Aaron Price, LCSW

Aaron Price, LCSW


Aaron Price is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over 5 years of experience working to support individuals struggling with their relationship too intense psychiatric symptoms. I view recovery as the process of changing the boundaries of these relationships to gain more control and live with more freedom. Adverse experiences, intense emotions, and life stressors can prevent us from living by our values and preferences, and, through therapy, I support people in exploring the life that they want rather than avoiding experiences that feel too overwhelming to face. My core values of empathy, compassion, self-determination and social justice are guiding principles in the therapeutic work that I do with clients, and I strive to genuinely understand clients’ experiences and meet them where they are at each present moment.

I have extensive training and experience working with clients struggling with anxiety issues (including OCD, PTSD, Generalized Anxiety, and Social Anxiety) and mood disorders (Depression/Bipolar DO). I am very passionate about providing treatment for OCD and have seen how the consequences of these symptoms control people’s lives when they do not have the effective tools to intervene. I utilize a variety of therapeutic techniques including CBT, DBT, Motivational Interviewing, and Acceptance/Mindfulness skills with clients to help them make changes in their relationship to symptoms.

Rose –

I have been dealing with OCD, anxiety, and PTSD for the majority of my life. I have seen therapists off and on all of my life and I had gotten to the point of just deciding this was something I would have to suffer with for life. When I saw my young son was beginning to have the same issues, I reached out to Tammy after reading her bio. All I can say is for the first time in my life I have hope for my life and have made incredible progress along side my son. I am doing things in life I never thought I could, thanks to Tammy and her guidance. And I can be at peace knowing my son will not have a life full of struggles because he now is receiving the right tools.
Marci –

My son was diagnosed with OCD last summer and I can’t tell you how happy I am in having chosen Tammy as his therapist. She has taught him the skills he needs to control his OCD vs. OCD controlling him. Since he’s been in therapy, I’ve seen a tremendous growth in how he deals with OCD and anxiety. She has been an absolute God send and I will forever be grateful to her.

I started seeing Tammy a few months ago to help cope with my brother’s addiction and how it has affected my whole family. Tammy’s guidance and knowledge on addiction has helped tremendously.
CC –

Tammy has been a God send for both myself and my son. My son has been going to her for a little over a year and has been the only therapist we have found to help him with his severe OCD. I cannot say enough about how instrumental she has been in helping him deal with this. In the process she has also helped me get me get out of a very dark place. She is the most caring, compassionate person I have ever met. She has truly changed our lives and I am forever grateful.
CR –

My son has severe OCD and a coexisting diagnosis of high functioning autism. Through the years his OCD has been confused with his autism behaviors and not properly identified. Ms Van Linder immediately identified my son’s OCD and has begun exposure therapy to address this debilitating disorder. She has given the family strategies to confront the behaviors and we are seeing improvement already ! While we still have a long road ahead I am grateful for the proper diagnosis, treatment and improvement on my son’s quality if life and self-esteem.

Tammy takes the time needed with each patient. Walks with you in Christ during your healing process!
Jim –

Tammy is great! I love her so much! She’s helped me through difficult times. She’s very flexible with scheduling appointments and if you need to cancel she’s very understanding! She is great and I would suggest her to anyone who is looking for a therapist!
Julie –

In the last year I have made great progress under Tammy’s guidance. She has the ability to show compassion while teaching you life skills in how to handle conflict. I feel stronger and more confident then ever!!
Marie –

A few months ago I thought I was losing my mind. I felt like I couldn’t control my thoughts and was extremely stressed. I saw Tammy and I explained what I had been going through. After hearing my story and talking to me about what I had been experiencing, she determined I was suffering from OCD. She helped me realize that I have OCD but OCD doesn’t have me. She taught me different techniques for treating the OCD, which made my symptoms MUCH more manageable. Just understanding what was going on, and how to handle my thoughts and compulsions, made me feel much better. If you’re suffering from anxiety and need help sorting everything out, I highly recommend talking to Tammy. She’s very knowledgeable and easy to talk to. Brooklyn –

I never knew how to handle distressing ocd thoughts until I had counseling from Tammy.She helps you learn ERP, ways to cope with the anxiety.
Kevin –

