Avery Kansteiner, Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC)

I am passionate about supporting people of all ages through life’s challenges. I offer deep empathy and gently hold space for clients as you navigate your journey of healing and transformation.

I use an eclectic solution-focused, person-centered approach integrating mindfulness and self-compassion work, Motivational Interviewing, CBT, DBT, music, art, play, and sand tray therapy techniques.

Specializing in child therapy, I offer 8 years of experience as an elementary school counselor and a variety of approaches to support children and parents such as consultation, skill-building, and the use of play and expressive arts.

I am eager to hear your story and help guide you in clarifying your goals, deepening insight about yourself, and thriving in your life.
