Hi y’all, I’m Avery! I am a graduate-level clinical intern from CU Denver specializing in relationship and family therapy. I believe that one of the best things about being human is that we are relational beings; we heal and grow in community with one another. I approach therapy as a collaborative relationship in which you are the expert of your own life and experiences. Whether you are coming to therapy with a specific goal in mind or are looking for a judgment-free space to process life and its many complexities, I strive to meet you where you are at, leading with compassion and curiosity to walk alongside you on your unique journey.
Be it with individuals, couples, families, or other relational systems, I approach therapy from a social justice based, systemic lens. I utilize narrative, person-centered, feminist, and emotionally focused theories to guide our therapeutic work together. I also work from a queer affirming and sex-positive perspective. Regardless of identity, relationship orientation, and individual story, I believe in the innate and healing abundance of people. I am committed to creating space to celebrate and tap into that abundance as a pathway to healing on a personal, interpersonal, and intergenerational level.
Originally from Florida, I came to Colorado in 2018 by way of Massachusetts and am happy to call Denver home. When I am not at Inner Compass, I enjoy connecting with the outdoors, playing tennis, creating fiber art, crafting, and exploring Denver’s food scene (although, most of my free time is spent with my old english sheepdog, Beanie).
