Hello! My name is Ariel. I'm a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Illinois with a focus on processing and improving functioning. I have my Masters in Social Work from Aurora University with a clinical specialization. I have experience in a variety of settings including: individual therapy, group facilitations, education, family therapy, and crisis intervention. I have experience in helping clients who struggle with depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, crisis situations and adjustment disorders. My goal in therapy is to focus on the immediate stressors, process through them and work together to better manage. I use an eclectic approach moving between Solution Focused Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and empowerment techniques - but the most important thing is to meet you where you are at. I'm excited and look forward to working with you!

I’ve been Ariel for a bit of time now. She’s been wonderful and I’ve definitely seen a positive change in myself. I have never felt judged by her and I truly appreciate that. I can’t recommend Ariel enough!
She’s great at what she does! I’m so glad I was matched with her. I would definitely recommend. She knows what’s she’s doing and is very responsive. She’s the best.
