About me

I am a licensed professional counselor with 22 years of experience across a wide range of domains - career, education, mental health, relationship/family work. I have a particular passion for helping clients to manage stress, depression, anxiety, and trauma symptoms that negatively impact their functioning in their relationships or careers.
My style is warm, supportive, and light-hearted in general, but I can be intense and emotive when helping clients process through negative experiences and feelings. I don't believe in telling clients what to do, but I do believe in collaboratively exploring problems and designing solutions together rather than spending valuable time talking about things but not doing anything about them. Your time is precious to me, so I strive to ensure that our time together is productive and helpful.
The primary modalities I use are cognitive behavior therapy, but I pull from structural and strategic family therapy concepts and techniques to help improve client relationships as well.

Working with Aimee has been great (and 100x better than my previous therapist--who I also thought was great!) She says that she is often working-from-home so whenever I reach out via message she responds quickly! Our weekly video calls are helpful and supportive--she assigns homework and follows up. She has a lovely we-can-do-this energy.

Aimee is thoughtful, helpful and sincere. I enjoy the time I get to spend working with her and she makes sure I feel heard and respected. She has given me great tools to combat my issues from the start and I'm sure in the coming weeks she will continue to add to them. I feel like with Aimee's help I will make great progress in many areas and I am happy to have gotten to work with her.