About 2 1/2 months ago I was in a horrible place. I was going in a downward spiral and completely terrified of everything. I was suffering from a horrible case of Post Partum OCD / Anxiety, over 2 years after my son’s birth. I was absolutely convinced that I was a harm to myself, my family and everyone else. To put it in to words, I was living in hell. I remember thinking, what had my life become? I can’t go on like this much longer! I don’t want to live like this, in constant fear and terror. I had no clue what was wrong with me and I surely didn’t know I was suffering from OCD. I thought I had just gone mad! It was then that I took to the internet, desperate for answers and most of all help. It was then I learned that I had developed something called Harm OCD and the most effective was to treat / recover was through ERP therapy. I had never been to therapy in my life. I had never taken a pill for anxiety, depression, but my life had been turned into utter chaos, in such a short amount of time, I was desperate. By the absolutely grace of God, I found Tammy. I google searched ERP Therapists in Hartford and her name came up in my search engine. I called her and left a voicemail. My voicemail was that of a desperate woman. I was in hysterics actually, ready to commit myself to the Institute of Living. And Tammy called me back almost immediately. She was so kind and she knew EXACTLY what I was going through bc she had been there herself, 21 years ago! I was immediately so relieved. I knew instantly this was going to be my pathway to recovery, working with Tammy, someone who personally had climbed out of the darkness. I am not that same frightened woman I was back in January. Through weekly therapy sessions with Tammy, I am starting to feel like my old self again. I am no longer living in constant fear and anxiety. I am no longer afraid to hold my son/ be alone with him. I am no longer afraid to go to the grocery store or meet a friend for a drink.

Send a Testimonial

  • CONFIDENTIALITY: All information disclosed within sessions and the written records pertaining to those sessions are confidential and may not be revealed to anyone without your written permission except where disclosure is required by law.

    WHEN DISCLOSURE IS REQUIRED OR MAY BE REQUIRED BY LAW: Some of the circumstances where disclosure is required or may be required by law are: where there is a reasonable suspicion of child, dependent, or elder abuse or neglect; where a client presents a danger to self, to others, to property, or is gravely disabled; or when a client's family members communicate to Central CT Anxiety OCD Treatment LLC that the client presents a danger to others. Disclosure may also be required pursuant to a legal proceeding by or against you. If you place your mental status at issue in litigation initiated by you, the defendant may have the right to obtain the psychotherapy records and/or testimony by Central CT Anxiety OCD Treatment LLC. In couple and family therapy, or when different family members are seen individually, even over a period of time, confidentiality and privilege do not apply between the couple or among family members, unless otherwise agreed upon. Central CT Anxiety OCD Treatment LLC will use her clinical judgment when revealing such information. Central CT Anxiety OCD Treatment LLC will not release records to any outside party unless she is authorized to do so by all adult parties who were part of the family therapy, couple therapy or other treatment that involved more than one adult client.

    EMERGENCY: If there is an emergency during therapy, or in the future after termination, where Central CT Anxiety OCD Treatment LLC becomes concerned about your personal safety, the possibility of you injuring someone else, or about you receiving proper psychiatric care, she will do whatever she can within the limits of the law, to prevent you from injuring yourself or others and to ensure that you receive the proper medical care. For this purpose, she may also contact the person whose name you have provided on the biographical sheet.

    HEALTH INSURANCE & CONFIDENTIALITY OF RECORDS: Disclosure of confidential information may be required by your health insurance carrier or HMO/PPO/MCO/EAP in order to process the claims. If you so instruct Central CT Anxiety OCD Treatment LLC, only the minimum necessary information will be communicated to the carrier. Central CT Anxiety OCD Treatment LLC has no control over, or knowledge of, what insurance companies do with the information she submits or who has access to this information. You must be aware that submitting a mental health invoice for reimbursement carries a certain amount of risk to confidentiality, privacy or to future capacity to obtain health or life insurance or even a job. The risk stems from the fact that mental health information is likely to be entered into big insurance companies' computers and is likely to be reported to the National Medical Data Bank. Accessibility to companies' computers or to the National Medical Data Bank database is always in question as computers are inherently vulnerable to hacking and unauthorized access. Medical data has also been reported to have been legally accessed by law enforcement and other agencies, which also puts you in a vulnerable position.

