About me

Hi! My Name is Ashley Daugherty. I am an LISW-S with a national license issued by the state of Ohio and I have a MSW in Social Work. I have 8 years of counseling experience, with 4 years being post-graduate. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including trauma, depression, anxiety, family conflicts, coping with grief and loss, social behavior, and crisis counseling.

I am experienced in many counseling techniques and find myself to have an open minded compassionate approach. My counseling style and approach is Holistic/Integrative. The first few sessions start out with a person-centered therapy approach. It is important to establish a trusting, ethical, therapeutic relationship by form of congruence, unconditional positive regard, and empathy in the beginning. Sometimes a person-centered approach leads the client to discover the answers for themselves. However, the information collected in the first few sessions may lead to a better suited theory. I feel that issues like depression or anxiety can be helped with cognitive behavioral therapy. I find dialectical behavior therapy techniques to be useful in a counseling setting as well. My counseling style and approach really depends on the client and what best fits the situation. Person-centered therapy, CBT, and DBT have been my main approach and style.

Whether you are seeking change for a healthier happier life, or just need a non judgmental ear to listen, I am here to support and empower you. I look forward to working with you!

I feel like I am understood and listened to. She gives me the resources I need and is incredibly quick with responding to any messages! If she doesn't hear from you for a short period of time she ensures that she contacts you to see if everything is okay. I recommend her to everyone looking for a wonderful and friendly compassionate therapist!
