Hi! My name is Ashleigh. I am a Licensed Professional Mental Health Counselor in the state of Ohio (and soon to be licensed in Florida). I have over 15 years experience working with adults, adolescents, couples, and families. I have worked in private practice, crisis center, hospital and school settings. I have the most counseling experience in areas of depression, anxiety, couples therapy, identity issues, LGBT related stressors, grief/loss, eating disorders/dysmorphia, family therapy and stress management.
My style of counseling is a CBT, client centered, and solution-focused. I believe in providing a safe environment as a way to encourage open communication. I will walk alongside my clients to help empower them to help themselves feel better, find hope, and reach goals.
Here is some personal information about me: I have been married for 16 years and we have 2 young children. I was born and raised in small town Ohio, but our family recently moved to SW Florida for my husband's career. I wanted to become a counselor after the experience I had in counseling during college. As a freshman, I had an extremely difficult time coping with being away from my family and the added pressure of school, working, and being an athlete. I became anxious, withdrawn, lost my appetite, and could not sleep. My counselor helped me overcome my anxiety and improve my health and refocus. Today I cope with stress through exercise, going to the beach, long showers, and talking openly with my spouse and closest friends.
Even before Covid-19, I left my in-person practice and decided to enter the world of online counseling. I think it is a great option for those with busy schedules, lack of transportation, a transient life-style, no babysitting, or those who feel more comfortable emailing, texting, or chatting virtually.
I would be honored to help you establish and reach your goals to create a healthier you!
