Aaron Pardieck - MA, LPC
My approach to psychotherapy is dynamic, unique, and holistic. While I incorporate an array of contemporary counseling methodologies and techniques, I add a layer of depth to my approach that is founded on the rich history of western philosophical thought and the ancient wisdom traditions of the east. I work to help my clients tap into their inner wisdom to solve problems effectively, overcome emotional pain and suffering, and attain a life full of balance, meaning, purpose, connection, and emotional wellbeing.

Although Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Mindfulness are key elements of my methodology, I offer a highly personalized approach tailored to each client. With compassion and understanding I work with individuals to help them build on strengths and maximize their full potential. I provide both individual counseling and couples counseling.
