Professional statement

Ashley provides psychotherapy to adolescents, adults, couples, and families with mixed diagnostic presentations, including mood disorders, personality disorders, trauma and stressor related disorders, psychotic disorders, and intellectual disabilities. Ashley believes every client has the potential to discover new strengths and aspects of the self by uncovering and working through ineffective relational patterns, maladaptive coping skills, and overwhelming feelings and emotions. Ashley uses an eclectic approach to treatment pulling from a wide range of modalities including, psychodynamic/relational theory, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT). She is committed to bringing each client’s personal narrative into the treatment plan, while utilizing experiential elements such as creativity and play to enliven the healing process.


Message to clients

I identify as a relational therapist who helps clients develop an emotional understanding of themselves within the whole context of their lives. Clients learn to tolerate, track and make use of a broad range of affects, emotions, and feelings by drawing from modalities such as psychodynamic theory, attachment theory, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT). I search for what is distinctive and precious within every individual’s lived experience to help my clients feel empowered and whole by unearthing their own unique histories, perspectives, and capabilities. I am committed to creating a space where clients explore both devastating loss and joyful success by offering support, insight, empathy, and connectedness. My personal therapy experience has taught me healing means learning how to tolerate and accept the painful aspects along with the joyful and spectacular moments of life.
