Individual Psychotherapy

Dr. Aiello’s Approach to Private Individual Therapy


Dr. Aiello is known in the industry for having an engaging, active, personable style immediately putting clients at ease for a strong therapeutic bond necessary for deeper insights and behavioral change. While empathetic, kind, and occasionally humorous if the situation dictates, she is also direct, meets people “where they are” and will offer guidance and support when appropriate and necessary.

Dr. Aiello will help you dig into your family of origin issues as reflected in the patient’s current personal and professional relationships and to uncover patterns both positive and negative that are either helpful and need expansion, or negative and require new behavioral choices for better living.

With addictions, Dr. Aiello works cognitive behaviorally easing into insight oriented and psychodynamically focused work that may or may not include trauma therapy such as EMDR and TRM, a somatic modality.

Dr. Aiello is influenced by the humanities, psychoanalytic and attachment theories, and various spiritual philosophies. Dr. Aiello also has specific expertise working with physicians and other health professionals as well as creative artists struggling with burnout, addictions, creative blocks, and relationship challenges.

You will find that by engaging in a strong, therapeutic relationship, we will both work to uncover the sometimes unconscious motivations and self-destructive behaviors, defenses, and thoughts that are preventing you from living your life to the fullest capacity. It takes work and discipline to change, but with a competent, experienced therapist who will walk with you during your journey, you will find that you can learn to take charge of your life and to take responsibility for your own choices.
