Ashley Williams

(LCSW)

About Me

Hi! My name is Ashley and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the State of Florida.

Over the years, I've worked in a wide range of settings, including: child welfare, foster care and adoption, substance abuse treatment, cancer and chronic illness care and recovery, and within the prison system. I work primarily with clients and caregivers affected by trauma or secondary trauma, depression, anxiety, substance abuse, and those coping with grief, loss, compassion fatigue, or other life changes.

I received both by undergraduate and graduate degrees in South Florida from Florida Atlantic University.

My approach to therapy is client centered and trauma informed. I believe clients are the experts in their own lives and thus should determine the direction and depth of therapy. Through a strengths-based and solutions-focused lens, I draw on multiple treatment modalities to guide clients in identifying strengths and developing treatment plans that accomplish their goals.

I recently started working with Ashley, and have been really please with how things are going. We are only a few sessions in. She explains things well and gives great feedback. Looking forward to our work ahead.

I can't imagine navigating grief with another counselor on my side. Ashley is down to earth, kind, funny and incredibly skilled at her approach and interactions. She is a reliable communicator and competent clinician. She is able articulate grief processes and provides resources that are realistic and helpful. I am so very grateful she is on staff and I am able to access her through this platform. Highly recommend her with 1000% certainty.
