Ariell is an eclectic therapist that combines emotion-focused strategies with psychotherapeutic evidence-based approaches. The underlying principles in her approach are that treating anxiety, depression, relationship dysfunction, self-esteem and more can be traced to experiences, beliefs of shame, and other negative core beliefs in an individual. Finding out these aspects of a person’s life, naming them, and working through them are components of her counseling process.
Ariell believes in providing holistic therapy, helping clients discover their multiple inner strengths to live a wholly present, healthy life. She works to cultivate an environment of unconditional positive regard to facilitate inner peace and healing for her clients.
Ariell also has a certification in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to treat Insomnia. If you are struggling with sleep issues please contact Ariell to set up an appointment. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia is an evidence-based approach that works well as the first line of treatment for sleep issues. CBT-I treats insomnia without the use of medication and helps manage chronic sleep issues. CBT-I involves meeting weekly with a counselor that specializes in CBT-I. In these sessions the clinician will give you a series of sleep assessments, do a sleep diary, and come up with a treatment plan to change the way you sleep.
Ariell is currently providing counseling to adolescents and adults of all ages and is comfortable providing counseling to individuals of all varying faiths and backgrounds. She is currently accepting new clients at Thriveworks Round Rock.
