I am an active therapist in that I ask questions and offer consistent feedback to guide the session's focus. I utilize an integrative style - applying a variety of approaches to best meet the needs of each client/couple and their concerns. It is my belief that the counseling process is one in which all parties are actively involved. I recognize the need for flexibility and creativity to address the mind and body. My approach focuses identifying physical cues, recognizing thoughts, considering consequences, implementing solutions, choosing behaviors, and promoting expression.I believe that therapy is a proven, effective way to help people overcome emotional problems. I find satisfaction in being able to guide clients on their journey as they navigate obstacles and endure struggle, only to come out healthier and more confident. All humans struggle with their feelings and its a sign of strength and intelligence to know when to seek support. Any professional who has useful skills and the right tools, is an asset, not a liability.

Bio
Aaron's approach to anger management focuses on increasing frustration tolerance and impulse control by understanding triggers, identifying physical cues, recognizing thoughts, considering consequences, implementing solutions, choosing behaviors, and promoting expression. Aaron believes that when individuals feel in control of their situations and their lives, their depression and anxiety are replaced with feelings of security, confidence, competence, identity, responsibility, belonging, and self-respect, which are prerequisites for success at home and at work.
