About My Clients

Many of the challenges Ashley's clients face are around developing a healthier self-relationship, relationships with others, as well as work and school-related stressors/burn-out. These types of challenges may be compounded with oppression and marginalization, low motivation, significant life transitions, low job satisfaction, and unresolved grief. Ashley's clients find that these circumstances impact their ability to stay focused on achieving personal development and life goals.

My Background and Approach

I incorporate holistic, non-pathologizing inclusive orientations to support the diversity found in the human experience. Validating your experience with overt and covert forms of oppression and marginalization. I create a space that encourages you to view yourself as a "whole person" greater than the sum of the challenging experiences you have lived through by supporting you to develop greater self-compassion and love. Clients will have the space to share their life experiences through narration using the power of these stories to help them to externalize their personal challenges within a larger sociocultural context. Humans are inherently imperfect. The daily journey of life causes us to need to commit to learning new behavior-change strategies that support psychological flexibility and mindfulness that then empower us to progress. My holistic practice is evidence-based and together we will co-create a customized treatment plan that will support your unique needs and goals.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

​I’m a firm believer that systemic racism causes extensive trauma throughout society and is a public health issue. As a trauma-informed provider, I believe I am responsible for my part in dismantling systemic racism and practicing cultural humility. I have experienced my own forms of suffering from the negative impacts of racism, oppression and marginalization. Through my own time in therapy, I have learned the tools to help with managing my thoughts, emotions and behaviors when life begins to feel heavy. My therapeutic journey strengthened my resiliency skills so that I did not feel so out of control with the people in my life I could not control. I want to be a part of that healing process for other people who are going through similar experiences of low self-esteem, etc., and feel like there is no way out.

I offer online counseling in the following states:
