About me


My name is Dr. Aja King, LPCC and I am a seasoned licensed professional with over two decades of experience who currently resides in Minnesota, I am deeply committed to guiding individuals through a spectrum of challenges including addiction, relationship issues, trauma, and struggles with self-esteem. Central to my approach is creating a nurturing and non-judgmental space where clients feel empowered to express their thoughts and emotions freely.

My academic journey led me to earn a doctorate from Argosy University in Counseling Psychology, with a research focus on professional identity development and workplace bullying. This research not only shed light on the impact of workplace aggression on individuals' self-esteem and professional roles but also underscored the crucial link between job satisfaction and interpersonal relationships. I firmly believe in nurturing healthy relationships as they are vital components of our existence and deserve dedicated attention to thrive.

Throughout my extensive career, I have navigated various settings including geriatrics, child protective services, substance abuse, and corporate wellness, addressing diverse issues such as end-of-life decisions, career transitions, family dynamics, and mental health concerns like PTSD, anxiety, and depression.

I view seeking therapy as a courageous step towards a more fulfilling life, and I am dedicated to supporting clients on this transformative journey. To augment my practice, I have invested in professional development aimed at enhancing clients' understanding of the mind-body connection. Integrating mindfulness and meditation techniques into therapy sessions has proven invaluable in promoting holistic wellness. I have also authored "Finding My Cool," a children's book available on Amazon, which introduces meditation to young readers, inspired by my own children's experiences.

In addition to traditional therapeutic approaches, I offer complementary holistic modalities including Healing Touch Therapy, Reiki, and Music Meditation Coaching, recognizing the importance of addressing the interconnected aspects of mind, body, and spirit in the healing process.

I design retreat and spa experiences tailored for families, communities, and organizations, offering a sanctuary for relaxation, rejuvenation, and renewal. These bespoke services provide a tranquil space for individuals to unwind, recharge, and reconnect with themselves and others. Whether it's a family getaway, a community event, or a corporate retreat, my offerings cater to the unique needs of each group, fostering a serene environment where guests can exhale deeply and find inner peace. Through curated experiences, I aim to inspire moments of tranquility and serenity, leaving guests feeling refreshed and revitalized. Visit my website for more details

My mission is to provide tailored and comprehensive support to meet each client's unique needs, and I am here to guide and empower you on your journey towards personal growth and well-being.

I had a couple of sessions with Aja, and honestly, I loved it. I felt heard and understood. This was my first time EVER trying therapy, and I would 100% confidently say I would recommend anyone to Aja. Thank you so much, Aja <3

Aja King has been delightful to talk to, listening well and asking questions that cause me to reflect in ways I've normally neglected to.

I absolutely love Aja! I was always nervous to start therapy, I didn’t want to feel judged or ashamed because of my anxiety. From our first session I felt accepted and not ashamed! She has made me feel welcomed and loved. I have hope in overcoming my anxiety thanks to her.
