Aidan Sullivan, Clinician/Coach
Aidan Sullivan earned his Master’s degree on Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Regis College. Prior to joining the Riser + Tread team, he worked at Doc Wayne Youth Services Inc., a non-profit organization focused on leading the mental health movement utilizing a sports-based therapeutic approach. He served and supported those in need ages 5 through 18 in both a group and individual setting. While at Doc Wayne, he helped clients work on social-emotional skills, while also coordinating with parents, families, school systems, and clinical teams to ensure communication and maximize positive clinical outcomes.
Aidan utilizes a person-centered and cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) approach, with the intention of challenging negative and unwanted thought patterns to establish a healthy sense of self, and to craft goals from both a coaching and therapeutic perspective. Aidan draws from evidence-based practices while also incorporating his personal experience as a former Division 1 Collegiate Track & Field runner, leading to an experience for clients that is well-rounded and creative.
At Riser+Tread, Aidan works with clients ages 8-29 focusing on ADHD, anxiety, and depression, and often works with athletes in the Sports Performance+Recovery (SP+R) Program. Using a blend of coaching+therapy, Aidan supports clients in developing confidence, goal setting, adjustment to transitions, healthy social interaction, and peak performance (both athletically and outside the realm of athletics).
In his spare time, Aidan thoroughly enjoys running around the New Hampshire coast as he is preparing for the upcoming Boston Marathon. He loves visiting his family back home and traveling to see his younger brother at The United States Military Academy at West Point, and younger sister at the University of Kentucky.
