Arielle Sokoll-Ward, LCSW-S, CCTP-II, (she/her/hers) finds it to be most rewarding working directly with clients in a warm, comfortable, and non-judgmental environment. Arielle likes to provide a space where clients feel comfortable processing difficult emotions so they can leave the session feeling a greater sense of resilience, confidence, and happiness. Arielle is here to listen, hold space, and process with you as you tell your story.
As a grief and trauma therapist trained in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) and a Level II Certified Clinical Trauma Professional, Arielle knows that processing our past can be an intimidating and vulnerable experience. Foundationally, coming from a relational approach, she is here to tell you that you are not in this alone and she will meet you where you are in your journey. Arielle graduated from the University of Maryland, Baltimore, and has years of experience working with an array of populations. She has been professionally speaking since 2014 and a 2019 TEDx speaker on finding resilience within grief. Arielle is the author of the new book, Adding the E: Perspectives of Grief Through Recounts, Letters, and Poetry.
In this episode your host Laurel Sims-Stewart and Arielle Sokoll-Ward discuss grief, trauma, and using a relational model in clinical practice. Arielle shares about the path that led her to grief and trauma work, and we talk together about how the bodymind processes trauma, modeling humanity as a therapist, self-disclosure for building rapport as part of a relational model in treating trauma, and more! Arielle also shares about her experience writing her newly published book, “Adding the E: Perspectives of Grief Through Recounts, Letters, and Poetry.”
