About

Avery Fisher, LMHC

Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LH60579078)

Master's Degree in Marriage & Family Therapy

Somatic Experiencing Practitioner

Certificate in Cultural Somatics

 

I'm a queer and transgender therapist with a background in individual, couple, and family therapy. I received my Master's Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Colorado State University in 2007. During my studies I got a solid grounding in Feminist and Family Systems Therapies. 

 

Since graduate school, I have pursued additional training in Somatic Experiencing (SE). My practice of SE has been particularly influenced by Ecotherapy. These two models are my primary modalities, however I collaborate with clients to determine what approaches would be most helpful.

 

Prior to starting a private practice, I worked for many years in the outpatient mental health field. Working in community mental health gave me a specific interest and skill set for treating trauma, particularly within marginalized communities. I see my current work as part of a movement of people providing therapy that is effective, utilizes the body's own innate capacity to heal, and is culturally competent.
