Therapy with Ashley
Are you struggling to adjust to a life transition, such as becoming a parent? Do you find it difficult to accept yourself and your imperfections? Do you struggle to meaningfully connect with your family and friends?
Ashley would be grateful for the opportunity to work with you to explore these types of presenting questions, and she is particularly passionate about working with women during their pregnancies and postpartum period. When you are ready to take a step toward improved mental well-being, Ashley’s therapeutic style, focused on creating a safe and strength-focused space for individuals to be holistically heard and understood, is an ideal environment to process and grow. Ashley’s approach is most strongly influenced by attachment theory, cognitive-behavioral perspective, and mindfulness framework. Ashley believes the best therapy is collaborative and therefore welcomes ongoing feedback so she can adapt her approach to meet your individual strengths and needs.
