Hi! I'm Ashley, a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in Kentucky. I received my Master's Degree from The University of Louisville and have been practicing for nearly 12 years. I love helping individuals who are struggling with depression, anxiety, grief, and difficult life transitions learn to cope in the midst of difficulty and find ways to move forward with hope.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

In our first session, we'll spend a little time getting to know each other, and then begin going over the challenges you are currently facing and would like to address. Together, we will create a plan that you are comfortable with to begin tackling the areas where you would like to see change. My goal is for you to leave the first session feeling a little more hope than before, and with some actions you can take immediately to start experiencing relief.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

It's important to me that you feel welcomed, comfortable, and heard during our time together. I have found that these are among the most important predictors of a person feeling their time in therapy has been successful. Along those lines, I am also open to feedback from you. I want to know both what's working and what's not for you from the work we do together, so that I can be the best possible support for you.

My treatment methods

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT)

I utilize CBT to assist clients in learning to identify unhelpful thought patterns and challenge them, which, over time, leads to more positive thoughts (and feelings), less negative self-talk, and overall increase in life satisfaction. It is helpful for clients working through a variety of challenges, including anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, and grief.

Grief Therapy

Grief therapy can involve a number of different treatment types, but I often use a combination of CBT and ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy) to assist clients in understanding the grieving process, identifying where they are in that process, and working through their grief in a way that is comfortable for them.

Motivational Interviewing

I utilize motivational interviewing to assist clients in identifying areas of life where they want to make changes, based on their own experiences and feelings around specific issues, and finding personal motivation to take steps toward desired change.