    LITIGATION: Sometimes patients become involved in litigation while they are in therapy or after therapy has been completed. Sometimes patients (or the opposing attorney, in a legal case) want the records disclosed to the legal system. Due to the nature of the psychotherapeutic process and the fact that it often involves making a full disclosure with regard to many matters, clients’ records are generally confidential and private in nature. Patients should know that very serious consequences can result from disclosing therapy records to the legal system. Such disclosures may negatively affect the outcome of custody disputes or other legal matters and may negatively affect the therapeutic relationship. If you or the opposing attorney are considering requesting Central CT Anxiety OCD Treatment LLC’s disclosure of the records, Central CT Anxiety OCD Treatment LLC will do her best to discuss with you the risks and benefits of doing so. As noted in this document, you have the right to review your own psychotherapy records anytime. (See also relevant section above: "WHEN DISCLOSURE IS REQUIRED OR MAY BE REQUIRED BY LAW")

    CONSULTATION: Central CT Anxiety OCD Treatment LLC consults regularly with other professionals regarding her clients; however, each client's identity remains completely anonymous and confidentiality is fully maintained.

    E–MAILS, CELL PHONES, COMPUTERS, AND FAXES: It is very important to be aware that computers and unencrypted email, texts, and e-faxes communication (which are part of the clinical records) can be relatively easily accessed by unauthorized people and hence can compromise the privacy and confidentiality of such communication. Emails, texts, and e-faxes, in particular, are vulnerable to such unauthorized access due to the fact that servers or communication companies may have unlimited and direct access to all emails, texts and e-faxes that go through them. While data on Central CT Anxiety OCD Treatment LLC’s laptop is encrypted, emails, texts and e-fax are not. It is always a possibility that e-faxes, texts, and email can be sent erroneously to the wrong address and computers. Central CT Anxiety OCD Treatment LLC’s laptop is equipped with a firewall, a virus protection and a password, and she backs up all confidential information from her computer on a regular basis onto an encrypted hard-drive. Also, be aware that phone messages are transcribed and sent to Central CT Anxiety OCD Treatment LLC via unencrypted emails. Please notify Central CT Anxiety OCD Treatment LLC if you decide to avoid or limit, in any way, the use of email, texts, cell phones calls, phone messages, or e-faxes. If you communicate confidential or private information via unencrypted email, texts or e-fax or via phone messages, will assume that you have made an informed decision, will view it as your agreement to take the risk that such communication may be intercepted, and she will honor your desire to communicate on such matters. Please do not use texts, email, voice mail, or faxes for emergencies.

    RECORDS AND YOUR RIGHT TO REVIEW THEM: Both the law and the standards of Central CT Anxiety OCD Treatment LLC’s profession require that she keep treatment records for at least 2 years. Please note that clinically relevant information from emails, texts, and faxes are part of the clinical records. Unless otherwise agreed to be necessary, Central CT Anxiety OCD Treatment LLC retains clinical records only as long as is mandated by Connecticut law. If you have concerns regarding the treatment records, please discuss them with Central CT Anxiety OCD Treatment LLC. As a client, you have the right to review or receive a summary of your records at any time, except in limited legal or emergency circumstances or when Central CT Anxiety OCD Treatment LLC assesses that releasing such information might be harmful in any way. In such a case, Central CT Anxiety OCD Treatment LLC will provide the records to an appropriate and legitimate mental health professional of your choice. Considering all of the above exclusions, if it is still appropriate, and upon your request, harmful in any way. When more than one client is involved in treatment, such as in cases of couple and family therapy, Central CT Anxiety OCD Treatment LLC will release records only with signed authorizations from all the adults (or all those who legally can authorize such a release) involved in the treatment.

    TELEPHONE & EMERGENCY PROCEDURES: If you need to contact Central CT Anxiety OCD Treatment LLC between sessions, please leave a message at the answering service (860) 436 -2250 and your call will be returned as soon as possible. Central CT Anxiety OCD Treatment LLC checks her messages a few times during the daytime only, unless she is out of town. If an emergency situation arises, indicate it clearly in your message and if you need to talk to someone right away call Psychiatric Emergency Services.

