Any relationship can be challenging.  What I like to call “the Principle of Charity” requires that we look for the best, rather than the worst, possible interpretation of someone’s words or actions.  This is just one of many core principles needed to produce healthy relationships. Life presents unique circumstances and dilemmas. I offer a tailored approach, working collaboratively with client’s individual needs to provide transformational tools and hope.



Aimee Short is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor and Play Therapist at True Difference. More than 20 years ago, she began working with a diverse set of problems that includes: helping women in domestic violence and family reunification shelters, Headstart Education, and meeting with children as a school counselor. These professional experiences were foundational to her insight and understanding when she opened a private practice in 2008. Aimee currently works as a family therapist with individuals, families and children. Her specialized skill set includes marriage counseling, play therapy, and hypnotherapy.  Aimee is also one of only a few in private practice who will make home visits, or attend school meetings when needed.


Aimee is a very curious person and loves meeting people and understanding new things. She enjoys running, shopping for bargains and watching adventure shows with her two teenage children, husband of 25 years, and her lap dog, Buttons. Aimee and her husband, Dan, have lived in Texas, New England, as well as Arizona, and traveled to many parts of the world. She is passionate about education, creating healthy environments for children, and has spent many years as a volunteer-mom in the local schools.
