I could literally write pages and go into great detail about my experience with Aaron, but I’ll TRY to keep it concise. Aaron is one of the best things that have ever happened to me. With a lifelong history of substance abuse, I have been through a multitude of treatment facilities and programs. A family member recommended to my mom that I should go see Aaron. My parents (knowing that I had zero faith in any treatment programs) suggested that I might like Aaron after they looked him up themselves. Already naturally being a highly skeptical person, I reluctantly looked Aaron up and poured over his online presence. I was surprisingly impressed with what I saw and agreed to see Aaron. After our first meeting, I couldn’t believe it – I felt I found someone I could relate to. I can still remember the feeling of joy leaving the meeting. Feeling like “I think this is going to work” We didn’t meet in an office. He didn’t have me fill out a questionnaire. He didn’t sit across from me and take notes. While perhaps he had his own agenda and master plan in his head – I didn’t see it or feel it. We just simply talked. He asked. He listened. He offered advice. Each meeting I had with Aaron felt like a cleanse. I would always leave each meeting with profound new thoughts and words of wisdom. I would tell my parents and my girlfriend of each meeting I had with him. The thing I always tell everyone when talking about Aaron – There were maybe 4 meetings I had with him where at some small part of the conversation he would talk about something, recommend something, challenge me on something, etc. where I would genuinely feel I didn’t fully agree with him or that it didn’t apply to me and I’d think “Yeah, I appreciate it, but I don’t know about that”……. Then, by the time I would meet with him, through the course of going about my week, something would make me see and understand exactly what he was talking about! It would just click! Even outside of meetings with Aaron I would have “Ah-ha!” moments with something that he said. It would all come full circle. It always blew my mind. With Aaron I always felt I had a partner in my quest / struggle for sobriety. Like I was going at it alone. Aaron makes you WANT to be sober. I’m 2 years and 3 months clean and sober now. My life is drastically different. The things I have accomplished personally and professionally would have never come to fruition if I wasn’t sober. I’ve never felt better in my adult life. Aaron is truly a gift to humankind. Through me, his work will forever resonate throughout my entire family, friends, girlfriend, relations, and the interactions I have in society all over the world. replyReply more_vert
I have had the opportunity to collaborate with Aaron on several different cases. He is extremely passionate about helping his clients reach their goals no matter what obstacles are in their way. He is extremely caring, not only for his clients, but he is very supportive and encouraging with their families. He intuitively knows the perfect balance between motivating a person while still being empathetic to their struggles. He is unequivocally the best coach I have ever had the opportunity to work with. I would highly recommend Aaron to any family or individual that is struggling right now.
I wholeheartedly agree with the previous Google reviews as to Aaron’s character. I reached out to Sober Coaching mid-June. Aaron promptly called me back, we chatted and decided on a 2-week sober companion stay. Prior to this, I was lost in alcohol dependence, total isolation, depression and anxiety. This pattern had been going on for a decade or more. Other treatments failed, I believe, because they were not intensive enough, not tailored to my underlying issues, not holistic and not on location here at home where my triggers and habits needed to be identified and addressed. After two weeks and some follow up, I am free and living a glorious sober life. My days are filled with people, places and things that bring joy and a smile to my heart. My four children are grateful for the changes they see. Thank you Aaron, you are a very special person. This was the best investment of my life.

There are people that have something about them, that leaves a deep impression on you. Aaron Barnes is one of them. I had the honor of meeting and working with Aaron recently and the moment we met, I felt positive vibes and genuine energy. Throughout the day, he told me about his past addiction, darkest of days and the difficult battle he had to endure, to make it out. His process and metamorphosis to the vibrant, strong and inspiring human being he is now, is extraordinary! You can feel the passion and gratitude for life and sobriety, in every word that he speaks. His experience, infectious smile and attitude can help so many people that are dealing with addiction. His work as a Sobriety Coach is so meaningful. I am blessed to have met Aaron and always feel uplifted after every interaction with him.
If you aren’t a fan of labels and just want to live a healthier happier lifestyle and what you are doing isn’t working reach out to Aaron! He’s lived and overcome addiction and will meet you where you’re at and give you the tools and guide you to where you want to be. Health, Wellness, and Sobriety is the best choice I’ve ever made! Two days before my one year of sobriety my 12-year-old son Chase unexpectedly passed away that year prior was the best year of my life full of clarity, awareness, adventures, presence, laughter and beautiful memories. Aaron was there for me that year and in my darkest hours, I’m grateful to know him and to learn from him!
I contacted Aaron in February 2019 during a turbulent time in my life. When he spoke to me in those early days in recovery, he gave me such a sense of hope. He provided me with the tools and resources I needed to truly begin the healing process. He inspired me to accept that this journey involved the mind, body, and spirit. He would make me laugh through the tears and…..he’s not too hard on the eyes either. Aaron will continue to play a vital role in my recovery as I plan to retain his services for a longer duration. This man is a warrior!!!!!!
My decision to call Aaron was by far one of the best decisions I have ever made. I was lost in the depths of addiction. I have been to rehab, outpatient treatment, and every therapy resource I could find. I made the call to Aaron and since that day he has step by step helped me to start seeing the incredible light of sobriety and recovery. Aaron doesn’t mess around. He knows every trick in the book and has the ability to not only relate to his clients, but shows by example what a beautiful life awaits us all with sobriety. Aaron came to me from across the country and in a very short time built a team in my town that lifts me up daily. My treatment plan is working. It is a work in progress, but I am moving in the right direction. The best part is I know that Aaron is on my team, has my back, understands me, and scolds me just enough when I have had setbacks. He is the real deal and will forever be my friend. If you are lost in addiction, I promise this is the man you need on your team and path to recovery. Make the call. You will not regret it.
Aaron Barnes is passionate about his work and is truly committed to his clients. He’s been an outstanding resource in Omaha for information and advice on addiction and recovery. He leads by example and is willing to invest himself in each person he mentors. Aaron is recovery in action. His holistic and approach to self-care, fitness, and recovery is refreshing and very much needed.
The most important tool Aaron taught me was perspective. He helped me see things differently. Once I did, everything changed. The mindset changed then my well-being followed. Six months later my life is transformed. I would recommend Aaron at the top of the game when it comes to life in recovery. Thanks for everything Aaron!
