Ms. Ariel - Guidance Counselor
Ms. Ariel is thrilled to be joining the East Cooper Montessori Charter School family where her 2 children attended school, and where her passion for School Counseling was nourished. A native New Englander, Ariel moved to Charleston in 1991 and has been working over the past years with school-aged children in both educational and counseling settings including Windwood Farm, as an Equine Assisted Psychotherapist and with the MUSC STAR Program before heading to Australia in 2012 where she was the Clinical Director and Program Manager of PAN Inc., a rural hands-on farm based counseling program for at-risk youth. Upon returning to the US Ariel took a position as a School Counselor at Wando High School since 2014. She is excited to share those experiences as she comes full circle back to East Cooper Montessori Charter School.
