I practice with the belief that therapy can be a rich and vital exploration into understanding the deepest parts of our selves: the parts we cherish as well as the parts we want to change. We all have unconscious patterns that can get in the way of living the life we want to lead. These patterns can manifest as anxiety, depression, phobias, physical illness or pain, addiction, even rage. These symptoms can affect relationships, work, self esteem, creativity, and sexuality. Change is possible when these patterns can be expressed and understood in an open, and accepting space.

Hi I’m Bonita Ashe. You can probably relate to how much our lives have changed in the past couple of years. Before the anxiety, loneliness, and possibly occupational stresses since 2020 took hold, life was pretty static. If you find yourself wondering how to stabilize your emotions and your goal is just to “feel” again, perhaps we can talk. As a counselor I provide a compassionate and supportive environment that is conducive to healing and self-discovery. I will collaborate with you to find healthy solutions to life's struggles, while empowering you to make positive and lasting change.
