Aaron Deri, Marriage & Family Therapist

If you are reading this, it’s likely that fear, stress, sadness, and self-doubt are are taking over your life.

You think way too much about things going wrong at work or school. You dwell on your own past failures. Or worse, feel sure that you are a failure. You might fear feeling panicky, helpless or sick. You find you:

  • Don’t sleep well
  • Often get angry with yourself and others
  • Close relationships are stressed
  • Use alcohol and other drugs more than you wish you did
  • Avoid people, places and things
  • Beat yourself up for being so sensitive and afraid

Your anxiety and depression make you think things will never get better. You’ve begun saying to yourself, “I’m such a mess, I have only myself to blame! What’s wrong with me?”

If any of this is true for you, please know that as of now, you are not alone.

Why I Became a Therapist

This kind of painful self-doubt, fear and self-hate both saddened me and inspired me.

I became a therapist because I saw how these difficult emotions caused suffering for individuals and relationships.  As a human being myself (!) I’ve had my share of pain, along with my friends, family and clients. As a survivor of chronic illness, a son of immigrants, a step-father, and a business person, I’ve come to see the special role emotions have in directing our lives and our relationships, especially during challenging times.

Emotion fuels our actions. For better or worse.

That’s why I’ve dedicated my professional life to helping my clients come to terms with their intense emotions, but still live a full and happy life. I’ve invested years in finding and studying, and now practicing for more than a decade to use the most effective therapy methods and tools.

I work so that clients can understand and accept themselves, and I teach skills to help them get through the toughest of times with dignity and love. I believe this kind of freedom is essential to being human. I want that for myself, my family, my community, and my clients.
