Ashley takes a client-centered approach to therapy, with a position that you are the expert in the room, and focuses on personal empowerment and understanding of what makes your therapeutic journey unique.
Outside of work, Ashley enjoys spending her time with family, friends, her dog, and connecting with the outdoors. Whether on a lake, in a campsite, or climbing a new mountain trail, she is always finding ways to get outside, pause, and sink into the outdoors.
