Hi my name is Ashley Howell, and I am a licensed clinical social worker and licensed independent social worker of clinical practice from North Carolina practicing in NC and SC, who works with those on an individual basis, as well as those that may be a part of your life such as family or those of significance to you.

My specialties include providing support to those in need with potential relationship concerns, severe anxiety, depression, emotional abuse, career challenges, burnout, caregiver fatigue, dementia and Alzheimer's Disease support, coping with life changes, grief, and bereavement, and medical related trauma. I have extensive training and history in working in a variety of medical settings over the years. I am able to provide a listening ear and assistance to those in need or in desire of services for improvement in these areas, providing resources to learn to cope with circumstances, and helping to provide clients with the best services through a variety of counseling approaches.
Utilizing Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Strengths Based Modules, Mindfulness based approaches, Solution Focused therapy, psychotherapy, Person Centered Therapy, Anticipatory Grief, and Bereavement counseling. Growing up with family members who all worked in industries that serve others, it has been instilled in me to do the same through providing a listening ear and serving others in the capacity that I know how through a variety of therapeutic evidence based approaches.
