Ariel Butler recently moved to the Raleigh area from Richmond, Virginia. She received her Master’s degree from North Carolina State University in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. Over the last 8 years, she has worked mostly with children in educational settings, but is looking forward to providing counseling services to adolescence, adults, groups, and couples.
Ariel utilizes evidence-based approaches such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Person-Centered Therapy with a strengths-based perspective, and mindfulness practices. While providing counseling, she will be under the clinical supervision of Elizabeth Grady, LCMHCS.
Specialties: She is passionate about and specializes in working with clients experiencing anxiety, depression, stress, low self-esteem, anger management, behavioral issues, school/career issues, coping skills, life transitions, relationship issues, and sexual assault survivors. Ariel is committed to providing culturally competent work and is an advocate for the LGBTQIA+ community.
Ariel knows life can be stressful, overwhelming, and challenging. She believes we are all capable of positive change and becoming the best version of ourselves. She knows every client deserves to have a safe, empathetic, and non-judgmental space where they are able to feel empowered & achieve their goals. Ariel is very excited to be part of such a dynamic and talented group of professionals at Lifeologie Counseling!
When Ariel is not providing counseling for her clients she enjoys spending time outdoors hiking, kayaking, traveling, reading, exercising, and spending time with friends and family.
