Aubrey has a passion for working with teens and adults who are struggling with life transitions, anxiety, depression, and trauma. Aubrey also has a passion for working with LGBTQIA+ individuals and members of the music industry. He operates from an integrative person-centered approach that utilizes a mix of evidence-based practices such as eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) therapy and cognitive behavioral therapy, while providing a quality therapeutic relationship via Carl Rogers’ core therapeutic conditions. Aubrey is a firm believer in Rogers’ theory, which states that if accurate empathic understanding, unconditional positive regard, and congruence are present in the therapeutic relationship, positive growth and change will inevitably occur. In regard to EMDR, Aubrey is trained in S.A.F.E. EMDR via the Personal Transformation Institute.