    (Your town): (___) ___-____,

    24-hour crisis line (your town): (___)

    ___-____ or the Police: 911.

    Please do not use email or faxes for emergencies. Central CT Anxiety OCD Treatment LLC does not always check her email or faxes daily.

    PAYMENTS & INSURANCE REIMBURSEMENT: Clients are expected to pay the standard fee of $130.00 per 45 minute or $180.00 per hour session at the end of each session or at the end of the month unless other arrangements have been made. Telephone conversations, site visits, writing and reading of reports, consultation with other professionals, release of information, reading records, longer sessions, travel time, etc. will be charged at the same rate, unless indicated and agreed upon otherwise. Please notify Central CT Anxiety OCD Treatment LLC if any problems arise during the course of therapy regarding your ability to make timely payments. Clients who carry insurance should remember that professional services are rendered and charged to the clients and not to the insurance companies. Unless agreed upon differently, Central CT Anxiety OCD Treatment LLC will provide you with a copy of your receipt on a monthly basis, which you can then submit to your insurance company for reimbursement, if you so choose. As was indicated in the section, Health Insurance & Confidentiality of Records, you must be aware that submitting a mental health invoice for reimbursement carries a certain amount of risk. Not all issues/conditions/problems, which are dealt with in psychotherapy, are reimbursed by insurance companies. It is your responsibility to verify the specifics of your coverage. If your account is overdue (unpaid) and there is no written agreement on a payment plan, Central CT Anxiety OCD Treatment LLC can use legal or other means (courts, collection agencies, etc.) to obtain payment.

    THE PROCESS OF THERAPY/EVALUATION AND SCOPE OF PRACTICE: Participation in therapy can result in a number of benefits to you, including improving interpersonal relationships and resolution of the specific concerns that led you to seek therapy. Working toward these benefits, however, requires effort on your part. Psychotherapy requires your very active involvement, honesty, and openness in order to change your thoughts, feelings, and/or behavior. Central CT Anxiety OCD Treatment LLC will ask for your feedback and views on your therapy, its progress, and other aspects of the therapy and will expect you to respond openly and honestly. Sometimes more than one approach can be helpful in dealing with a certain situation. During evaluation or therapy, remembering or talking about unpleasant events, feelings, or thoughts can result in you experiencing considerable discomfort or strong feelings of anger, sadness, worry, fear, etc., or experiencing anxiety, depression, insomnia, etc. Central CT Anxiety OCD Treatment LLC may challenge some of your assumptions or perceptions or propose different ways of looking at, thinking about, or handling situations, which can cause you to feel very upset, angry, depressed, challenged, or disappointed. Attempting to resolve issues that brought you to therapy in the first place, such as personal or interpersonal relationships, may result in changes that were not originally intended. Psychotherapy may result in decisions about changing behaviors, employment, substance use, schooling, housing, or relationships. Sometimes a decision that is positive for one family member is viewed quite negatively by another family member. Change will sometimes be easy and swift, but more often it will be slow and even frustrating. There is no guarantee that psychotherapy will yield positive or intended results. During the course of therapy, Central CT Anxiety OCD Treatment LLC is likely to draw on various psychological approaches according, in part, to the problem that is being treated and her assessment of what will best benefit you. These approaches include, but are not limited to, behavioral, cognitive-behavioral, cognitive, psychodynamic, existential, system/family, developmental (adult, child, family), humanistic or psycho-educational. Central CT Anxiety OCD Treatment LLC provides neither custody evaluation recommendation nor medication or prescription recommendation nor legal advice, as these activities do not fall within her scope of practice.

    TREATMENT PLANS: Within a reasonable period of time after the initiation of treatment, Central CT Anxiety OCD Treatment LLC will discuss with you her working understanding of the problem, treatment plan, therapeutic objectives, and her view of the possible outcomes of treatment. If you have any unanswered questions about any of the procedures used in the course of your therapy, their possible risks, Central CT Anxiety OCD Treatment LLC 's expertise in employing them, or about the treatment plan, please ask and you will be answered fully. You also have the right to ask about other treatments for your condition and their risks and benefits.

