About me

I am licensed in Alabama with 5 years of professional work experience. Throughout my journey, I've had the privilege of working with clients from diverse backgrounds, each with their unique needs and challenges.

My passion lies in helping individuals navigate life's complexities, and I specialize in supporting clients through the most common yet profound human experiences, including grief and loss, motivation struggles, self-esteem and confidence issues, career difficulties, relationship challenges, and the daunting grip of depression and anxiety.

My therapeutic approach is best described as laid back and client-centered. I believe that you are the expert on your own life, and my role is to provide a safe and non-judgmental space where you can explore your thoughts and feelings openly. Together, we'll collaborate to develop strategies that align with your goals and values, empowering you to make meaningful changes in your life.

If you're seeking a therapist who combines experience with a compassionate, client-focused approach, I'm here to support you on your journey towards a happier, healthier, and more fulfilling life. Let's embark on this path of self-discovery and growth together.

Written on Jan 25, 2024 after therapy with Ashley for 3 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, self esteem, career difficulties, and coping with life changes

I absolutely love Ashley! She knows how to match your energy and never makes me feel like something is wrong with me. She’s kind of like a third eye, no matter how self aware I think I am, I always find out something new when I talk to her. 10/10 would recommend!
