AARON

About Aaron:

I was born here on the west coast and grew up in Squamish, a small town located on the un-ceded ancestral territory of the Squamish nation. I grew up playing in forests at the feet of mountains, in a place where many people knew my name. 

After high school I pursued a passion for music and relocated to Winnipeg to complete a bachelor of Music with a major in education. During my summer breaks, I discovered a new passion in the field of community support work. After graduation, I started my first full time job working to support the goals and dreams of adults with developmental disabilities. My work allowed me to gain experience in disability, person-centred care, autism, customization, case management, community engagement, employment, and diverse ways of connecting with people.   

Following my passion for working in a person-centered way, I decided to pursue a master’s degree in counselling psychology. During my time learning in Vancouver, I found my place amongst amazing teachers and colleagues, all while learning about the history and power of talk therapy, and other therapies.  

Close to the completion of my degree, I began working for an energetic and avant-garde health organization called HIM (Health initiative for Men). As the program manager of mental health programs, I have the opportunity to contribute to my own community while participating in conversations about health and well-being. In my role, I get the chance to: support individuals and groups; advocate for mental health supports; contribute to research designed to advance knowledge and improve health; and learn from the collective wisdom of my community. 

After receiving my master of counselling I started developing my own practice and I continually look for opportunities to learn more. I completed a 5-day certification in Narrative Therapy and participate in a monthly process group with other counsellors where we help each other to be the best helpers we can be.  

I enjoy spending time with my friends and family. I sing in a radical queer choir (corflammae.com), and enjoy travelling, doing art, and learning new things. I practice yoga and do my best to take care of my self and my circle. 

I have been through my own struggles and have learned that in the most difficult times, having support has gotten me through. In my practice, I work to be a supportive witness to the stories presented to me. I work hard to listen deeply because I believe that within the story is the recipe for healing, growth and imagination.
