Life and relationships can be challenging, am I right?
Perhaps we all need a little help at times overcoming these challenges.
I am a Nationally Certified and Professional Counselor with experience treating Drug and Alcohol and Mental Health challenges and obstacles individuals and families may face.
My belief is we all have the ability to make changes and improvements in our lives, and some of the most challenging experiences can lead to valuable insights and the opportunity for self-growth.
I also respect we all have differences, therefore, being seen and heard without judgement by another can be one of the most healing experiences we can have.
My goal is to empower you to find solutions, learn new ways, explore your strengths, work toward healing from past experiences, and stay focused on becoming the best version of yourself that you can be.
I wish to be a collaborative guide who helps you gain self-awareness, view your thoughts and life in a more positive way, and develop strategies to cope and regulate your emotions in a healthy manner. I will encourage you through the process of gaining greater self-confidence, self-compassion, a stronger sense of identity, and trusting your own decisions.
I consider myself to be a strong community and social services professional who holds a Master of Arts - MA focused in Clinical Mental Health Counseling and a Bachelor of Arts - BA focused in Clinical Mental Health Psychology from Edinboro University of Pennsylvania.
I draw from many evidence-based theories, including Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy; Person-Centered Therapy; Emotion-Focused Therapy; Psychodynamic Therapy; Narrative Therapy, & Mindfulness practices.
I've worked with couples and families aged 4 through 88 experiencing depression, anxiety, stress, addiction, ADHD, trauma, loss, behavioral, emotional, and developmental challenges, among others.
"Before every session I take a moment to remember my humanity. There is no experience this man has I cannot share with him, no fear I cannot understand, no suffering I cannot care about, because I too am human." -Carl Rogers

She was very helpful and kind. We really appreciated her taking the time to reach out to us. We would recommend her to others.
I am very happy with Ashley!
I highly recommend Ashley. I’ve been going through some of the toughest things I’ve ever encountered and Ashley has definitely helped me so much. Obviously, counselors are there to support and listen to you, but she does a great job connecting with you and making it feel personal, more like a friend than a counselor.
She has been extremely understanding and patient with the details of my relationship... she listens and assesses the situation after hearing both sides and always remains neutral.
