The Mission

Our mission at Sacred Space is to foster individual, ancestral, and collective healing. We are committed to providing accessible, trauma-sensitive, and holistic support, both for individuals and communities. Grounded in the principles of Curanderismo, Trauma Psychology, Somatics, and Intersectionality Theory, we aim to empower people on their healing journeys, nurturing the well-being of mind, body, and spirit for all.


remembering & reconnecting with who you truly are

Since childhood, I have moved through realms of darkness. There were many moments in my life where I was consumed by what felt like an inconceivable level of hopelessness, helplessness, and worthlessness. There were many times that I wanted to give up.

But I never did.

 Through all of the trials and tribulations I have faced in my life, I was forced to make a choice. A choice to no longer bind myself and bind those around me to the impact of the wounds I carried. Wounds bound up in my lived experiences and wounds bound up in the pain faced by my ancestors. I was given a choice to persist as a cycle perpetuator, or to resist. To be a breaker of the cycles of suffering that have plagued my lineage for so long. To reclaim the responsibility of exploring and tending to the pains of the past. To step onto the difficult and uncharted path of healing so I could remember with humility and with grace, who I truly am and remind myself why I am here on this earth.

My answer –

To hold Sacred Space for humanity to heal, so we can heal our world.

Arielle Mesa, LICSW


Arielle shares her ancestral roots with the Hebrew, Muisca, Basque, Slavic, and Celtic people. She holds a deep level of respect and gratitude in reciprocity for the wisdom and teachings of her ancestors, plant and animal teachers, and the Indigenous Medicine Keepers and Teachers of the Shipibo, Toltecca, Mazateca, and Santo Daime lineages and traditions.

Over the past decade, Arielle has been dedicated to supporting individuals from diverse backgrounds in navigating the often invisible wounds of their past. These wounds have included experiences of childhood abuse and neglect, complex grief and loss, relational trauma, sexual and domestic violence, and a myriad of other challenges that impact one’s well-being.

In addition to her work as a somatic psychotherapist, Arielle serves as a plant medicine macro-dose and integration consultant and assists individuals in the preparation and integration of their plant medicine journeys. Her approach is rooted in respectfully maintaining the original Indigenous teachings and rituals of plant medicine ceremony that have been practiced for centuries.

Arielle’s rich tapestry of healing experiences and knowledge is at the heart of her mission to facilitate individual, ancestral, and collective healing through work done at Sacred Space.
