About Me

Life on the planet is stressful, and we don’t always feel like we have the energy to face it. The fact is that you do continue to face it, an that's an accomplishment. You have the skills you need to achieve your goals. Often, we aren’t conscious of what causes us stress nor are we aware of the memories that we hold physically. My strength in the field of mental health is in helping you to get,“in the know.” So often in life, we become experts at anything and everything except ourselves. We will identify your goals, and then we will develop the plan to achieve them.
I have over 15 years of experience working with people of all ages, races, and social classes. I have worked in the clinical setting, in the community, in K-12 education, at secure facilities, and in residential programs. I have been told that I have an old soul, let's discuss your concerns. I specialize in helping people maximize life.
Seeking support for your mental health is an excellent step towards showing yourself some love. At Distinctive Nature LLC, we address trauma, addiction, depression, social anxiety, and many other issues that people face in today's fast-paced world. In providing therapy, the needs of the client determine our therapeutic approach.

Making the decision to get therapy was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. And finding Aaron was perfect. He knows how to relate to me and put things in perspective for me to understand.

First time going for therapy and it is life changing. Couldn’t have asked for a better person than Aaron. The advice and the way it’s communicated is easy to understand and comfortable. He is professional and also knows how to relate on a personal level. Very thankful for all the great advice and to have someone like him to talk to. Looking forward to working more with him and growing more as a person

Aaron has created a safe place for me to express my feelings and deepen my understanding of my own emotions in a real way. He’s wise and has a unique way of helping me understand things in a way that I haven’t thought of before.

Aaron is an excellent councillor and a wonderful person. His insights into life, through education combined with his lived experience, truly make him unique and the advice and guidance he provides is always great, practical and useful. I would strongly recommend Aaron as a councillor.

Aaron's pretty awesome. He was able to melt away my mental knots/issues really quickly which blew my mind. He gave a lot of examples which helped guide my mind and helped me ask more questions. I'm not good with awkward silence and he definitely made the space very comfortable for me. I would for sure request Aaron again. :D

Written by I.B. on May 21, 2021 after counseling with Aaron for 3 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, and self esteem

I've spoken with Aaron only 3 times, and this is my first type of therapy/counselling ever, and I have to say the experience has definitely been great. I was hesitant doing teletherapy or anything virtual because I thought I wouldn't be able to really get the most out of it, but Aaron made things feel really comfortable & almost like we knew each other for much longer than we do.

He's great at finding ways to relate to you & really empathize with what's going on, but also tell you what needs to be worked on at the same time - which I'm really fond of.

Thanks Aaron!

Aaron has been fantastic these past few months! He’s really easy to talk to and has helped me develop better perspectives on life. His advice and analogies have made a difference

Written by G.R. on Apr 22, 2021 after counseling with Aaron for 2 weeks on issues concerning relationship issues, and family conflicts

Aaron is an amazing listener and he always delivers constructive feedback. I've had a couple of sessions with him and I felt instant connection from the start as he has his way on how to make you feel comfortable and open up about certain issues. He has very impressive attention to detail and remembers everything which was shared during the previous sessions, this definitely helped me out with putting the puzzle together. If you are looking for a great listener and modern problem solver Aaron is just perfect for that! :)

He is very nice and allows me to go at my own pace when it comes to talking about my situation. At first I was hoping for a therapist that is also part of the LGBT community and preferably a woman, however after a few sessions i feel quite comfortable talking to him

He offers thought provoking questions as well as creating a "safe space" for you to share your thoughts and feelings, knowing you won't be judged or criticized.

I have o it had 2-3 seasons with Aaron but already he is uncovering things in my journey and helping me . His approach is very positive and not aggressive. He will tell you when you are wrong but he will follow it with a way to help you change that. Great counselor!

Aaron is exactly why I chose an African American male counselor. He understands cultural reference points that do not make me feel as if I have to be overly explain them. He's great!
