Arielle PattyLPC, MA
Hello! I have been a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) since 2016, when I graduated with aMaster’s in Counselor Education from the University of Toledo. I received a Bachelor’s in Liberal Studies from Bowling Green State University in 2013, focusing in Fine Arts and Women’s & Gender Studies. I chose to become a therapist because beginning in childhood, my own healing was positively impacted by excellent mental health providers, and I hope to pay it forward!
My approach is rooted in radical acceptance, collaboration, and empowerment. You’re the top expert on you, and I highly value your input. If you choose to build a therapeutic relationship with me, I will be a passenger on your journey to offer support and direction, while you drive the bus.
I’m passionate about strengthening underserved and misunderstood communities. My primary focus is gender affirming care for those seeking help with identity exploration, barriers to transition, and social challenges. I’m committed to supporting the queer community, and I currently facilitate a youth LGBTQ+ support group at a local non-profit. For nearly ten years, I also held varying positions at a local domestic violence agency and received extensive advocacy training in supporting survivors of interpersonal violence. I’m also experienced in and passionate about working with neurodivergent folks. These communities often overlap, and I strive to honor the whole person, with intersecting and complex identities.
At home, my partner and I enjoy time with our many rescue kitties and dogs, home improvement projects, and watching movies. I usually have several stitching or painting projects in the works, and I love snacks!
