My name is Ariel Butler and I graduated from Christopher Newport University in 2016 with a Bachelors degree in Psychology. I am currently receiving my Masters degree from North Carolina State University in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. After I graduate, I plan to pursue licensure and hopefully own a private practice or non profit organization.


Besides interning with Health in Mind, I am also working as a 1:1 Behavioral Counselor in the Chesterfield County Public Schools. Although I have worked mostly with children for the last 8 years I am looking forward to working with adults, groups, couples and families. I am interested in utilizing Cognitive Behavioral Therapy as well as Person Centered therapy with a strengths based perspective. I think every client deserves to have a safe space where they are able to feel empowered, achieve their goals, and become the best version of themselves. I am looking forward to working with the future clients of Health in Mind.
