Hi, my name is Aaron and I’m a therapist.
I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist Associate, focused on helping families and couples discover what’s going wrong in their relationships and working with them to find a better way.
Over the years I have worked with teens and their families as they navigated the juvenile justice system, dealt with divorce, recovered from trauma, struggled with depression, fought substance abuse, and other various issues. I love to work with families who are classified as “on the edge” and help guide them back to a place of stability, many times a place more stable than they have ever known before.
Maybe you are just thinking about getting married and would like some direction and preparation, or you have come to a crossroads in a current relationship and you don't know where to go. Whatever the case, my goal is to lead you to a place of health. If you are experiencing difficulty in your relationships (family, romantic, or otherwise) and you would like to talk to someone, please reach out.
I serve on the board of the Austin Association for Marriage and Family Therapy (Austin AMFT) as the go-between for graduate students in the counseling and therapy fields and those currently in the profession. I am also a member of the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy (AAMFT) and the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI).

How Therapy Can Help
Are you having trouble connecting to your kids? Wondering who that teenager is that used to be your little toddler? Does your partner seem distant? Do you fight more than you used to and are thinking about throwing in the towel?
Therapy can help you to answer these and other questions; from reconnecting with your children, discovering the person your toddler has grown into, rekindling the spark of joy in your romantic relationship, to making a fresh start together.
We will walk through these four points in order to restore your relationships and start anew as you move forward.
DISCOVER THE PROBLEM CYCLE
Whatever is going on has a beginning. In order to help stop the cycle from repeating we need to figure out what that cycle is, the ebb and flow, and every step in between.
INTERRUPT THE NEGATIVE PATTERN
- Once we know what the problem is we can then move onto ways of stopping that past pattern from determining your future. We will work on finding ways to disrupt the old methods of doing things so that you and your family can start fresh.
CREATE NEW WAYS OF INTERACTING
- Well, the fighting stopped, so what now? Now that we have helped interrupt the old unhealthy and/or unhelpful ways of interacting, we can lay the foundation for newer and better habits.
EQUIP YOU WITH THE RIGHT TOOLS
- When our sessions together draw to a close I want to leave you with the skills and abilities to manage whatever comes your way and maintain the progress that you have made.
