Avary received a Bachelor of Psychology with a minor in Brain and Cognitive Science from Wells College in Aurora, NY. Since moving to Iowa in 2014 to serve as a Youth Achievement AmeriCorps member, she has served her community through working at various local non-profits, and school and residential settings prior to starting Mount Mercy’s MFT program. Avary has worked with individuals who are diagnosed with various mental health and intellectual disabilities for the past 7 years. She has worked with both children and families, understanding the importance and impact that the family system can have on our lives. Avary recognizes that initiating therapy and talking about our past can be difficult but works to foster a safe and nurturing environment. When Avary isn’t at the clinic or working, she likes to spend time with her husband Kris, play with her 2 dogs, and doing yoga.
