Anya Bury, BA
Life is a wild, joyous, frustrating, confounding thing, and we aren’t meant to go it alone. We have sought support and connection throughout our lives to understand who we are and how we fit within our smaller and bigger communities. Sometimes extra support is needed along the way. Whether you seek counseling to enrich your connection of self, create more fulfillment in life, discover ways to heal and move forward, or process a particular part of life in a comfortable space, my goal is to be with you exactly where you are.
I enter counseling from a place of empathy, compassion, curiosity, and humility and integrate them into my therapeutic style. My approach is largely relational and integrative, as each client’s needs are unique. I am inspired by existential, mindfulness, somatic, cognitive-behavioral, and systems theoretical orientations. I am dedicated to understanding and acknowledging issues of privilege, power, and oppression by utilizing trauma-informed, multicultural, and social justice lenses. As a White, non-binary, queer, sex-positive and kink-affirming counselor, I am interested in exploring how our authentic identities manifest in the counseling space.
I am a third-year graduate student in Clinical Mental Health Counseling and will be practicing under supervision. Prior to living in Seattle, I lived in Portland for a dozen years and worked with non-profits, held various service roles, and managed a confectionary kitchen. I am thrilled to be in Seattle and explore all it has to offer.
