    Aaron is a LCSW with nearly a decade of experience working with adults, children, and families. He collaborates with patients on the psychiatric, social, and behavioral challenges they have identified and wish to improve upon. He also explores past experiences, both socially and during major life events, that may be contributing factors. Aaron is patient-centered and meets people where they are at in this process- assisting them in setting and achieving their goals. He provides individual and group therapies with bariatric and medical weight loss patients. He also provides initial assessments for patients, with and without previous mental health treatment or diagnosis. Aaron has extensive experience working with patients with depressive and anxiety disorders, short term and long term recovery substance abuse and addictive disorders, dual diagnosis, self-esteem issues, anger management, behavioral adjustment disorders, bipolar and schizophrenia spectrum disorders, trauma related disorders, impulse control issues, personality disorders and autism spectrum disorders.

    Aaron educates patients on the treatment models chosen and medical jargon, so the patient can comfortably understand the tools being used. Three trusted treatment approaches he specializes in include cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectal behavioral therapy (DBT), positive psychology, acceptance and commitment therapy, motivational interviewing, person-centered therapy, family systems, and Jungian psychology.
