“I never knew how much I could get from these sessions. I never knew I could talk about my emotions like this. This therapy has been the best thing that’s ever happened to me.”
“I got more out of the first session with Avery than I had in two years of counseling with my other therapist.”
“What I wanted to say is how much I appreciate the last year with you. I can’t tell you how much it means to me to have the time to talk with someone that truly listens. I feel comfortable being open and honest with you and the insight you offer me is simply priceless. I’m not sure how it has happened exactly, but since we’ve been working together I have changed for the better. The most notable change is in how I talk to myself. I have a lot more self compassion and that is making it possible for many more changes. For the first time I truly feel positive and hopeful about myself and my life. I know it’s a continuous work in progress and I intend to keep working. I just wanted express my gratitude and appreciation for you. You have helped to begin living a more balanced life. Thank you.”
“As a middle-aged woman with challenging teenagers and a marriage that has struggled over the years, I have been seeing Avery for help in finding my way forward. She has been a blessing to me. She not only listens to me but she really hears what I have to say and how I am truly feeling. No judging, only caring. She has supported me in my emotional journey over these past couple of years and has always encouraged me to find my voice, to value and trust my feelings. With Avery’s support, I feel stronger and more confident every day. She has been a gift to me and I am so thankful.”
“I first started seeing Avery in 2009 for postpartum depression. Throughout our sessions she gave me exercises and techniques to help me overcome obstacles. She praised me and helped me to see my true potential. I am so thankful that she has and continues to be a part of my treatment. Avery has become a very special person in my life.”
I don’t know where to start or how to tell you how much Avery means to me and my family. Avery is the most understanding and compassionate human I have ever met. She gave me the path to move forward and the will to be who I have always wanted to be. I can never repay Avery for what she has done for me.
When I was looking for someone to help me with postpartum depression, I found lots of bad advice and not a lot of understanding. Then I found Avery and it has changed my life. In the darkest hours of my life, Avery was the only light. Nobody else could understand where I was and why I couldn’t just be better and enjoy the most beautiful gift of life. Motherhood was the only thing I wanted for years, and once I was responsible for this beautiful boy, all I could think about (obsess really) was, “What if I can’t do this?” and “What if he leaves this world and I am left without him?”
In a time in my life when I really needed someone to understand me and the turmoil in my life and in my head, Avery was there to help me make sense of it. She even helped others around me understand what was going on. She gave me the tools to explain it not only to others but myself as well. I still have a long way to go, but Avery has given me the directions and the road map to get where I want to be with the understanding and compassion that I needed. I truly believe Avery saved me and my family.
