Reviews

Written by A.S. on Jan 12, 2021 after counseling with Ashley for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, parenting issues, self esteem, career difficulties, coaching, and compassion fatigue

I appreciate all the time and care that I have received since the beginning therapy. Ashley is a great listener and very trustworthy and empathetic. She has helped me more than I could’ve possibly imagined over the last few months and I don’t know how I would be doing without her support.
