Ariel Tobyas, LMHC

I love my cats and I am a voracious reader. I also make time for my family and weekly trivia challenges with friends.

Licensed mental health counselor

I have been with A New Awakening Rio Rancho for two and half years as both an intern and licensed mental health counselor. I have engaged clients for both individual and group sessions. I also was an intern with the Bernalillo County Sheriff’s department.

why i am a counselor

I have always had the desire to help others. Becoming a counselor has been my only focus since I graduated high school. I discovered how I could put my talents to use and help others with the many challenges life throws at you.


Obtain a variety of certifications so that I can specialize in number of areas.
