I specialize in shifting school cultures and environments with the use of mindfulness. By looking at the various school stakeholders: administration, staff, students and the parent communities I work to weave mindfulness into the daily rhythms of the school, integrating the practice into the foundation of all school communications and actions.


In her professional role as a school counselor, Ariel Frager has, at current count, taught over 2000 students the Mindful Schools curriculum. Ariel firmly believes that every tool young people need to navigate the emotional storms of childhood and adolescence can be taught through the practice of mindfulness.

Ariel is a Licensed Professional Counselor, a Licensed School Counselor and a Registered Art Therapist. The combination of training and background, coupled with years of personal mindfulness practice helps Ariel create a space for children to learn how to regulate their emotions to be ready to participate in the classroom.

Whenever possible Ariel travels the world and is forging a secondary career as a travel writer. Ariel lives in Portland, Oregon with her family.
