Aaron “Jake” Hayden, MSW, LISW-S
Jake Hayden earned his Masters in Social Work at Wayne State University in Detroit Michigan and his Bachelors of Science in Psychology at the University of Michigan at the Flint Michigan branch campus. Jake has spent the majority of his career working in the community mental health setting. He has experience working with individuals from a diversity of socioeconomic backgrounds and functional capacities. This interest and skill in working with diverse populations comes from his time spent at Wayne State University, where this was a focus of his graduate program and studies.
In addition to his time spent in mental health settings, he also worked in the hospice setting. While working as a hospice based therapist, he gained further exposure and experience addressing issues of death, and dying and the grieving process as experienced by both the dying and their surviving loved ones. While working in this setting, he was provided training in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapy. Jake continues to use this therapeutic tool in his current practice to address and alleviate issues of trauma. Jake makes use of a variety of therapeutic approaches including: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Multisystemic Therapy (MST), and Trauma Informed Care (TIC). Drawing from Multisystemic Therapy and Trauma Informed Care, he believes that a person can be more fully understood if their life experiences are more fully understood and affirmed. He also believes that a person's current coping and actions are often shaped by these past experiences, and make sense when put into these contexts. Drawing from his training and experiences as a Social Worker, he is also aware of the interrelationships between the individual person and their larger social environments.
Jake is available to see people from all walks of life and age groups. He strives to provide a casual, patient, and empathetic approach. He is often given feedback that this approach has been helpful for people who are entering into therapy for the first time and are anxious about the process.
