I work with clients who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual , transgender or queer.
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker practicing in the Capital Region through Telehealth. Working with clients, I take a person-centered, strength-based approach. I like meeting clients where they are and helping them to set up practical and tangible goals that make the most sense to them. I believe one's true self is embedded in authenticity and compassion, and one's life flourishes through embracing who we really are. I enjoy helping couples, partners and families achieve a greater sense of unity and satisfaction in their lives through Emotionally Focused Therapy and Family Systems Therapy.

NOTE- I am chronically ill. This WILL impact the support you receive.......................Therapy and reaching out for support is hard, especially being a part of the LGBTQ+ community because of the marginalization and oppression experienced when seeking this support. I am actively working to change that narrative and provide a space where you can be 100% authentically yourself without fear or judgment. YOU are the leader in your mental health journey and you deserve to feel that way. Unpacking trauma, learning to communicate, and setting boundaries are things that I enjoy working with people on, though there are many other things.

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 believe that healing of self lays the foundation for showing up authentically in relationships, doing fulfilling work, raising courageous and caring children, and building a more just and safer world for all. I believe that healing of self requires cultivating mind/body states that allow for joy, play, curiosity, and connection. I believe healing of self often means recognizing the ways in which we have been misled, harmed, and/or abused by larger social systems which were not designed for human thriving.

New daytime openings as of 11/7/22- I'm passionate about working with young adults, teens, women, and people exploring their gender and sexual identities. I specialize in trauma and the many ways the brain and body adapt to it. Many of my clients experience anxiety, OCD, difficulties in relationships, low self-esteem, life transitions, and are members of the LGBTQ+ community. I will see you as a whole person - complex, evolving, and inherently worthy. Together, we'll create a safe space for you to connect with your inner resilience and continue moving towards what matters most, regardless of fear and uncertainty.

We are all attempting to cope with life's continuous changes, but our ability to cope can be affected during times of stress. As a therapist, I aim to support and empower you as you navigate through anxiety, past traumatic experiences, or life transitions. It is possible for you to identify and shift patterns of thoughts and behaviors that leave you feeling stuck. It is possible to create meaningful change and to heal.

Hey, welcome. I know the process of trying to find the right therapist can feel overwhelming. When I’ve looked for therapists for myself or as referrals for others, what I generally want to know is who the therapist is, what kind of person they are. Will they get me? Will they judge me? Are they going to actually call me on my stuff, but, in a nice way? These questions make sense. Therapy is vulnerable, it can be raw and real in ways we generally aren’t, even in very close relationships. Change is often hard and sometimes really scary but if you’re ready, I will meet you there.

Sometimes it can feel like our reactions to difficult experiences begin to control our lives, leading to shutting down, lashing out or coping in ways that cause harm to ourselves and others. Life stressors, systems of oppression and navigating relationships may cause us to become disconnected from our own needs. Although this can be discouraging and overwhelming, I believe that we all have what we need within us to discover new ways of being. Therapy provides an opportunity for renewed connection and strengthening self-compassion.

If you are seeking therapy at this point in your life, you may be feeling that your usual way of coping isn't working anymore. This may lead to you feeling alienated and lonely, frustrated and angry, hopeless, confused, striving for perfection, or otherwise stuck. It may simply be that your usual way of being is made up of out-of-date strategies - what was once adaptive is now causing you stress and unnecessary suffering. Let me help you learn how to start relaxing the struggle. Our work together will provide an opportunity for self-knowledge, tolerance for difficult emotions, and acceptance of your own humanity.

Starting the therapy process can be difficult, frustrating, and downright overwhelming! It's often challenging to find a provider that forms a meaningful connection with you, while also possessing the knowledge and skills necessary to offer the treatment that best suits your needs. I strive to be a therapist that can do both. My approach begins with collaboration and connection; I want to take time to explore your goals and obstacles, while also getting to know you as a person. You are the expert on your life, so I view therapy as a collaborative team approach that allows me to serve as a supportive guide.

What type of Albany mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Albany?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
