About Aaron

 Aaron is a compassionate therapist with advanced training in multiple therapy modalities that address a wide range of behavior and its challenges including overcoming addiction and compulsiveness, resolving trauma, repairing relationships, and dealing with legal ramifications.  Aaron is committed to the use of evidenced-based treatments and naturally weaves together neuroscience, faith, creativity, and approachable media to facilitate better communication, help clients gain insight, and make changes that lead to desired growth.  In therapy, Aaron utilizes a cognitive behavioral task based approach that is also person centered, mindful, trauma informed, and considers polyvagal, attachment, family systems, and developmental theory.  He has a master’s of science in communication from Northwestern University and a master’s of arts in clinical mental health counseling from the University of the Cumberlands.  Aaron is also working on his PhD in addiction psychology at Regent University, is a Certified Sex Addiction Therapist (CSAT) candidate, and a Certified Sex Offender Treatment Provider (CSOTP).  

Aaron firmly believes in the dignity, worth, and value of all people and prioritizes relationship with his clients.  He understands that all people have made choices that are inconsistent with their values but also knows that it is possible to grow from these experiences and become who they most want to be.  Aaron considers it a great honor and privilege to walk alongside people who undertake that heroic journey.

Counseling is not an original career for Aaron.  He previously achieved a lean six sigma black belt, and formerly held roles including vice-president of corporate social responsibility, product manager, marketing executive, and not for profit administrator working for organizations including Willow Creek Community Church, Awana, Bright Hope International, and TransNational Payments.  Aaron also unashamedly describes himself as a person of faith in long-term recovery from addiction and is passionate about educating others about addiction, relationships, and life.  He is available to speak or write about his own experiences in both recovery and the treatment of addiction.
