Do you feel a bit lost, down in the dumps, or as if life has thrown you one too many curveballs lately? Now imagine how it would be not to worry constantly, to have the strength to do things again. As a licensed MFT, I focus on promoting change and growth in individuals, couples, and families who are experiencing difficulties. I approach therapy in a holistic manner by supporting clients in setting goals, solving problems, and changing unhelpful patterns while providing empathy and practical feedback. Among my areas of expertise are anxiety, depression, ADHD, trauma, stress, coping with loss, adjustment to life changes, & parenting.
Distressing symptoms, whether they be depression, anxiety, a sense of meaninglessness, addictions, or behavior problems can be painful and debilitating. As your therapist, I consider it my job to help you understand and utilize such symptoms as opportunities for growth. With the help of effective therapy, in fact, periods of stagnation and despair can serve as catalysts that allow us to discover previously unknown levels of happiness, prosperity, and inner peace. As your symptoms diminish, together we will work towards expanding your capacity for work, love, and creativity. I offer a free initial consultation period for all new patients.
Welcome! I applaud you for beginning the search for a therapist. Maybe you have found your way here because you are going through a tough time. Possibly you are feeling more anxious or depressed than usual. Perhaps an important relationship is causing you stress. Or maybe you have just decided to learn more about yourself. Whatever the reason, I want to understand your story and who you are.
I believe that therapy should be an adventure of discovery, of deepening access to one's authentic self, and of growing fulfillment. I strive to create a warm, compassionate and enlivening environment to help you explore where you are and where you want to be. I love to meet my clients at their growing edge and very much value their feedback in the therapeutic process.

This has been a challenging two years for the all of us, and certainly many of us are re-evaluating our values, goals and well-being. Together, we can find meaning and the impetus to propel us forward towards a full expression of who we can be. In this exploration we can look at how our interpersonal relationships, creative careers, family history, sexuality, past traumas, financial life, unwanted behaviors/addictions as well as our emotional, intellectual and physical health intersect. Throughout I create a safe, supportive environment used to discover, nurture and empower new insights, options, and solutions.

Hello and welcome!

I work psychodynamically with individuals and couples who want to heal past traumas and pain in order to achieve greater self-awareness, acceptance, and freedom.

Hi, I'm Ashley, a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with over 13 years of experience working with adults, couples and families affected by substance use disorders, trauma and acute mental health disorders. I have worked in a variety of clinical settings which include residential, outpatient, community mental health, private practice and teaching graduate students in an adjunct role.
I provide therapy to patients of all ages suffering with anxiety and depression. I help patients going through life transitions. Within a trusting therapeutic relationship, the exploration of dreams and unconscious drives proves effective for a deeper understanding of challenges and blocks. Psychoanalytic, Psychodynamic, Gestalt, Play Therapy, Sand Tray and Art are theories that are core to my approach.
I have over 13 years of clinical experience across a variety of settings including outpatient clinics, residential treatment programs, crisis interventions, forensic programs, nonprofits and private practice. I have provided clinical and administrative supervision to students, interns and professionals.
The life that we live these days is drastically impacted by the ongoing pandemic and capitalistic mindset, which results in stress and inability to manage our emotional needs. With the stress, trauma experiences including but not limited to childhood abuse, physical abuse, intimate partner violence, sexual violence, racial and social traumas takes toll on our bodies. This often shows up as fatigue, sadness, anxiety, overthinking, thoughts of self-harm and disables us from our lives. In such times we all can use a trauma informed and nonjudgmental external support to help us heal from root causes of these symptoms.
Life sure can throw you some curveballs, can't it? If you're going through a difficult life transition, or just haven't been feeling quite like yourself lately, working with a therapist can help. It can be difficult to see your problems clearly and work through them effectively when you're "in the muck." I enjoy helping clients through difficult times, whether they are circumstantial or mood-related. I work primarily with adults who are experiencing depression or anxiety and couples with relational difficulties. I have specialized training treating trauma and working with entertainment industry professionals and creatives.
I have a team of pleasure-positive therapists and coaches. Our focus is on empowerment, celebrating your differences, finding real-life solutions, finding your voice, and creating acceptance towards healthier attitudes around sexuality, race and gender, centering the voices of BIPOC, LGBTQIA, gender variant, kink, non-monogamous, polyamorous, BDSM, sex worker and and the intersectionality of all or any. We prioritize dismantling harmful societal messages, while empowering you to have more fulfilling and flourishing relationships. As a full team of coaches therapists, we offer different specialties, experiences, schedules and fees.
Many of the people who consult with me identify as artists, writers, filmmakers, educators, activists, sex workers, queer, transgender, nonbinary, polyamorous/non-monogamous, or are living in resistance to social norms in one way or another. Problems can seem to take over our lives when we choose live near the edges of what's deemed "acceptable," "respectable," or even "healthy."
Life can be full of transitions that can be rewarding, chaotic and unpredictable. Whether positive or negative, certain life events can leave many of us feeling emotionally paralyzed. Having been there myself, I understand that it can be difficult trying to find balance while navigating through life demands. When faced with challenges and shortcomings, please know that “You” are not alone. Reaching out for help is an act of courage that is necessary to cultivate lasting change.
