Meet Aaron Turpeau

Today we’d like to introduce you to Aaron Turpeau.

Aaron, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
I started as a counselor at Morehouse College and began my practice par time in Midtown. In 2010, I made the leap to doing my counseling practice full time.

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
I was afraid to go into full-time self-employment at first. I eventually saw how well the practice was going I decided to make the leap full time. I became very successful and look back now and question my self by saying, “What was I so afraid of? I should have made the leap a long time ago.” I am glad that I finally gained the courage to believe in my own ability.

Please tell us more about your work, what you are currently focused on and most proud of.
