About Me

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with 6+ years of experience working with individuals with varied concerns and backgrounds, My experience in multiple settings has allowed me to develop diverse skills, build rapport and respond in an empathetic and supportive manner when working with individuals and families. I enjoy working with individuals, couples and families to address mental health, including and not limited to: depression, anxiety, eating disorders, trauma, relationship, home and work related concerns, as well as substance use and behavior management. My therapeutic approach is client-centered and goal driven, and I seek to meet the client where they are, and use an eclectic style which allows me to gain a better understanding and view from the client's perspective. Together we develop goals, identify strengths and build skills to address life's challenges and personal obstacles.

Ashley is an amazing therapist!! I never thought I would like therapy, let alone get anything out of it until I got matched with her.

Written by A.W. on Jul 03, 2021 after therapy with Ashley for 11 months on issues concerning relationship issues, and family conflicts

It's been close to a year speaking with Ashley. She has been so patient and kind. We've had some incredibly insightful conversations and I've received some invaluable advice that I plan to take me with me through all walks of life. I couldn't recommend her enough.

Extremely helpful with all needs I have asked for . If there is anything I don’t understand or asked questions about she was able to give me multiple definitions or explain until I was able understand . Great listener and gives great advise !! I will continue sessions for some time to come and stay open ! Extremely comfortable exposing problems I have without any judgement. Highly recommended

Work with me!
