Therapy with Ashley
It takes a lot of courage to be on this page considering therapy. Life can be stressful, and I’m sorry if you are currently struggling. If you’re here you may be having difficulties within your relationship(s), wanting assistance further exploring your identity, or wanting to learn some coping skills for dealing with your current circumstances.
Everyone’s situation is unique, however, common difficulties include:
- Managing depressive or anxiety-based symptoms
- Learning to love yourself despite identifying with a stigmatized community
- Having interpersonal/ relationship issues
Our work together will comprise of:
- Learning skills for creating and maintaining healthy thought patterns
- Improving our capacity to listen and reflect as a means for strengthening relationships
- Identifying your personal strengths and skill sets in order to affirm who you are and empower you to live your best life
I practice from a Cognitive Behavioral Therapy framework. I am excited to begin this journey with you and anticipate that our time together will promote a deeper understanding and appreciation for the self, the ability to foster and maintain healthy relationships and equip you with the coping skills necessary to manage the ups and downs that are inevitable in life.
Want to see if we’re a good fit? Give me a call or email and we can discuss your concerns in detail.
