Hello Hope! I am so glad we could connect. I want to first acknowledge and congratulate you for taking this first step towards your own personal growth and healing. My name is Ashley and I am a licensed mental health therapist in Florida. I have a master’s degree in psychology, counseling, and diagnosing. I have a strong passion for this profession and I have spent my entire career wanting to grow and learn all that I can to provide a meaningful therapeutic experience to the people I work with. I am a true believer in the power of therapy and mental health awareness is an initiative a fully support. I work with several outreach programs in the community that address adolescent mentorship, suicide prevention, trauma informed care, and human trafficking. Working with people to realize and achieve their growth is what I enjoy and I am deeply honored to be on this journey with you.
I have had the pleasure of working with clients from different ethnic backgrounds, family structures, races, sexes, sexual orientations, and religions. What I have learned is that therapy is not a “one size fits all” situation. Each person is unique and require a tailored approach to address their therapeutic needs. I have a variety of theoretical techniques and interventions that can be implemented so that your therapeutic goals are accomplished. Therapeutic techniques are important to the success of treatment, however, what is most essential is the relationship we create together during this journey.
The process of forming a relationship with my clients is definitely one of my favorite parts of therapy. Establishing trust, identifying what issues you are facing, validating your experience, and developing the plan of action to achieve your goals in therapy will take place during our first sessions. I am sure that this can seem overwhelming but I want you to know that I am already extremely proud of you for taking this first step and you are not on this journey alone. This experience is all about you! Our time together will be all about tapping into who you are and the growth you want to achieve. I want to connect with you by listening, offering support, guidance, and help you to remove those obstacles that are keeping you from your destination.
So, lets get started! I would like to know about you and why you decided to seek therapy?
