About

My name is Ashley and I am a healer, therapist, doula, and educator. I am fueled by my charge: to walk alongside Black and Brown femmes as they continue on the ever-evolving process of self-discovery, making adjustments to live in alignment with their desires and express themselves the most authentically. I believe that choosing to heal is a radical act of self-love. I am a Licensed Social Worker and in my practice, I center and prioritize the experiences and healing of Black and Brown Femmes (women, girls). I serve as a guide as clients navigate back to a space of remembering the inherent truths of who they are and desire to be.
I work with folks looking to grow in personal discovery and offer a loving, gentle space to explore self and live in that authentically. I serve as a mirror of the fundamental truths your heart knows: you are worthy, you are enough, you are beautiful, and you have everything you need to get what you want from this life.
First of all, shout out to you for prioritizing YOU and I welcome you back to all pieces of yourself you may have left behind or haven’t discovered (yet!). Again, I center and prioritize Black and Brown Femmes! Our space is unapologetically Black, Queer, and Loving (PERIODT). If that feels good to your Spirit then schedule a consultation and let’s chat more.
