Martha Aveni, MA 
Resident in Counseling

I am honored to be at the Center for Holistic Psychotherapy as a licensed resident counselor. I hold a Master of Arts in Clinical Mental Health Counseling earned with high distinction from Liberty University. I have experience in serving diverse populations, including children, adolescents, couples, trauma and

grief clients, addiction and DUI clients, anxiety, depression, eating disorders, ADD/ADHD, and various behavioral issues. I am a warm and accepting counselor who brings wisdom, comfort, security, and professionalism into the counseling room.

I sought professional training to become a therapist after many years of marriage and child-rearing. I bring a lifetime of experience to the counseling relationship which includes my time as a teacher, coach, parent educator, and childbirth educator. As a mental health professional, I feel called to serve those

who seek wellness in body, mind, and soul.

My clinical approach is compassionate in that I can often personally relate to my clients’ suffering. Therapy also entails that I appropriately and ethically utilize diagnosis, assessment, and therapeutic goal setting in collaboration with the client. I check in with the client throughout treatment to see what is

working and what is not so we can modify the treatment approach, as needed. I have experience in evidence-based approaches, including but not limited to cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), motivational interviewing (MI),

solution focused brief therapy (SFBT), mindfulness, and faith-based counseling.
