Ashley is so personable and is able to relate to my circumstances in ways people in my daily life cannot and that means so much. I feel like she understands my issues and does as much as possible to help me cope with any and all obstacles I have on a daily basis. She has been such a safe place for me to discuss life issues that I’ve never been able to talk with friends or family about. I can say that I will without fail be continuing therapy with Ashley as long as is necessary!

Ashley listens to my issues and provides me the steps to address them and validates me when I need it without validating my bad decisions.

I can tell that Ashley loves her job and it shows! For those of you looking for someone that cares, look no further. I feel respected, my concerns validated, and disconnected from my anxiety after every session.

She is so relaxing to talk to, I've rented and raved about all sorts of things but she takes it in stride and really helps me get it all off my chest and work through the problems
