Professional statement

Ashlee Reilly-Hunt is a Licensed Master Social Worker located in NY. Ashlee enjoys working with individuals who would like to improve their mental health in relation to their mind-body connection. This focus includes clients with chronic illnesses, significant medical events, eating disorders, body image challenges, skin picking, hair pulling, trauma, or gender dysphoria. Many of Ashlee’s clients feel chronic pain, whether it is physical or emotional pain. Ashlee is particularly passionate about working with female-identifying clients in their twenties, thirties, or forties.

To support her clients, Ashlee utilizes a strength-based, person-centered approach. She believes that each individual she works with has unique traits that make them resilient, and this resilience can be harnessed for continual growth. She practices trauma-informed therapy modalities, ensuring that all clients feel safe in session as they talk about difficult topics. She incorporates mindfulness practices into sessions and encourages clients to become aware of their somatic reactions to emotions. Clients learn more about the origins of their emotional distress, explore past memories, and connect those memories with current functioning. Additionally, clients learn skills that they can use to support themselves in the here and now.

Ashlee is an LGBTQIA+ and gender affirming therapist who is body- and fat-positive in her work. She’s sex-positive, culturally conscious, and never shies away from a conversation about social justice and the impact of structural inequalities on her client’s mental health. Her goal is to provide clients with a compassionate space where they can be vulnerable and, in turn, experience personal growth and healing.

Ashlee offers the convenience and flexibility of remote sessions to make it easier to prioritize therapy in a busy world. She is currently welcoming new clients across New York State.


Message to clients

Our mental and physical health is inextricably linked, and when something happens to one side of the equation, it can also frequently impact the other.

It may feel like your mind, body, or both are betraying you. Maybe you think that you’re a burden or that you can’t share what you’re experiencing with the people in your life, whether due to fear, shame, or believing that they’re sick and tired of hearing about your struggles. You might be experiencing something chronic that changes not only your current daily life but also how you envisioned your future. Or maybe you’re wondering, “Why am I doing this to myself and my body?” All of this might feel overwhelming, scary, shameful, isolating, lonely, frustrating, or hopeless.

If this resonates, I’m here to tell you you’re not alone. I ensure that therapy is a safe space where you can freely process your experiences, fears, and dreams. My hope for you is that you find a feeling of safety and relief in both your mind and body. I invite you to have a brief phone consultation, free of charge, where we can connect and see if working together would be a good fit at this point in your healing journey.
