Some of my specialties include: depression, anxiety, video game addiction, ADHD, faith and spirituality, and gender dysphoria .
You feel disconnected and unhappy. You’ve lost interest in things you once enjoyed and spend a lot of time on your phone or computer to distract you from the stress in your life. You have goals and dreams that you’d like to pursue but fear of failure and procrastination leave you feeling paralyzed. It’s hard to imagine a bright future or things changing, but you haven’t given up yet. You want to have a clear path forward so you can find enjoyment and meaning in your work, relationships, and hobbies.

You don't have to figure out life's challenges alone, whether you are want to grow resiliency, have healthier relations, tired of surviving and wanting to thrive or struggling with fears, heartbreak and chronic pain. With my compassionate approach, I will collaborate gently, listen deeply and work efficiently with you to rebuild trust with your own innate wisdom, your capacity to meaningfully connect with yourself and in doing so, deepen connection with others. It's possible to transform difficult emotions into inner sites of freedom. I integrate mindfulness, trauma informed and social justice approaches.

Hi I'm Aaron. I have experience in the helping and therapeutic fields for almost 20-years. I believe in bringing my authentic self to my practice and relationships with others. I have recently opened a full time practice on Commercial Drive. Throughout my work I have met people who have struggled with many different problems. I believe my job is not to fix problems (or you!), but to assist you in unravel the effects of the problem on your life. My approach is centred in a queer, gender affirming, anti-oppressive, and socially just framework.

Clinical Social Work/Therapist, MSW, RSW
Verified
I approach counselling from a lens that is grounded in the continued practice of anti-racism, disability justice, queer theory, sex positivity, and that recognizes the systemic violence that has, and continues to, harm us and impact our experiences in the world, and inside ourselves. The main niche of folks that I have had the honour of working with over the years have been queer and trans folks, sex workers, disabled folks, non-traditional relationship networks, kink and bdsm communities, BIPOC folks, folks navigating complex trauma, and those living at the intersections of many of these identities.

I specialize in counselling for queer, trans, genderdiverse, and neurodivergent people. I work with individuals, couples, poly folks, and families from the perspectives of social justice and attachment - I believes that the social environment we grew up in, and our relationship histories within those environments, shape how we show up in our present. I pay special attention to how power functions in our relationships and communities, and how it impacts our internal experiences. I am kink and poly affirming, and excited to work with people with all kinds of relationship structures.

Are you different? So am I. I specialize in working with people who break the mold. This includes neuro-diverse adults (ADHD, Autistic, C-PTSD), chronically ill, 2SLGBTQ, and racialized people. Focusing on resiliency and emotional intelligence, I use evidence-based practices and creative interventions to use the wounds of the past as seeds for growth. Adverse childhood experiences, trauma, and relationship fractures disrupt our feelings of safety and trust. In order to thrive, we need to heal.

Traumatic events from childhood to adulthood along with unprocessed grief can lead to a variety of difficult feelings and experiences. Transitions in life can also be challenging or triggering, such as leaving the foster care system, transitioning, or coming out. If you are looking for support to strengthen your tools and/or develop new ones and unpack the ways in which we survive and cope with trauma, I would be happy to walk this journey with you.

I am also able to offer a truly holistic therapy, combining talk therapy, mindfulness, and movement. I am a good fit for those impacted by marginalization, those with shame and self-esteem challenges, those impacted by trauma and addiction, and for couples.
