    My goal for therapy is to help people manage behavior effectively and reach a more fulfilling way of life. I believe that any one aspect of the self does not define who we are as a whole person and I think people can learn to take control over problematic life events given the proper support, insight, and knowledge. I encourage my clients to be actively involved in the therapy process and will work to meet the unique goals that each individual brings to the table.

    I have a personal style of counseling that embraces both psychodynamic and behavioral approaches. This style of therapy values learning about how unconscious forces, childhood patterns, and cultural myths influence and support our daily individual behavior. As we explore these unconscious forces, we can gain greater clarity about our life goals and increase the efficiency level of our actions.

    I have worked in the field of mental health with individuals from a variety of life backgrounds and social circumstances. I hold a Master's degree in counseling from Lewis and Clark College in Portland, Oregon and a Bachelor's of Science in psychology from Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff, Arizona. I have additional training and certification in working with individuals experiencing problem gambling.

    The standard cost is $70 per session. Substantial sliding scale (reduced fee) options are available with the intention of making access to high-quality counseling services available to all.

    I am happy to offer a brief introductory consultation by phone or in person at no cost. Please call or email me to schedule an appointment: 505-715-0992 or Email: AaronFordCounseling@live.com
