Supervised by Mark Hundley, M.Ed., LPC-S

My name is Ariadne Pereira and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor Associate and Licensed Professional School Counselor in the state of Texas. I received my Master’s degree and completed my clinical training at Lamar University, with additional course work from Dallas Baptist University, and I have been working as a school counselor in Plano since 2013. Prior to that, I spent several years working as a clinical psychologist in Brazil, having earned my Bachelors of Science degree in Psychology from the Catholic University of Pelotas, Brazil. 

 

I am passionate about helping individuals, couples and families find healthy ways to better navigate life's challenges, so they can fulfill their full potential and find true happiness. My goal is to provide my clients with a nonjudgmental, trauma-informed, multicultural competent therapeutic environment where clients can feel accepted, understood, supported, valued, and loved. 

 

My approach to counseling includes using evidence-based therapeutic techniques designed to support clients construct solutions and finding answers for their own unique challenges while respecting their individuality and personal beliefs. Portuguese is my first language, but I am fluent in Spanish as well. I have worked with a variety of populations including children, adolescents, and adults from multiple and diverse socio-economic and cultural backgrounds. My counseling experience includes working with individuals, couples, and groups. I have taught parenting classes and provided teacher and school counseling training in many different settings, as well as served as a teacher mentor and site supervisor to school counselor interns. 
 

I believe everyone has the potential to positively contribute to creating a better world for all of us. I feel humbled and honored for the opportunity to support my client's personal growth while providing them unconditional positive regard during this process. I look forward to meeting you and getting started on your own personal journey together!
