About Ananya Avinash

First off, I know it requires a unique type of energy and vulnerability to reach out for support. Thank you for giving yourself permission to do so. Maybe you’re experiencing self-doubt that makes it difficult to wake up every morning. Maybe you’re having trouble shaking off intrusive thoughts staying rent-free inside your head. Maybe you have the impression that your concerns aren’t important enough to talk about. Maybe other people in your life just don’t “get it”. No matter what’s happening, you deserve unconditional support.

The most crucial aspect of therapy is the connection between you and your counselor. My eclectic, client-centered approach utilizes concepts from multiple modalities in order to create an alliance with you. In addition, my background as a second generation South Asian immigrant provides unique insight around issues such as racial identity and assimilation. Many therapeutic modalities can leave clients from other cultures feeling unheard and invalidated, and it is imperative to adjust our practices to accommodate your unique cultural values and life experiences.

I look forward to hearing from you!

***DISCLAIMER: I am only able to provide services to those located within the state of Michigan (even for telehealth).***
