I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of North Carolina with over 3 years of experience working as a psychotherapist. I have worked with clients from a broad range of concerns including: anxiety, depression, self-esteem issues, relationship issues, family dynamic distresses, poor communication styles, racial discrimination in the work place, and emotional abuse. Furthermore, I have worked in the field of social work and mental health for over 8 years assisting individuals and families connect with local community agencies who aide with homelessness, domestic violence, suicide prevention, and substance use.
My counseling style is very empathetic, mindful and client-centered, yet direct and straightforward. I believe in treating everyone with respect and dignity but most importantly I pride myself on demonstrating compassion for all and being sensitive to the needs of others.
It takes a great deal of courage to seek professional help and even more courage to implement change. However, if you are ready to take the next steps to begin living a more fulfilling and self-empowered lifestyle, I’d love to help guide you along the way.
I look forward to working with you.

Ashley was my first ever therapist and it’s been a pleasure working with her. I have truly seen changes in myself that I know I couldn’t have been able to achieve on my own. She is a great listener, and she also remembers the little details that you tell her. I like that she is validating but also challenges me when I’m not being my best. As a newbie to therapy I had mixed feelings about my progress, some days were better than others but in hindsight I’m definitely a different person than when I started and wish I had done it sooner. I would highly recommend her and it’s honestly the best money I ever spent. For the first time ever I feel like my voice is truly heard and seen. Thank you Ashley!
I found Ashley in the hardest time in my life. She gave me hope when I felt most down, she gave me the safe environment to cry out and talk when I most needed it, and gave me many different understandings about myself. Her calm and caring manner was exactly what I needed to get up and believe in myself again.
Ashley has helped me immensely in my current situation. I highly recommend her!
Ashley is so lovely to work with. She's calm, comforting, and supportive. I chose her because I was looking for someone who would be really gentle and caring with me, and that's exactly her. She encourages me to consider other perspectives and work through hard things, but also validates and affirms me. I always feel more at ease after talking with her, and I've been able to see a lot of positive changes in myself during our time together.
Ashley shows a genuine interest in who I am as a person. She has been supportive throughout my entire counseling experience. She’s gentle and compassionate. She helps me realize and work towards my highest potential. She’s that positive light that everyone needs.
Ashley is absolutely amazing, caring, and attentive.
Ashley is a great counselor. She has been very understanding, compassionate and professional from the very beginning. I feel comfortable sharing my problems with her. Our live sessions have been very helpful for me and she texts me to check in with me when she knows that I am having a difficult time.
