More about me

Licensing: LCSW
Years in Practice: 4
State: IL

Greetings citizens of the universe my name is Aaron Swerdlove and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker based in Chicago Illinois. In 2003 I completed my Masters degree at The University of Illinois-Chicago, Jane Addams College of Social Work. Over the years I’ve learned a few things, for instance sometimes the best advice is the advice not given. Another thing I’ve learned is to not be so judgmental of others.

Indeed I have begun a counseling/therapy practice and I do offer support, guidance, and understanding. My approach is integrative because there is not a one size fits all when it comes to problems and difficulties in life. The client’s prerogative is super important .

Adversity, difficulties, rough patches, problems, failures, etc are bound to happen in life and sometimes people need assistance to get through and understand what it is they are experiencing. I think therapy and counseling can be very useful in this endeavor.

Making a little bit more space internally can result in more freedom and peace within. Changing the narrative of our storylines or understanding our experience in a different way can be liberating. Therapy/counseling can definitely help accomplish this. Go for it you are worth it. I’d love the opportunity to help.

About online counseling

Online counseling allows you to receive care from an online mental health practitioner via phone, video chat, or instant messaging. It is convenient for those who may have trouble getting to or would prefer not to have in-person therapy appointments. Ranging from $60 to $90 per week, online counseling is generally more affordable than in-person counseling. A study by researchers at University of California, Berkeley found that online counseling can be just as effective as face-to-face therapy while being more convenient, affordable, and accessible.

Aaron is an excellent therapist. Very accurate with his diagnosis of me and referred me to Podcast that was perfect for me. He’s very intuitive. He continues to peel back the layers during every session.

Aaron is a fantastic, thorough and adaptable counselor with a good sense of humor. After contemplating therapy for more than a year, I decided to use Better Help. Aaron has been a great counselor during a very difficult time and has been adaptable to a very volatile time in my life. I'm very appreciative and look forward to working with Aaron for a long time.

Aaron is wonderful! Very knowledgeable and patient and understanding. He was a huge help to me and I would recommend him to everyone!

R.O.·Aug 04, 2020


Aron and I get along well and we share a sense of humour about life. He listens closely and I see him take notes and then he asks me pointed questions that allow me to think about what I said and how I feel about it. I feel he lets me find an answer or a direction to explore.

Great support. Like a friend and counsellor combined

P.E.·Jul 30, 2020


Great work!

Aaron Is a very empathetic listener. I had trouble finding a counsellor willing to do regular video calls (which I think is so important). I would highly reccomend.

C.A.·Jul 07, 2020


Great guy, better counselor.

G.R.·Jun 04, 2020


I really enjoy Aaron's style of counseling.

M.I.·Apr 18, 2020


There have been very few times I have participated in counseling where I have felt the counselor was truly listening to what I was saying. There is no doubt in my mind that Aaron Swerdlove has held on to every word. He is very straight forward with his processes and he offers REASON alongside his help and advice. He makes me feel like I'm on his level. Absolutely a respectful and a respectable man. I would recommend him time and time again.
