“Your present circumstances don’t determine where you can go; they merely determine where you start.” - Nido Qubein
Clinical Mental Health Counselor
Are you feeling challenged, overwhelmed, or having trouble coping? I would be honored to be a part of your journey of empowerment and to help you feel in control of your life regardless of the mental health challenges you are dealing with. Through active collaboration, we will establish a safe environment for you to uncover, label, and resolve your emotions. Together, we will get you to be your best self so that you can victoriously overcome those inner struggles.
I am a mental health counselor experienced in working with individuals who struggle with substance abuse, and severe, persistent mental illnesses. I specialize in helping BIPOC women and military veterans who have suffered intergenerational and institutional trauma to heal and thrive. I also treat a range of disorders such as PTSD, anxiety, and depression.
Give me a call to schedule a brief phone session to discuss your needs. I look forward to meeting you and exploring suitable treatment goals. Please note that all sessions are conducted via telehealth.
More About Ashley
I am Jamaican-American; First generation American. I grew up in a traditional Jamaican household around people that believed in helping the collective rather than the individual. My dad always told me that I had a servant's heart and I held on to that throughout the various seasons of my life. While I served in the Air Force, I completed my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from Saint Leo University. I completed my Masters of Arts in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Northwestern University in December 2020. Outside of my private practice, I am a wife, mother, coauthor of the book 101 Thought-Provoking Questions for the Everyday Therapist (coming 2022), co-host of the podcast That's Random, and academic researcher. When I'm not juggling different hats, I enjoy cooking, reading, listening to music, and hanging out with my friends and family.
