Ariana Zeppieri-Makhan

Virtual / In Person

Ariana Zeppieri-Makhan (she/they) has been a Registered Psychotherapist with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario since 2019. Their educational journey spans across North America, culminating in an MA from Yorkville University and an Honours BSc in Psychology from the University of Toronto. While their therapeutic focus is on Dissociative Identity Disorder, Ariana also works with individuals experiencing a variety of conditions such as stress, life transitions, identity development, anxiety, and grief, with a particular affinity for clients who are new to therapy. At the heart of Ariana’s therapeutic approach are the core values of collaboration, transparency, and humour, each playing a pivotal role in the way they connect with clients.

In individual psychotherapy sessions, Ariana’s methods are tailored to the specific needs of each client, creating a supportive and compassionate environment. Integrating a number of therapeutic modalities including Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT), psychodynamic principles, and elements of positive psychology, Ariana guides clients through profound self-exploration and helps facilitate transformative change. Their approach draws heavily on the utilization of her clients’ strengths and self-compassion, aiming to promote personal growth and self-understanding in every session.

Ariana also embraces ecotherapy, leveraging the restorative power of nature to boost therapeutic outcomes. With a deep understanding of the profound influence our surroundings have on mental health, Ariana employs ecotherapy to help clients forge a deeper connection with the natural world. This aims to foster a sense of tranquility, grounding, and a refreshed perspective, reinforcing their belief in the interconnectedness of human and non-human experiences and the significant benefits of engaging with the environment for mental and emotional wellness.
