About Arielle Fettman, MA, MFT

I hold a Master of Arts in Marriage, Couple, and Family Therapy from the Lewis & Clark Graduate School of Education and Counseling.

During my Masters Program I worked as a Family Therapy Intern at Peace Health Family Medicine of SW Washington in downtown Vancouver where I served individuals, couples, and families with a variety of needs. After earning my Masters Degree, I joined a community mental health agency as a school-based therapist working with teens and pre-teens and their families. Here I became certified as a Child Mental Health Specialist.

My transition into private practice was largely motivated by my desire to work more specifically with families and individuals around relationship difficulties including separation, divorce, co-parenting, and blended families. My interest in this area was initially influenced by my own experiences with couples counseling, divorce and co-parenting and has evolved into a passion for assisting people in acknowledging and expressing aspects of self-compassion, personal growth, and issues of identity. I have found that Internal Family Systems, or “parts work”, lends itself well to addressing these aspects of relationship transition. (To learn more about Internal Family Systems, please refer to the section regarding ‘My Approach’ to therapy.)

​I continually engage in post-graduate training specific to Internal Family Systems, divorce and mediation, trauma, attachment, and resilience.

​When I am not working you can find me spending quality time with my partner, our two young children, our four dogs, and one cat.
