How I work with Clients
Avery enjoys working with all types of clients, and his primary specialty is compassionate & competent care for military and veteran communities, as well as their families and first responders. Other competencies include anxiety/depression, trauma, privilege, power, multicultural issues and all identities under the LGBTQIA+ umbrella.
Avery’s intention is for you to feel safe bringing all parts of yourself into our sessions. All of you - all feelings, all identities and parts - are welcome. Only in a relationship of relative safety & non-judgement can growth happen. He maintains that YOU are the expert on you and as such takes a client-centered, collaborative, and relational approach to therapy. He will use the relationship, his experience, and YOUR insight & self-knowing, as well as appropriate tools & techniques. He will ask about your goals, challenges, strengths, and what has worked for you in the past. Your care will be as individual as you are.
Avery is in the process of meeting requirements for Sex Addiction certification (CSAT) from the International Association for Trauma and Addiction Professionals (IITAP). He is a positive supporter of consensual and healthy sex, as well as kink friendly and polyamory affirming.
