Aries McGinnis, CMHC

Telehealth Counseling and Coaching

15 Years of Experience Working with Teens and Adults

While working with people, I help them work through the process of engagement, healing, and growth. My initial approach is to see the person for who they are: what is great about them. We all have greatness and I work with people to help them see their own greatness noting that their behaviors does not define them. The behavior is unhealthy, not the person. Who a person is at the core is always great, healthy, and beautiful. As we pull apart maladaptive behaviors from the individual, I help people become actively engaged in their own therapeutic process. When a person is engaged, we can begin the journey of healing and growth.

In working with clients, I find a core issue is often anxiety of some sort. At its core, therapy is sharing some of your deepest feelings, thoughts, concerns. That can, understandably, create anxiety. As you reach out to therapists, you want someone who understands this and helps you feel safe to share. 

Personally, I love the mountains and outdoors. Skiing, rafting, canyoneering, kayaking, and hiking are some of my loves. I have also enjoyed adventurous activities such as hang gliding, sky diving, and bungee jumping. I grew up outside of Philadelphia and I remain close to my roots heading home multiple times a year to see family and friends. I spent a decade in Utah working with teens and families before moving further north. I now enjoy the living in wild state of Alaska.

Aries went above and beyond, not only in providing exceptional counseling but also in extending his support to my parents and family. His dedication and care were unparalleled, and I will forever be thankful for his guidance. Aries’s genuine compassion and exceptional skills make him a truly outstanding therapist. Any client who has the opportunity to work with Aries is undoubtedly in capable and caring hands. I wholeheartedly recommend Aries to anyone seeking nothing short of the best therapy that goes beyond expectations. P.S. He’s a great friend too.

Former Mom: Aries helped me and my family when my son was in crisis. He had amazing listening skills, was very patient and understanding, and helped our family to do what was best for our son. We are blessed to have worked with Aries over the past several years, I wouldn’t hesitate to have him work with one of my family members again.

Former Dad: The care and honesty that Aries has provided our family over the years has been invaluable. He has a special gift, and he loves to provide it to help others. “Aries says” is a phrase that makes our family stop to consider, listen, and make a determination to work on ourselves.

Former Student: Aries is a wonderful, kind, and thoughtful person who would be a great fit for anyone with self confidence issues. He keeps it real and isn’t afraid to challenge you.
