Avery Neal is a psychotherapist, international author and speaker, and founder of Women’s Therapy Clinic. When she opened the clinic in 2012, she realized a lifelong dream of creating a place that specialized in women, providing help with depression, anxiety, divorce recovery, emotional abuse, relationship issues, postpartum depression, and more.
“Every person has their own unique story, and we customize therapy to the individual,” Avery shares. “People often believe that they are alone in their struggles, but they are not. Life struggles are more common than you might think.”
Award-winning Women’s Therapy Clinic is a safe, accepting, and compassionate environment where women are given the encouragement and space they need to express themselves and experience emotional healing.
“Especially now, during the pandemic, it’s not uncommon to feel isolated and overwhelmed,” Avery says. “Anxiety and depression have increased because we’re social creatures, wired to connect with others and experience human interaction.”
Avery offers in-person, virtual, and phone therapy sessions. She’s added to her popular online course library found at AveryNeal.com/courses-and-resources. Her book, If He’s So Great, Why Do I Feel So Bad?: Recognizing and Overcoming Subtle Abuse, helps women recognize the warning signs of psychological abuse. Her articles and interviews have been published by Oprah.com, DailyOM, Best Self Magazine, Hitched Magazine, Bustle, POPSUGAR and PKWY Magazine, and her courses have been taken by over 17,000 people worldwide. The International Association of HealthCare Professionals nominated her as one of the top psychologists in Houston.
