I am a licensed clinical social worker in the state of Indiana with five years of experience in intensive outpatient programming and individual therapy. I have enjoyed working with anxiety, depression, trauma, motivation, self-esteem, intimacy issues, and LGBTQ+ community.
My therapy style is warm and supportive while challenging you to explore deeper. I believe therapy needs to be as unique as you are. I’m always willing to explore those uncomfortable topics with respect to your values and boundaries.
I use a mix of CBT, MI, and EMDR to create an individualized therapy experience for you. I look forward to working with you on your growth journey.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Ashley Thomas. We don’t pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.
I like her personally she is young and I feel like a certain life experience but overall I really like her
Ashley is always wonderful. She supports me and helps me work through things without giving me “shoulds” and “shouldn’ts”. It’s so nice to be able to do therapy from home.
Ashley is one of the best therapists I’ve ever had. She listens and offers advice in ways that work well for me. I also always feel comfortable with her, because it doesn’t always feel like I’m necessarily talking to a therapist, but a friend as well.
Ashley is an amazing listener who helps you get right to the source of your issues. She works with you at your pace and is always there giving a guiding hand
I just started a few months ago. Ashley has been great. The meetings are extremely casual but get to the point. I feel very comfortable talking with her. She offers good suggestions on things to do each week to make progress. I would highly recommend Ashley and I look forward to having her as my therapist for the foreseeable future!
Ashley has been extremely helpful in helping me recognize issues in my life and work through them. She is a great listener and shares her knowledge and advice without condemning or seeming judgmental.
Ashley helped me through the toughest transition in my life. I owe her a lot.
She is great
I think she is very intelligent, and she listens to everything. She is very supportive of all decisions, and very understanding.
I am happy with the quality of the advice I have been given in my first week. Our conversations flow well, and normally only stall on my account.
Ashley is great. I really feel like she listens and then helps me with whatever issues I have. I look forward to our sessions every week.
Ashley Thomas has definitely may made my first therapy experience a positive one! Just by taking the initial questionnaire to start off and identify who would be the most relatable in helping you through your journey. I was nervous to say the very least about embarking on this Betterhelp journey but Ashley made our first session an open table discussion to see where would be a good place to start. Connecting with others and how you present yourself and your boundaries is something that I've always struggle with. I have hope and see the light at the end of the tunnel with some helpful tools and tricks to bring into daily life. Definitely an eye opening experience for anyone who is considering giving therapy a try. Ashley is the best! She is very personable and open to any conversation. Ashley is also extremely knowledgeable on how to help you switch gears in your daily mindset; in order to focus on how to better yourself in the long run
Ashley has been great so far. She challenges me with thinking outside the box, and keeping the conversation rolling.
Ashley has been amazing! I am a MASSIVE overthinker and Ashley has done the best job at making things simple in a digestible way. She’s a great listener but she is also very honest in her approach. She challenges me and my thinking just enough every session!
Ashley is a wonderful listener, and I feel like our sessions are more of a conversation than me dumping my issues. It makes me feel less emotionally drained after each session. I also appreciate how Ashley offers a variety of coping and/or grounding techniques and wants my feedback to see what we should continue versus what we need to change.
It was nice working with Ashley, and she helped me understand myself and my relationship.
