Welcome! I am passionate about helping adults and adolescents transform their lives through healing anxiety, trauma, and suffering associated with difficult life events.
I blend evidence-based practices of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Trauma-Based EMDR, and Emotionally Focused Individual Therapy (EFIT) to create a tailored therapeutic approach that meets my client’s individual needs.
Those I've worked with have praised my genuine nature combined with a heartfelt sense of humor.
Thank you for taking the time to get to know me. I know that searching for a therapist can feel daunting, so when you feel ready, I invite you to reach out to connect with me directly via the contact form.

Social Anxiety Therapy.
"You are truly a joy, I am a better person just by knowing you. You have helped me climb out of a pit, I am so happy for you & all your new clients to come. You have a gift."

Trauma & Anxiety Therapy.
"Thank you for all of your time over these last two years. You have been my favorite therapist and I have never seen so much progress in my mental health until I began working with you.
I looked forward to every single session and I can't thank you enough for everything you have done for me. I wish you all the best in your career and know you will continue to change lives as you did mine. I hope to reconnect in the future."
Graduated Adult Client,
"I had the pleasure of working with Ashley for just over a year and a half. During that time I witnessed clients of all ages find peace. Her ability to help those grieving, facing trauma and teenagers challenged by the complexities of life came naturally to her.
The only challenge with Ashley was her caseload was always full. It was also difficult for her to turn seeking clients away. She immediately notified us when she had spots available. I was over the moon when I was informed she transitioned to her own private practice. Well deserved."
