Ariel Gagne

I feel every individual is a unique and complex being, therefore, I approach counseling with this in mind. I believe vulnerability is a precious gift that can foster a trusting working relationship between counselor and client. This collaborative approach can facilitate growth, insight, and healing.

My passion is working with young children who have experienced trauma, specifically child abuse and traumatic grief. I believe death is a part of life and we all grieve differently. I have provided counseling services for young children and adolescents, as well as caregivers and young adults.

I have worked with trauma, anxiety, depression, adjustment issues, grief, family-dynamics issues, and attachment wounds. I have a passion in attachment-based therapy between child and caregiver. I have also found a passion working with the LGBTQ+ community, specifically teenagers and young adults in the process of finding their sexual identity.

I have experience utilizing Trauma Focused – Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), Attachment-Based Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Directive Sand Tray Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy, Somatic Therapy, Task-Centered (TC) model, and Child and Family Traumatic Stress Intervention (CFTSI) Therapy.

I would be honored to accompany you on your journey to healing and growth.
