Serving the needs of individuals with diverse gender identities and sexualities is also one of his clinical passions. Here at Gustavus, Aaron co-facilitates the LGBTQ+ support group Queer & Questioning.

Outisde of work, Aaron's personal interestes include reading, cooking, gardening, and spending time with his pets. He has three cats (named Nietzsche, Juniper, and Thistle) and two corgis (named Obie and Vesper).
