Aria is a gift
And here is why..
Her wisdom is dipped in both conventional psychology (as a professional psychotherapist) and in an alchemy of spiritual, astrological, and somatic wisdom. Essentially, she is the ultimate one stop shop for seeker of soul answers.
She will meet you where you want and push you a little beyond.
Her astrological reading resonated with me more than any other I have received. So much made sense and, as a result, I felt more clear and more at peace as to how my life was unfolding.
Aria is embodied which is very important to me. Because she has been a professional dancer for many years and channels wisdom through her dance, I know she has a balanced connection between mind and body. Some other healers are too woo-woo for me or I can sense they are gravely ungrounded and lost in the ethers, so to speak. Aria has two feet firmly planted on this planet, yet she can zoom up into the skies and connect with the spirit realm with ease and finesse.
She is smart. Wicked smart and her insights are illuminating. Read her blog and you will get a sense of the intelligence and wisdom that she unfolds.
She is a true and humble teacher. This is important for me. Humility is something I need when working with a healer. I need someone who will listen and listen well. Who will gently guide me and yet be firm with compassion.
Overall, I feel extremely fortunate that I have connected with Aria and that I have her as a skilled resource and an ally as I venture forward on my spiritual path.
Seek her out. You will not regret."
"working with aria has been a wonderful experience. the combination of her intuitive gifts with her mental health counseling skills has been a very positive experience for me, a one hour session is never enough :). her work is very thorough and I would refer to anyone who is seeking and excellent, spiritual and highly intuitive counselor. ~CT
"I began a series of sessions with Aria Michaels Paradise at the tail end of a divorce from a 20 year marriage. I was an emotional mess. I was depressed, confused and angry.
I had worked with a therapist for several years before I started working with Aria, and had also worked with various therapists, psychopharmacologists, massage therapists, Shaman, and healers at various points in my adult life, and none of them had offered lasting relief.
Throughout the sessions with her I began to feel more centered, more positive about life, and able to manage and accept my feelings. I found my relationships, health, performance at work, my art, and even my outlook on life all improve for the better.
Today I have found the strength to make many major changes. My life has completely turned around. I have become the person I always hoped I’d be. Aria’s assistance and direction was a tremendous help! She has a unique gift. Her attention, sensitivity and compassion was able to break though barriers that I had thought were impenetrable. I can recommend her with without reservation." ~PW
"I asked Aria to work with me before my show, Swords, which was an evening of interpretive tarot. I'd been holding shows for a couple of years, but hadn't felt like I was connected in any great sense, and was often too scattered to form a bond with my audience. Aria gave me various exercises to do, but more importantly, showed me how to create a ritual space before my performances, so that I could set the stage for my intention. This was instrumental. It took me a couple of performances to actually do this, and I am still working on it, but now I have tools to work with. I highly recommend Aria- she has shown me a holistic approach to expressing myself in the creative arts." ~Margaret M.
