Welcome! For the last five years, I have been working in a community mental health setting with all ages and backgrounds. In doing so, I have gained experience in bettering the lives of people with depression, anxiety, phobias, trauma, bipolar disorders, personality disorders, obsessive compulsive disorder, eating disorders, relationship issues, family conflicts, self-esteem issues, addictions and many others. My passion for counseling is driven by the small changes that lead to remarkable discover. In using Cognitive Behavior Therapy, your thoughts will lead the way in new behaviors and an improved mood. My care and compassion helps others feel safe and comfortable when expressing themselves or when providing a trauma narrative. Social work is at my core, allowing us to find solutions that create harmony for you, your health, your family, your goals, your community, and your enjoyment.

I am so thrilled to be matched with Ashley Hutchens. I had lots of reservations about getting assigned a counselor, but when I read Ashley's profile I knew it was going to be a good fit. She is extremely educated and also so kind and supportive. I look forward to our sessions every week.
She does a really great job of keeping me on track and giving me coping strategies to help manage my problems. She is easy to talk to and listens very well.
Ashley did in one session what 15 weeks of therapy didn't. She listens to what you need, and doesn't go by a textbook to help you - she tailors her suggestions and conversation entirely to you. I feel really positive about my mental health improving through sessions with her.
Ashley is really open minded, understanding and supportive. I feel she really listens to my concerns, and I never feel judged by her. She gives me brilliant practical advice, and she is available when I need to talk to her.
Knowledgeable, listens, understands, helps. She's very good at reminding me of the things I need to hear to get my head where it needs to be. When my thoughts start to wonder she reminds me to stop and think of the stuff her and I have gone over to conteract that.
She is great. Very sensible, relatable, and perceptive. She asks tough questions that make me think and evaluate my feelings and thoughts deeper.
Ashley Hutchens has been a great counselor through the Better Help program. We have only been meeting for a couple of weeks, but she has been able to quickly assess my concerns and offer practical solutions/techniques. She is amply available through messaging and video. I highly recommend her!
