Welcome! I am Ashley. I am a big believer in living your best life and finding the necessary ingredients that are specific to each person in order to do just that. I care about helping people find their own healing, connection, balance and vibrancy. My journey to become a Clinician was not a straight one and I believe these life experiences help me in connecting with others. I am also thrilled, I landed here!

Prior to starting my private practice, I worked in non-profits, community agencies and treatment centers for people experiencing challenges with their mental health or substance use. I have been providing individual therapy, group therapy and education class for almost 10 years. 

 

I am a Florida native whom from a young age wanted to make a difference in the world and I spent a lot time in different courses and programs trying to figure out how to do this my own way, that was in line with my values. When I am not seeing clients I enjoy spending time with my family, friends and my pup! I love being outside, gardening, reading, learning, making new recipes and running. I am also trying to learn to knit (TBD on that one!)

 

My Approach

 

I am very passionate about helping someone find overall wellness and balance. I do this with a variety of approaches including dialectical behavioral therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness, body awareness and a little bit of humor and compassion. I tend to have a more person-centered approach where I focus on treating the whole person and how thoughts feelings and behaviors influence you. Together, we identify your goals and values and frame our sessions around these. I feel my ability to meet someone where they are and ability to connect with people are some of my strongest clinical abilities.
