About me

Hello! I want to commend you for reaching out for support; you have taken a major step toward finding satisfaction in your life. My name is Ashley and I am pleased to join you on this journey of growth and wellness.
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Georgia and Mississippi. I have 9 years of experience providing therapy services in many different settings including schools, clinics, and community agencies. Community health is my passion and I have dedicated my life to helping others overcome obstacles to find peace, joy, wellness, and fulfillment in life.
I am a wife and mother of three awesome children. And through personal experience, I understand how complex trauma and systemic disadvantage can affect families, generation after generation. I am happy to finally be in a position to help heal others and promote wellness in communities.
My therapeutic approach is based in Adlerian/Individual Psychology, Behavioral Counseling, and Strategic Brief Counseling. What this means is that I will work with you to develop a healthy, holistic lifestyle by analyzing your current circumstances and developing more gratifying behavior patterns. I have worked with clients struggling through mood disorders, anxiety, relationship issues, attention deficit, and career/educational advancement.
I would love the opportunity to assist with breaking down the barriers that are in your way!

**Please note, I only see clients two nights per week. If you need a therapist with more availability, this schedule may not work for you.
All the best on your wellness journey!

I went through a lot of therapists to get to Ashley and it was definitely worth the wait! She is kind, compassionate and incredibly encouraging. She made me want to go to therapy. If you are wondering whether or not to choose her, here is your sign, go for it!

I feel right at home talking to Ashley. She is very kind, genuine, and supportive. We've only had a few sessions, but I've appreciated being able to have someone like her to talk to. Her help has done a great deal for me to have perspective thru some tough moments that I'm dealing with. Thank you, Ashley!

I couldn’t be more grateful for meeting Ashley if I tried. Her words of advice and reassurance regarding my personal traumas and current situation have been enormously appreciated. It’s only been a short while since our first chat but I genuinely feel like I have progressed a lot on my journey of healing and self acknowledgment. She has also provided me with very useful information specific to my issues that I am able to continuously refer to should I hit a bump in the road. I have been able to refer a few friends of my onto this platform purely of the back of my own experience and growth. One of which has also started his own healing process. She’s kind, very attentive and listens very well. I honestly wish I had started this sooner but I am very glad that Ashley is there for me at a time where I’ve honestly needed it the most in my life.

I got to work with Ashley during a confusing and stressful time, my anxiety was spiraling out and she helped me every step of the way. She helped me get a 3rd party neutral voice to help find solutions to many different types of stressful situations. She helped me build my confidence, and whenever anxious thoughts arise, I always think "What Would Ashley Say" and it helps me center and get a handle on the situation! I couldn't have gotten here without her help!
