You have already taken the first step in achieving your emotional and mental health goals by exploring Betterhelp and searching for someone to talk with. The next step is finding a therapist that you can truly connect with to establish that partnership in helping make your goals and desires for therapy a reality!
I am Ashley Brummett, a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over 18 years of experience as a Social Worker and over 10 years of experience in counseling. I have worked in a variety of settings such as Child Protection, Adults with Cognitive Disabilities, Hospice and Palliative Care, Inpatient hospital, Outpatient Mental Health Clinic, Long-term Care Facility, and Dialysis Clinics. Those settings have provided me with experience in depression, anxiety, grief/bereavement, adjustment to life changes, caregiver fatigue/stress, and coping with other challenging life events.
Personally, I have dealt with divorce, blending of families, caregiver fatigue, and grief/loss, which allows me to be especially empathetic to those circumstances. I am also a parent to teenagers!
My approach is warm and genuine. I believe in open, honest communication with no judgement. I am very compassionate and empathetic and strive to make you feel better with each interaction. I do have Christian beliefs and am more than willing to incorporate that into therapy, however, am completely comfortable if you do not want that. I will truly meet you where you are.
My availability is typically evenings and weekends, however, there may be weekdays that I can be available during the day. I am available via call, video, or text. I will typically check my messages on Betterhelp at least once each day and will respond to you as quickly as possible.
Thank you so much and I look forward to being of service to you!

After going to a few different counsellors locally and trying a couple different online therapists, I finally got a great a therapist when I was matched with Ashley. She has helped me navigate through a few different struggles I had been having for quite some time. She has an empathetic approach but comes with a good amount of life experience. She guided me with some great coping techniques and exercises for me to do but was always honest with me about what I was doing wrong. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a compassionate ear and someone who is very good at what they do. Thank you Ashley and BetterHelp!
