About Arien

I understand what it’s like to struggle after abuse. To feel lost, fearful, hopeless. I’ve been there and I’ve healed it. Now I’d love to guide and mentor you as you find the same peace, prosperity, and joy.

My Story

I’m best defined by my curiosity, optimism, and insatiable desire to help others.

I’m the type of person who, on a trip to the ER, will make the doctors laugh and smile even after I’ve been there for several hours. I’ll also sit down with a struggling friend or client and my own eyes will tear up with deep empathy as I help them through their stress.

I’m also a survivor of 15 years of sexual abuse, starting at age 5. I’ve almost lost my life to the hands of my abusers multiple times, I’m a victim of sex trafficking, and I left college before graduating because I was assaulted for 13 months by my best friend. 

So, when I say I know what it’s like to struggle, I mean it. I’ve been in your shoes, struggling with that fear of trauma happening again. That sense of defeat where it feels like our abusers won, that they took away our chance at a good or normal life. I’ve been there. And, I’ve also found freedom from these pains. 

I learned, through my pain, how to create a life I love. One with a beautiful fiancée, sweet goldendoodle pup, two businesses I adore, and a lifestyle that really fits me. 

I’m not without some PTSD, some hard memories. I was abused for most of my life, those are going to stick around. But, they no longer define me and they no longer consume me.

That’s joy, in my book, for us survivors. A deep peace with all emotions, easy and tough ones. A sense of freedom from our past, found through loving acceptance of ourselves. And the strength and courage to get through any new challenges life throws us. That’s what I’m here to teach you. And, if you allow me to, I’ll do it with honor and gratitude.

He makes you feel truly understood, human, nurtured, safe, and capable. Almost like a guardian angel in human form."
