Counselor Intern

Avery Robbins is a clinical mental health intern at RPC and a graduate student at Liberty University working towards completing a Master of Arts in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. Prior to her graduate studies, Avery earned a Bachelor of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies with a focus in Global Studies, Religious Studies, and Psychology from Liberty University.

Avery recognizes that we all have places of pain and disruption in our lives, and she desires to cultivate a space where clients can feel seen and heard while taking steps towards healing. She takes a holistic approach recognizing the importance of the mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual components of each person. She utilizes an integrative approach that incorporates Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Narrative Therapy, and Person-Centered Approaches. In conjunction with her theoretical orientation, she believes that reflecting on one’s own story assists individuals in recognizing patterns and deeply held beliefs in their lives. Avery is seeking to gain more experience in working with individuals in areas such as, but not limited to, anxiety, eating, self-esteem, body image, trauma, and spiritual concerns. She also has experience in collegiate athletics.

Avery sees spiritual integration as a significant part of the therapy process. She approaches counseling through a Christ-centered lens, but she respects each person, meets every client where they are spiritually, and never imposes her own beliefs on a client.
