Ashley (she/her) believes people desire to improve and reach their goals and that talking with a supportive clinician helps clients to do that by assisting them to process thoughts and feelings. This in turn helps clients to gain new insights, perspectives, and understandings, leading to a healthier mental/emotional existence.

Ashley seeks an empathetic and non-judgmental understanding of a client’s situation to collaboratively inspire hope and gain tools needed to move forward. Ashley further believes that helping clients to reduce negative self-talk and challenging thoughts and feelings can enable them to achieve their goals and live lives that reflect their values.

Ashley is working towards a Masters Degree in Counselling through City University of Seattle in Canada where her capstone topic is how couples support each other as they grieve perinatal loss. The modalities of Ashley’s integrative approach to therapy include: * Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) * Existential Therapy * Narrative Therapy * Solution-Focused Therapy * The Gottman Method

Ashley specializes in assisting individuals with their transition into parenthood. Whether someone is newly pregnant, has recently welcomed a little one, or is suffering from adversity in growing their family, Ashley can affirm how they feel in these hard and overwhelming experiences, and provide strategies to help face the “hard stuff” of parenthood. Couples may especially benefit with finding ways to increase communication and intimacy in their relationships as they now take on the roles of both partners and parents.
