Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life? – Mary Oliver 

Since you have found yourself here, reading this, I will assume that you are one of the 7.9 billion humans on this planet struggling to make sense of our crazy world. Maybe you have found yourself feeling overwhelmed by sadness and stress. Maybe the pandemic has left you feeling anxious and alone. Maybe your relationship is bringing you more pain than joy. Maybe you have a sense that there is something more to be discovered about yourself. No matter what you are going through, you should know that you are not alone! We are all struggling to make the best of our one wild and precious life.

As a therapist intern, I will be your companion on your journey of self-exploration. I will hold space for you to be exactly who you are and support you as you grow into the person you want to be. I believe that, at our core, all people have an inner healing intelligence. Together we will create a safe container for you to access your inner wisdom and remove barriers to self-growth. 

I value diversity in my personal and professional life. I enjoy working with people from different cultures, religions, gender expressions, and sexual orientations. I practice LGBTQ+ affirmative therapy, and no topic is off the table. While I love helping people with all types of life challenges, I have additional training and experience with trauma. As part of my trauma-informed approach, I have completed phase one training in Brainspotting, a neurobiological approach to healing trauma. I also hold a Master’s degree in Organizational Development and Leadership, so I am passionate about working with people who are looking to cultivate fulfillment in their professional lives.

My early years were spent in a small, rural town in Iowa. In middle school I moved to St. Louis. This was a major culture change, but one that I am happy I went through as it has given me the opportunity to be around and experience different cultures in such a diverse city.

My professional path has also allowed me to work closely with many diverse populations and cultures. I have been in the business world for 19+ years in various roles. Through these roles and my personal life, it has led me to counseling.

I strive to create a comfortable and non-judgmental space for you to share as we work on any challenges that you face.

I focus mainly on adults, couples and families who are facing stress, trauma, anxiety, depression, intimacy issues, work related issues, career changes, and much more. These feelings and issues can cause many other issues in our life. I am here to help you explore why these feelings and issues are happening and look for healthy, positive ways to make changes in your life. We will work on self-awareness and discovery to allow you to be the best, most authentic version of yourself.

Meet Ashley
I’m here for the people who feel inadequate or overwhelmed with who they’re supposed to be.
 
You wake in the morning feeling burnt-out, over-extended, and dreading the day. Maybe your partner is unappreciative or your kids, as much as you love them, are making you question your sanity. You don’t remember who you used to be and you’re not sure where you’re going. You have a family,  you’re trying to start a family, or you’ve spent months and years questioning why everyone else is able to have the “happily ever after” but you.
 
It is possible to build a life where you feel energized, secure, and fulfilled. By focusing on making life work for you, we can iron out whatever parts of yourself feel “messy.” You can define who you are with confidence rather than falling short of life’s expectations.
 
When you come to see me, I am ready to show up and tackle the raw parts of yourself you’re tired of feeling bad about. I know you’re busy; feel free to self-schedule below or call for a consultation.

Sometimes the hustle and bustle of life can get in the way of making time for yourself. Sometimes you can feel so overwhelmed by your emotions that you freeze up, cry, or lash out at those around you. Sometimes the thing we need most in life is to be heard and understood. My goal as your therapist is to provide a safe, judgment-free space where your well-being is my top priority.
I am passionate about helping you explore your personal identity in pursuit of compassionate self-acceptance. Learning how different parts of yourself influence who you are is a challenging process, but the rewards are worth it. I want to help you learn how to navigate life with the self-love, clarity, and serenity that you deserve.
On top of helping you better understand who you are, I’m also interested in providing a space for wounds new and old to heal. My office is a place for you to talk about and work through challenging life experiences as well as complex traumas. By talking through these moments and authentically feeling your emotions in a way that best suits you, healing can be achieved.
I have experience working with depression and anxiety as well as addictions, eating disorders, and complex trauma. Through the use of a Person-Centered approach, you and I will work together to create goals that suits your wants and needs. When you feel ready to embrace yourself for who you are and love what you find, reach out! I would love to talk to you.

COUPLES & FAMILIES ONLY

Therapy can be really intimidating. A lot of us are afraid to show the raw, authentic versions of ourselves to people close in our lives, let alone a complete stranger. As a past skeptic of therapy, I am completely attuned to this feeling and aim to provide a warm, validating space for all to share personal perspectives. I like to approach therapy with a bit of humor – I feel like a little laughter and a smile can go a long way!

I focus mainly on the functioning of couples and families, including anxiety/depression, stress, intimacy issues, LGBTQIA+ experiences, multigenerational trauma, family dynamics, and much more. I’ve worked with couples encountering stress during the pandemic, LGBTQIA+ families, and aging adults with memory loss.

No one knows your pain and experiences better than you do. I like to provide a therapeutic perspective incorporating an individual, couple, and/or family’s strengths to find what works for them to increase resiliency in any situation. Book with me today to strengthen bonds and learn how to love from the inside out!
