Delaina Harris
Delaina HarrisMasters of Counseling Intern
My name is Delaina, and I am an intern working towards my Masters in Clinical Mental Health Counseling at UCCS, graduating in May 2024. I received bachelor’s degrees in Sustainability and Sociology from Arizona State University in 2016. Since then, I have worked with children, adolescents, and young adults at various capacities: a horticulture therapy and rites of passage treatment program, independent life skills training for transitional-age youth in foster care, and within school-based behavioral health settings. I also have extensive experience helping individuals and families navigate the foster care system and advocating with clients to get their needs met. 

I strive to create a collaborative, compassionate, and down-to-earth therapeutic atmosphere aimed toward helping clients reach alignment in their inner and outer worlds. I use an Integral approach to counseling that considers how various life events contribute to development in all areas of a person’s life. Together, I work alongside you to explore your values, wants, needs, and goals to reach an optimized version of yourself. I see each person’s life as a continual unfolding process and trust in the innate wisdom we each hold towards healing. 

In my spare time, I enjoy cooking, dancing, hosting dinner parties with friends, camping, and going on spontaneous road trips!
