About

Let's face it. Surviving ain't living! If you're ready to take action to live a life that is aligned with your values and to stop letting intense emotions and past hurts get in the way of living your best life, I can help! My name is Ashley Parker. I'm passionate about working with clients who are figuring out how to reparent themselves, "adult", and heal from relational trauma. My goal is to help my clients discover their own power to learn, heal, and grow from adversity in order to find peace, connection, and purpose. The types of therapy I use include DBT, ACT, EMDR and ego-states work rooted in attachment/relational theory.
I am a mixed-race person and feminist therapist that practices through an inclusive, anti-oppressive, anti-racist and social justice oriented lens. My style of therapy is conversational, collaborative and action-oriented. I find laughter and swearing therapeutic, and I strive to be professional while also staying real, authentic, and honest with my clients.
Beginning any new relationship, whether personal or professional, can be nervewracking. Trust me, I've been on both sides of the couch - both as a therapist as well as a client. We all have our "stuff" and I know how important it is to find a therapist who hears you and "gets it." I offer a brief 15-minute consultation call to see if we're a good fit.
