“I wholeheartedly believe that couples can not only overcome challenges they’re facing, but that through counseling they can come out stronger as a couple with a healthier, more vibrant relationship than they ever had”
About Aaron Anderson
I have extensive training and experience in marriage counseling. I received a Masters degree in Marriage and Family Therapy and did doctoral studies in Family Science. None of the other mental health disciplines require nearly as much training in couple and family related issues. As a result of this rigorous training and experience you can rest assured that you are getting the specialized care for your marriage that you need.
I’m not only educated in Marriage counseling, but I am thoroughly involved with many aspects of marriage counseling professionally and in the community. I’m an affiliate faculty at Regis University in the Rueckert-Hartman College for Health Professions in the Department of Counseling and Family Therapy. In this position, I’m able to keep up with the latest research and methods in couples therapy and thoroughly enjoy teaching upcoming graduates how to be great couples counselors.
In addition to my affiliate faculty position, I’m also a Clinical Fellow of The American Association of Marriage and Family Therapists and a past Board of Directors member of the Colorado Association of Marriage and Family Therapists, Nebraska Association of Marriage and Family Therapists, and Utah Conference on Family Relations.
Finally, I am a regular writer for various marriage counseling blogs and websites including MarriageAdvice.com, Famifi.com and I was the editor of the Marriage section for The Good Men Project. I have been featured on various radio shows, news shows and on several blogs and websites.
As you can see, I am thoroughly involved in the profession and practice of couples counseling. All this assures you that you are getting the best treatment you can get for your relationship and that you are giving your relationship the best chance to succeed.
What is Therapy Like?
My therapy is pretty down to earth. We get right to the point to help you get the results you want to get. I help you and your spouse explore the unspoken rules that have directed your relationship thus far and the ones that are causing you problems. You will get a better understanding of the deeper, more core emotions and beliefs that you are stumbling with and help you co-create new ones with your partner that will make your relationship feel fulfilling and rewarding. We then work on helping you and your spouse find new emotional fulfillment that will make your relationship feel better than before. I help you two to create new goals together as a couple that are exciting, vibrant and passionate.
If you’re seeing me for infidelity, we get right to work rebuilding trust first and foremost. We get to the bottom of why the affair happened and we get to work helping you two rebuild your relationship. There was a reason the affair happened. You can’t look back to the old relationship because there were pieces of it that made your relationship vulnerable to an affair. I help you build a new relationship and leave those vulnerabilities behind. It’s not easy, but it’s worth it.
What do you do when you’re not doing therapy?
I’m an avid father of three children. I love exploring the many beautiful things the world has to offer and sharing them with my little family. This usually includes going to new restaurants with unique menus, going to small town festivals, and exploring new sites. And when I want to take a break you’ll find me with a wrench under the hood of my hotrod or wasting my brain watching a scary movie.
