Ashley: I have always enjoyed listening to others and helping them in any way I could. In college I was able to work with some youth in an afterschool program and I saw the need for a therapist to help young people with what they are facing in today’s world. I felt led by the Lord to start a career in Christian counseling where I could bring my faith into practice.

Question: What kind of therapy do you love to do?

Ashley: I am a licensed professional counselor and a Nationally Certified Counselor. I see virtual and face to face clients.

Question: Who do you primarily help?

Ashley: I help children up to age 21.

Question: What interests do you have both in the therapy world and outside it?

Ashley: I have a big interest in trauma therapy and I'm taking some different courses this year to learn more about helping children cope with trauma. I also am taking some courses to learn how to help support ADHD/anxiety in the school setting.

Question: Tell us a little about you, personally ...

Ashley: I am a mom of four and enjoy hiking, going to the beach and reading. My husband and I are celebrating our 15 years of marriage this year and are truly thankful for all God has blessed us with.
