We are thrilled to announce that Ara O’Hayre will be joining the Denver Counseling Options team in January! Ara is currently a 3rd year graduate student in the Marriage and Family Therapy program at Regis University. In addition to finding joy in therapeutic work, Ara also finds joy in being a mother. She enjoys cooking dinner with her son, watching movies, and spending Saturday afternoons at the museum.
Starting in January, Ara will be offering $25 individual therapy sessions and $40 couple sessions. Space is limited, so contact us now to be added to her waitlist at firstname.lastname@example.org or 720.432.2813.
Check out this video to learn more about Ara’s favorite part of being a therapist (hint: it involves aha moments). Ara also discusses the development of her empathetic side as a child and how that led her to become a therapist in the present day. She emphasizes that she truly enjoys working in Marriage and Family Therapy and the non-finger pointing perspective it gives her whereby “When we’re going through difficult situations in life, we don’t look at it like there’s something wrong with the person.” And finally, Ara hopes that people who are considering therapy for the first time understand that she is not here to judge them, but rather to walk alongside them in this part of their life’s journey.
In case you haven’t seen it, we also learned about Ara’s favorite kind of pizza, her favorite quote, and her style of therapy in this video.
