Ashley is a third-year clinical counseling graduate student at Central Methodist University. She was recently awarded a fellowship by the National Board for Certified Counselors and will spend the next year learning more about how to serve minority populations as well as people recovering from substance use disorder. She has a passion for working with underserved communities and making counseling accessible for everyone.Ashley’s background is in education. She has worked as a home visitor for over eight years. During her time as a home visitor working with young children and their families, Ashley developed a passion for meeting people where they are and helping them reach their goals.Ashley strives to create a trauma-informed, judgment free, collaborative environment where her clients feel safe and empowered to explore whatever challenges have led them to counseling. Ashley believes the relationship between the client and their therapist is the biggest catalyst for change in the therapeutic process. Ashley takes a whole person approach to counseling. She believes that a person’s background, culture, and family system shapes who they are. Ashley might be a good fit for you if you are struggling with feeling anxious or depressed, experiencing issues related to parenting (including involvement in the foster care system, blending a family, or parenting a child with special needs), feeling marginalized or overlooked by society, or recovering from substance use disorder.