    TERMINATION: As set forth above, after the first couple of meetings, Central CT Anxiety OCD Treatment LLC will assess if she can be of benefit to you. Central CT Anxiety OCD Treatment LLC does not work with clients who, in her opinion, she cannot help. In such a case, if appropriate, she will give you referrals that you can contact. If at any point during psychotherapy Central CT Anxiety OCD Treatment LLC either assesses that she is not effective in helping you reach the therapeutic goals or perceived you as non-compliant or non-responsive, and if you are available and/or it is possible and appropriate to do, she will discuss with you the termination of treatment and conduct pre-termination counseling. In such a case, if appropriate and/or necessary, she would give you a couple of referrals that may be of help to you. If you request it and authorize it in writing, Central CT Anxiety OCD Treatment LLC will talk to the psychotherapist of your choice in order to help with the transition. If at any time you want another professional’s opinion or wish to consult with another therapist, Central CT Anxiety OCD Treatment LLC will give you a couple of referrals that you may want to contact, and if she has your written consent, she will provide her with the essential information needed. You have the right to terminate therapy and communication at any time. If you choose to do so, upon your request and if appropriate and possible, Central CT Anxiety OCD Treatment LLC will provide you with names of other qualified professionals whose services you might prefer.

    DUAL RELATIONSHIPS: Despite a popular perception, not all dual or multiple relationships are unethical or avoidable. Therapy never involves sexual or any other dual relationship that impairs Central CT Anxiety OCD Treatment LLC 's objectivity, clinical judgment or can be exploitative in nature. Central CT Anxiety OCD Treatment LLC will assess carefully before entering into non-sexual and non-exploitative dual relationships with clients. It is important to realize that in some communities, particularly small towns, small communities, military bases, university campuses, spiritual and rehabilitation communities, etc., multiple relationships are either unavoidable or expected. Central CT Anxiety OCD Treatment LLC will never acknowledge working with anyone without her written permission. Many clients have chosen Central CT Anxiety OCD Treatment LLC as their therapist because they knew her before they entered therapy with her, and/or are personally aware of her professional work and achievements. Nevertheless, Central CT Anxiety OCD Treatment LLC will discuss with you the often-existing complexities, potential benefits and difficulties that may be involved in dual or multiple relationships. Dual or multiple relationships can enhance trust and therapeutic effectiveness but can also detract from it and often it is impossible to know which ahead of time. It is your responsibility to advise Central CT Anxiety OCD Treatment LLC if the dual or multiple relationship becomes uncomfortable for you in any way. Central CT Anxiety OCD Treatment LLC will always listen carefully and respond to your feedback and will discontinue the dual relationship if she finds it interfering with the effectiveness of the therapy or your welfare and, of course, you can do the same at any time.

    SOCIAL NETWORKING AND INTERNET SEARCHES: At times, Central CT Anxiety OCD Treatment LLC may conduct a web search on my clients before the beginning of therapy or during therapy. If you have concerns or questions regarding this practice, please discuss them with me. I do not accept friend requests from current or former clients on social networking sites, such as Facebook. I believe that adding clients as friends on these sites and/or communicating via such sites can compromise their privacy and confidentiality. For this same reason, I request that clients not communicate with me via any interactive or social networking web sites.

    AUDIO OR VIDEO RECORDING: Unless otherwise agreed to by all parties beforehand, there shall be no audio or video recording of therapy sessions, phone calls, or any other services provided by Central CT Anxiety OCD Treatment LLC.

    CANCELLATION: Since the scheduling of an appointment involves the reservation of time specifically for you, a minimum of 48 hours (2 days) notice is required for re-scheduling or canceling an appointment. Unless we reach a different agreement, the full fee will be charged for sessions missed without such notification. Most insurance companies do not reimburse for missed sessions. I have read the above Office Policies and General Information, Agreement for Psychotherapy Services or Informed Consent for Psychotherapy carefully (a total of 5 pages); I understand them and agree to comply with them.
