Aaron’s educational background includes a BA in Psychology from Wayne State University, where he engaged in research on various mental health issues including ADHD and smoking habits. Additionally, Aaron earned his Master of Social Work from the University of Michigan, where he specialized in Interpersonal Practice in Integrated Health, Mental Health, and Substance Abuse.
Aaron’s clinical work includes psychotherapy with adolescents and adults, and extensive training in multiple interventions including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and Motivational Interviewing.
While Aaron works skillfully with clients across the lifespan, he specializes in helping pre-teens, teens, and young adults manage those difficult transitions and challenging relationships that can take them off course and negatively impact their potential. Anxiety, depression, and social isolation are on the rise, and teens and young adults have been particularly vulnerable in our high-pressure, reshaped world. Aaron approaches his work with grace and cultural humility, thoughtfully drawing from his background in behavioral research, and comes from a person-centered, strengths-based orientation. He works to capitalize on each client’s inherent tools and abilities, and aids the client in finding the strength and self-awareness to affect true change.
In Aaron’s personal life he enjoys spending time with family and friends, playing basketball and playing triple word scores in scrabble.
