About me

I believe in helping people, not managing diagnostic labels. Therefore, I provide counseling for people struggling with various life transitions. Sometimes these transitions take the form of the end of a relationship (e.g. divorce or death), navigating a new stage in life (i.e. retirement, unemployment, going to college, getting or starting a new job, etc.) or grappling with an unexpected stressor. I love helping people develop real solutions to overcoming adversity in their lives.

I believe people can use adversity to grow stronger emotionally and encourage my clients to look at their difficult circumstances in a new way. My goal is to help all my clients grow more resilient, no matter their life circumstances. What do you need help with in your life?

Written on Nov 17, 2022 after therapy with Aaron for 3 years and 11 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, and coping with life changes

Aaron actively listens to my concerns and seems to be able to give me clarity of my situation in a knowledgable, empathetic way. Today's session really helped me deal with a couple of present time concerns dealing with Mourning and personal choices I made that were bothering me. I am very happy to have him as a therapist.

Written on Oct 27, 2022 after therapy with Aaron for 9 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, grief, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, anger management, and coping with life changes

He is absolutely the best therapist I’ve ever seen. Not only will he listen and help offer suggestions and support, but he’s extremely knowledgeable on my issue as well as a host of others. I’m very grateful to have found him and gotten his help at a time I really needed help. I look forward to our sessions and I hope to continue to work with him well into the future (as he’s that good). A pure 11/10, A +++++

Written on Jul 12, 2022 after therapy with Aaron for 4 months on issues concerning self esteem, career difficulties, and coaching

I came to Aaron at a time when I was really struggling with my professional and personal life. I needed help building confidence and building boundaries. He systematically worked with me to do that. Aaron is just a really wonderful listener and he isn't afraid to be honest in his feedback and to provide actual steps you can take to improve yourself. I really recommend him if you are in need.

Written on Oct 05, 2021 after therapy with Aaron for 3 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, grief, intimacy-related issues, eating disorders, self esteem, career difficulties, coping with life changes, coaching, and compassion fatigue

Aaron has been professional but approachable, compassionate and non-judgemental. He is a wonderful balance of support and challenge. I already have positive changes and outcomes showing in my life, and I am fairly new in my journey. I asked Aaron if this would really help me and he said in his experience if a person is willing to put in the time and effort, he has seen positive healthy changes. I believe him. I’m looking forward to seeing more good in my life with his time and assistance coupled to my time and effort.

Written on Mar 08, 2021 after therapy with Aaron for 6 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, self esteem, coping with life changes, coaching, and adhd

Aaron is an amazing counselor. Honestly, I’ve had multiple counselors, therapists, psychiatrists in my life and Aaron was one of two that actually made a difference for me. His focus on resiliency and action or behavior oriented treatment was incredible helpful for me. His thought provoking questions (which always stumped me) were questions I had never been asked. But honestly were questions that helped me think about how I want to live my life. I am forever grateful to have worked with him and appreciate all the skills he helped me with and issues we talked through.

Aaron does an amazing job of not only getting myself out of Cognitive Distortions but giving me the tools to confront them in everyday life. He keeps you engaged with exercises that make you think deep and well into the sources of these thoughts and how to reason through them in a supportive manner. It's only been a few weeks, but I've noticed a increased confidence in myself.

Aaron is great. He can talk about anything in no particular order. He's ready to go wherever I take the conversation. For me, he always seemed to have the right thing to say. And what he would say to me was realistic, future thinking, and relevant. I wish I could call him every day.

I'm so glad that i found the courage to find help and by doing this finding a site where I feel extremely comfortable with sharing how I feel.
