I have a Masters degree in clinical psychology and have been a counselor. Over the last 50 years I have been a client of counselors numerous times who have different modalities. Without a great deal of flash, and in a matter of fact way, Ashely is one of or the most capable and helpful counselors I have ever worked with.
Ashley has helped me with every area of my life. She's not afraid to dive into any topic, and I always come away feeling much better than before speaking to her. She's also a great listener and supporter, so I come away from every session feeling lighter and more confident.
Great working with Ashley, she gives me good strategies to work on areas of difficulty and is very supportive. I have trust in her style of counselling.
Ashley is wonderful and really helps my fiance and I.
Ashley has done a good job of understanding the pace at which I have wanted to proceed, while giving me an understanding of what future directions
for the counseling sessions might look like.

She’s just awesome. Calming, insightful and flexible. I’m not easy but, she’s sticking to me. Thank you
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 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!
