Aarin Fisher, LPC
Therapist

There comes a point in all of our lives that we could use the help of a professional when we are lacking the proper tools for success. This is also true when seeking support for your mental health. Finding a mental health provider to assist you in finding better ways to cope and manage whatever you are struggling with is a brave move and this is the first big step in your journey toward mental wholeness.

My psychodynamic approach will allow us to explore the root causes of your struggles. Through my eclectic style we will build a relationship to create treatment goals specific to you and your needs. I specialize in working with individuals affected by past trauma, teens, women’s issues, couples (both monogamous and polyamorous) and offer culturally informed treatment for Black/African Americans.

I offer a non-judgmental space to help support you on your journey to becoming the best version of yourself.
