Hi I’m Aaron,
The short version...
I'm a psychologist, and coach in Brentwood, California. I help individuals and couples with their marriages/relationships, work, feelings of anxiety, depression, and getting the life they want. I believe you are the creator of your future, and not the victim of your past. My counseling and coaching approach is solution-focused, and pragmatic.
The less short version...
As a professional psychologist in Brentwood, California, with over 17 years of experience, I can appreciate the position you’re in. The search for a therapist can be exciting. It can also feel a little intimidating. But it doesn’t have to be.
I’ve worked with people as they’ve faced some of the greatest challenges in their lives. In the process, I’ve come to one important realization: the key to effective therapy is your comfort. When you feel comfortable in therapy, you can gain the ability to bring real change into your life.
That’s why I strive to create an environment of mutual respect and ease, a space where we can have honest, meaningful conversations. I commit myself to helping you discover and achieve your goals. I don’t “treat patients” or deal with “disorders." I communicate with people.
The power to decide belongs to you. You get to choose who you’ll work with, and how long they’ll be a part of your life. Your comfort should always be at the heart of those decisions. That’s a fact I recognize, and value above all others. I believe the discouraged can be courageous, and the confused can see clearly, all through counseling and care. Instead of ignoring fear or negativity, I help my clients understand those feelings so they can take on life with bravery and confidence.
If you are in Brentwood, Santa Monica, or Pacific Palisades, and have any questions, or would like to set up an appointment, give me a call. And thanks for taking this first step with me. 310-948-4240
