My name is Aarin Mitchel. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor licensed in Arkansas and Louisiana with over 20 years of experience working with children, teenagers, young adults and families. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, trauma, parenting problems, ADHD, autism, self esteem issues, impulsive behaviors, anger and aggression, self harm behaviors and suicidal ideations. I also helped many people who have experienced domestic violence and other abuse including physical, emotional and sexual.
My therapy style is caring, open minded and interactive. I strive at being a good listener and creative thinker. I have always believed it is important to treat everyone as an individual and fairly. I aspire to do this using respect, sensitivity, and compassion, in addition to refraining from labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral therapy, including trauma focused and person center therapy.
I look forward to working with you.

Aarin is a great support to me. Talking to her weekly has given me a much stronger sense of support. She is so understanding of my struggles, listens well, and makes me think about how to get through those struggles. She is very easy to talk to and really helps me get through my weeks.

With a strong sense of empathy, Aarin is willing to work together to find the best paths forward. I appreciate her calm demeanor, friendly manner, and easy to communicate with style. She asks great questions, is willing to switch gears quickly if it's of benefit, and is a strong mental health partner. I feel very fortunate to be working with her.
