My name is Anura Mathis and I am thrilled to join the team at A.V.O.S Counseling Center and Training Institute. Although I am from DFW area in Texas, I’ve always loved the mountains and feel they represent healing, which is why I took the leap and left my hometown. I have lived in Colorado for about a year and am looking forward to serving this community for many years to come.
My background is in Psychology, Neuroscience, and Professional Counseling but I’ve had a lifetime of experience with meditation. I’ve been fortunate enough to spend my life studying meditation and many different eastern philosophies with people from all types of ethnic, religious/spiritual backgrounds, gender identities, and different trauma backgrounds.
I aim to provide services that make each client feel free and empowered regardless of the problems they face. I offer Cognitive Behavioral Therapy – CBT, Solution-Focused Brief Therapy – SFBT, and Narrative therapy. I’ve worked with persons from all walks of life and I’ve seen the same beautiful quality in all people. I hope to help cultivate a similar prospective with all those who seek services with me. If it resonates with clients, I use an integration of meditation/mindfulness and yoga with neuroscience concepts alongside these therapy modalities to help each client find some freedom. I look forward to getting trained in EMDR therapy in September and other trauma focused therapies in the future.
I believe successful therapy is rooted in compassion and empowerment. Clients may need guidance, but they are the experts in their own lives.
I look forward to serving you and your families.
