Aaron Leigh, M.S., LPC-A, NCC

I believe in the power of psychoeducation and personalized mental health care, creating a unique treatment plan for each client with specific, measurable goals.

– Aaron Leigh Horton, M.S., LPC-Associate, NCC


I use several modalities, including therapeutic breathwork, CBT, and DBT to help clients quickly reduce symptoms while evaluating unhealthy emotional and behavioral patterns. I work with adolescents and adults suffering from mood and anxiety disorders, complex trauma, women’s issues, narcissistic abuse, attachment issues, and personality disorders. I also work with couples to improve communication, develop healthy conflict-resolution skills, and create a long-term family vision and mission that restores harmony in everyday life.

Personal Statement:

I earned my B.A. in psychology from the University of Texas at Austin, and after a career as a business executive, returned to school in 2020, earning a Master of Science degree in clinical mental health counseling from Tarleton State University. I am an alumna of the National Women’s Leadership Academy, Leadership America, and was selected in 2015 to be a patient advocate for the National Center for Healthcare Research in Washington, D.C.

I am a writer, public speaker, and patient-first healthcare activist, and have published many written works about the dangers of using pharmaceuticals and medical devices cleared (not fully approved) through the FDA’s lax 510k marketing process. I enjoy hiking, gardening, and all forms of creativity and self-expression, love to learn, and believe that where there is humor, there is healing. My husband and I live in Central Texas and enjoy camping with our two dogs and parakeet. We have two adult

sons and three granddaughters and believe in the restoration of family relationships as a path to well-being.

“I am so happy I found Aaron. Aaron is the first therapist I feel like my thoughts and feelings can breathe without a filter. She allows me the space to be completely open without judgement while also keeping me on track to create better patterns for my mental health. It’s a hard balance to maintain but she has done it well throughout our sessions. Would recommend.”


“Aaron goes above and beyond for her clients and demonstrates to us that she genuinely cares about her patients. She has opened my eyes and shown me that therapy is much more than just sitting, talking, and taking notes. I look forward to every session.”
