I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over 6 years of experience. I have my Master's degree in Social Work from the University of Oklahoma. I received my Bachelor's in Social from from Northeastern State University. When it comes to providing therapy, I like take a holistic approach to therapy by really looking at all areas of wellness in one's life and how we can work together to make improvements across the board. I develop strong relationships with my clients to identify the person's strengths and use those to overcome challenges, develop more positive coping skills, and live a healthier, happier life.
I tend to utilize basic Cognitive Behavior Therapy techniques, which focus on challenging negative thinking and changing your mindset. I am also a big proponent of Positive Psychology and using mindfulness techniques. I like to have fun by incorporating a variety of activities into therapy.
I am easy-going and truly enjoy helping others. I'm from Oklahoma and enjoy reading sci-fi/fantasy. I also play roller derby on a local league in town. So, if you're looking for a therapist who is relatable, a tad quirky, but likes to keep things real, then I'm your gal.

Ashley is such a great counselor! She understood what I was going through and broke down step by step on how to help. I love how she doesn’t get distracted and how she focuses on all the problems but one at a time.
Mrs. Gabriel really listens, which is something that I have needed for so long. Not only do I feel she has gotten to know me, I have also gotten to know her making me feel we have a reciprocal relationship. I feel so comfortable telling her my concerns and trust in her advice.
Ashley has been very supportive, and takes the time to know me and the situation before offering options and things for me to think about. She's been really great to talk about my problems and I feel I can tell her anything without fear of judgement or criticism... it is really that good!
She is an amazing lady! Very understanding and caring. She replies promptly with excellent advice. I would highly reccomend her.
