Ariel Carson, M.AmSAT, SEP

“I believe that our body-mind-selves are always seeking healing and balance, and that if we can learn how to listen and use the maps of our emotions, sensations, and thoughts as a guide, we will be led to this healing energy every time.”

From her work with U.S. veterans, activists, performers, social workers, and the LGBTQ community, Ariel is most interested in using the Alexander Technique and Somatic Experiencing work as part of a holistic and multifaceted approach to cultivate greater sustainability, resilience, vitality, and freedom in her current and future clients.

She works with people on a wide range of issues including, but not limited to:

  • Anxiety

  • Depression

  • Fear of Failure

  • Health-Related Concerns or Chronic Illness

  • LGBTQIA-Related Stress

  • Migraines or Chronic Headaches

  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

  • Perfectionism

  • Self-Reflection

  • Trauma

If I have never been to therapy before, what should I expect? How do I know if I should go, and how do I start?

If you have any inkling that you’re not living up to your fullest potential, or if you keep finding yourself stuck in the same kinds of situations/dynamics over and over again, or even if you just want someone to share with confidentially who is not your family member, partner, friend, or co-worker, it’s worth giving therapy a try. Most people usually know after one session whether a particular therapist and how they work resonates with them or not.
