Self-Care Is How You Take Your POWER Back.

 

“Identifying what you need to feel your best and practicing it daily is the ultimate goal in living well. Self Care isn’t just treating yourself to something fun or luxurious. It is to show up for yourself in every way, even if it means saying no to something.”

Ariel Cahn-Flores

 

COUNSELING / PSYCHOTHERAPY

In psychotherapy/counseling you explore your thoughts, feelings, strengthen relationships, identify patterns/triggers, and understand the root of your emotional pain, so you can make the changes in your life that will bring you peace and greater levels of satisfaction. Within therapy sessions you will work to heal and restore. You will learn how the body and mind are connected and that emotional stress can be hidden in body symptoms, and expressed physically. I am on the journey with you, as we navigate these situations and transitions to help improve your functioning, develop more emotional flexibility, self love and self learning, and live life with more meaning.

I provide counseling/psychotherapy services to children (10-18) and adults of Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine. I am trained in evidence based counseling methods including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), trauma and attachment neuroscience and theory, internal family systems theory, acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) and mindfulness-based therapy.

I am also recently certified in Brainspotting (BSP), an advanced mind body therapy that can be used with adults and children to identify, process and release trauma, pain, emotional stress and a range of other psychological and somatic issues. This interpersonal neurobiological technique works deeply with the neural pathways of the brain to facilitate self- healing in a collaborative attunement process with the therapist. By picking a spot to hold our vision while bringing our attention to a situation that may be activating stress, fear, or worry within us, the therapist follows the client through any thoughts, sensations, memories, or feelings that come up. And in this way, Brainspotting reaches parts of the brain that are not generally accessed through traditional talk therapy approaches.

My office is located in White River Junction, Vermont. For clients who can not make it to my office in person, I also offer online counseling and psychotherapy for adult Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine residents. In our first sessions, we will explore your needs around therapy and I can share how I think my training and approach might be helpful for your situation. I am also a provider for the app TRUSST.

COACHING

I offer a variety of coaching services for clients interested in self improvement, wellness, performance enhancement, and parenting.  Coaching is a collaborative and transformative process focused on a particular outcome and for anyone looking to make positive changes in their life. Coaching is different from counseling/psychotherapy, as the focus is on reaching identified goals, such as enhanced performance, personal and professional satisfaction, rather than working on healing or emotional growth.  We will establish meaningful priorities, set specific measurable goals, develop an individualized action plan, and help you move forward to success. Along the way, we will identify and work through the barriers that may arise and help you move forward. Supporting you in your goals with non judgement and compassion, I will help keep you accountable, as you take action and create change in your life.

Please note, that while I can offer psychotherapy/counseling for Vermont and New Hampshire residents as a licensed clinician, I will refer out to another mental health professional for my coaching clients that need additional mental health support.  Coaching is not psychotherapy and is not covered by insurance. Our initial consultation will be an opportunity to determine whether coaching or therapy is right for you.

“When I first started working with Ariel I was in a really bad place. I had worked with other therapists and it didn’t work. I was sure it wasn’t going to work again. I was wrong. Ariel had a way of connecting and understanding me, almost like she was going through the same thing. Ariel helped me find the courage within myself to keep working towards my happiness.”

MH

“My husband and I had tried everything to help our daughter. We had reached the end of our rope with patience and ideas. Ariel started working with her and within weeks we noticed a change. Ariel gave our daughter the tools and coping skills she needed to succeed and help overcome her anxiety. Having her work with Ariel paved the way for M to be successful and more outgoing.”
