I am an individual counselor licensed in Michigan with nearly 10 years of experience as an individual and group therapist. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, OCD, self-esteem, and life transitions. I also specialize in anger management and emotional regulation.
My counseling style is compassionate and collaborative. I treat all my patients with the respect and professionalism I would want for a family member. I primarily utilize mindfulness-based, cognitive-behavioral, and relational-frame techniques and am experienced in other modalities as well. I meet patients where they are and customize treatment to meet your self-identified needs.
You deserve credit for taking an important step toward improving your life. I look forward to being there to help you along the way!

My counselor gives me feed back. He points out what I have not thought of. He gives me a lot to ponder and to work on- exactly what I need.
Aaron George is a highly skilled, compassionate practitioner who effectively uses the cognitive/behavioral approach to counseling. I initially went to Aaron suffering from depression and anxiety that came about from the convergence of several issues related to my physical and mental health. I worked with Aaron for eight or so months with weekly online sessions. Aaron listened carefully and provided a consistent structure in which to pose and address problems that arose for me. He took meticulous notes during every session, which he would summarize at the start of each subsequent appointment to bridge from the previous one. Over the time working together, Aaron gave me useful insights and concrete practical tools for managing my anxiety level and navigating relationships based on my values and realistic expectations. Aaron was always encouraging and posed productive questions, while keeping a calm, focused, and pleasant demeanor. I recently concluded my work with Aaron and largely due to his support am in a much better place. I highly recommend him!
I worked with Aaron for almost a year regarding anxiety issues.
He has helped me so much throughout this time that I now feel confident to continue on my own.
Aaron is very knowledgable and gave me ways to improve my mindset through practices during the week. Some I was familiar with and some I was not, but through my time talking to Aaron weekly and doing the work my outlook has improved and I feel much more in control/awareness of my mind and emotions.
Aaron is a good counselor
I have now met with Aaron 3 times. He has been extremely focused on what I would like to talk about. Guiding me and encouraging me every step of the way. I love that he is flexible, as I am home with my children and getting out of the house to see a therapist just isn't in the cards right now. I am so happy to have been matched up with Aaron.
Aaron is a wonderful counselor! I walked away from our sessions with a better understanding of myself as well as helpful activities to continue the work on my own. Aaron does a great job of bridging each session so that every time we met, we could remember the work that we had done previously and look forward to the future more intentionally. It is just the kind of structure that I needed to make sense of difficult feelings/experiences and start building the kind of life I want for myself. And, of course, his ability to validate his clients' experiences, his professional knowledge of psychology, and spot-on metaphors were a huge part of feeling comfortable with Aaron. Would highly recommend!
Aaron is a really great listener. He creates a really calm and safe environment in which to discuss any issues you may have and suggests very practical exercises to help you work through anxiety and stress. I've only worked with Aaron for a few sessions but I'm already feeling much more confident in myself and glad that I made the choice to go into therapy.
Thoughtful and helpful. I can feel myself improving and it’s through Aaron’s support and expertise.
Although I have only just started, Aaron has been great so far and has been helping me a lot in managing my anxiety. Even now I am already noticing changes in my ability to talk to people and my ability to be comfortable around others.
Aaron helped me understand how I should filter my thoughts and deal with anxiety. Very grateful.
Aaron has been very attentive and understanding during my sessions and has helped me understand myself by creating a non-judgmental environment for me to talk freely.
I am very thankful for Aaron. I have never been to counseling before. Aaron put me at ease from the first session and has been able to help me get to the heart of the issues I'm facing right now. He's given me some real tools to help me start battling some life-long issues. I am very thankful for him. I am also thankful for the Better Help platform. I'm not sure if I ever would have actually followed through on my promise to seek out counseling if it hadn't been for the BetterHelp's seamless process of matching me up with Aaron. Overall, I am so thankful for both my counselor and for BetterHelp.
Aaron is understanding, caring and compassionate. He has helped me to learn new coping mechanisms that help with letting go of my anxiety, depression and addiction. He is skilled in leading you through problems, asking the right questions to allow you to see the possibility of positive outcomes and to stay grounded in reality. His relaxed methodical approach allows you to reach your own conclusions through the use of easy to follow problem solving techniques and mindfulness based meditation. Thank you Aaron.
Aaron has really helped me with managing my negative thought patterns and difficult emotions. I really appreciate that his approach focuses on moving forward and taking action without staying stuck on dissecting the past. In the months I've seen Aaron as a therapist, I've noticed a huge improvement in my overall mental health. He quickly understood what was working for me, and catered our sessions to my personality, interests and preferred style. I would highly recommend him to anyone dealing with anxiety, panic, depression, hopelessness, low self esteem and/or difficult life changes!
Aaron George from my experience so far in the short time I have been in contact with him is professional, to the point and focused on dealing with one issue at a time ( which I find works a lot better for recovery been as I tend to bring up a lot all at once sometimes) but he knows when to say ''take a step back, let's deal with this first'' and it's extremely helpful. Unlike other people i've spoke to he isn't trying to get you to tell him everything at once, he takes things one at a time and provides the essential support needed for each topic you tell him. This is why I will continue working with Aaron as I feel I have found someone with a great treatment style that suits me.
I have had many counselors in my life because I believe in the job they provide. Aaron George is extremely knowledgeable and committed to his approach, and has helped me tremendously to recognize certain areas I need to work on such as patience, support, and encouragement. Aaron is the type of counselor I would continue to go back to when needed because he doesn't just sweep the dirt under the rug, he gets rid of the dirt.
I feel truly blessed to have found him!
