I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker licensed in Nevada and Maine with over 9 years of experience working with individuals, families, children and couples. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including stress and anxiety, relationship difficulties, coping with grief and loss, life changes, parenting challenges and depression. I have also worked as a therapist in foster care and with families who have medically fragile children.
I approach every person and their area of concern as unique and provide help from a non-judgmental lens. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. My approach utilizes ideas from cognitive-behavioral, narrative, person centered and humanistic theories. All of our dialogue and the treatment plan will be tailored to meet your specific and unique needs.
It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards change. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you!

I am so grateful for Ashley. I always feel heard, understood, and I appreciate the way she skillfully offers me new positive ways to think about things or challenges negative thinking patterns. She’s helped me to break through some barriers and is actively helping me put bad habits to rest and pick up new healthy ones. Without her guidance and support, I wouldn’t be able to move closer to a place of peace and joy.

Ashley is a perfect fit for me. I feel so comfortable speaking with her. We have only had two sessions, but I have been able to message her in between. I am so thankful for her and her listening skills. I am so very happy I find her through Better Help.
