About

I am a certified trauma professional and IFS-informed psychotherapist specializing in treating survivors of sexual violence, childhood abuse, and other forms of trauma. I also enjoy working with other LGBTQ+ folks looking for support. Many clients come to me because they are tired of struggling and need a safe place to land. My priority is ensuring you feel safe, supported, and comfortable diving into topics that might be difficult. We will go at your pace and welcome any parts of you that come up in session. I work as a guide, walking beside you on your journey and observing what is on the path and which directions we could take.
You will be the one to decide what you want, and I will be there to support your development. Together, we will work to create radical changes by using trauma-informed therapies, and identify how marginalization and social pressures may play a part in the stress you are experiencing today.
It is my goal that you leave our sessions feeling heard, understood, and prepared to take on any challenge you are facing. Please contact me if you’re ready to take the next step in your healing process. I also encourage potential clients to let me know of any accommodations they may need to make treatment more accessible.

Aaron M Free's Groups

The Lavender Circle (LGBTQ+)

Do you feel a lack of community? Does it feel like other people don't see the *real* you? Do you wish you had a group of people who accepted you for you? The Lavender Circle is an affirming space that promotes authentic connections with other local queer folks. Together, members will explore various parts of themselves and have those parts compassionately witnessed by others. The experience of seeing and being seen is an immensely healing experience that is not possible in individual therapy. It's our goal that you develop a greater sense of connection, community, and self-compassion.
