Ariana Flanagan


I'm a clinical social worker and want to help you create a space that makes sense for you and protects your peace as you work to cope with life changes, depression, anxiety, and unhelpful thoughts. 

I believe that therapy is showing up for yourself. Taking that approach, I am always mindful of the vulnerability of talking about yourself with someone, especially if it's for the first time.


Utilizing a trauma-informed, warm and gentle approach, we will explore what has brought you here. You may be experiencing life stressors, complex emotions of sadness or worry, or you may have experienced trauma.


You will be met with validation each step of the way as we work to unpack what you have been holding and create a space that can allow you to feel your emotions, and work through them. Living with pain, hurt, worries or a desire for change brings you out of the peace of the present. Let's find a way to bring you back to it.

I have immediate openings and welcome you to reach out to discuss what brought you here.

Ariana currently accepts BCBS, Aetna Harvard Pilgrim, Optum, Allways/MGBHP commercial, Mass General Brigham ACO, United, Tufts (including Tufts MassHealth), Wellsense, GIC Unicare, Fallon, Steward, C3, and MBHP.
