intervention, they don't know if they would have made it. They spoke about his acute attention to detail, especially in tracking the subtle habitual ways that they would shut down or leave their hearts, while giving them practicable alternatives to create the kind of connected, intimate, and fulfilling relationship they were longing for but couldn't find.
There's a reason (many reasons) why Arya is at the top of this yelp list. He is absolutely worth it!
