Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, Nutritional Therapy Practitioner and Yoga Instructor

Meet Arielle Pinkston

Originally from Elk Grove, California, I earned my BA in Psychology from Sonoma State University and my MA in Clinical Psychology from Pepperdine University. As I began pursuing my therapy career, I was navigating major life transitions, graduate school and internships all while living far from my family and trying to figure out my place in the world. This is where my passion for working with college, and graduate students was born. I realized how many of us were struggling with our mental health.

While in grad school, I rediscovered yoga. Up until that point I had taken a handful of classes and had enjoyed it a lot, but never had a consistent practice. With everything going on in my life, I found that yoga was this grounding force I so desperately needed. I absolutely fell in love with it and decided to do my first teacher training. Balancing grad school and yoga teacher training was intense to say the least. Both required a lot of introspection and processing difficult emotions. The balance of these two practices helped me understand the healing power that a holistic approach to mental health can have.

Over the past decade as a therapist, I’ve had the privilege of supporting 100’s of women through their unique mental health journeys. While talk therapy and medication are great options, I wanted to expand my holistic approach to include nutrition. On my quest for more knowledge, I started researching how our exercise, food and mind all impact our mood. I read “This is Your Brain on Food” by Nutritional Psychiatrist Dr. Uma Naidoo and it changed my life. In the book she lays out the latest research on how to eat to support your mental health.

Shortly after that, I enrolled in the Nutritional Therapy Association’s program to become a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner. There, I dove headfirst into all things holistic nutrition. I’m not only fascinated with holistic nutrition as it relates to mental health but also love supporting women with prenatal nutrition and postpartum nutrition.

So often when treating our mental health we view it as it’s own seperate thing. We don’t consider how our diet, lifestyle and other factors might be impacting our mood. My hope with That’s So Well is to help women understand that a holistic approach to mental health can be so beneficial. My approach as a therapist combines professional expertise, a touch of humor, and a deeply individualized method that resonates with each person’s specific needs and experiences.
