About Me

Hello! I want to commend you for reaching out for support; you have taken a major step toward finding satisfaction in your life. My name is Ashley and I am pleased to join you on this journey of growth and wellness.
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Georgia and Mississippi. I have 7 years of experience providing therapy services in many different settings including schools, clinics, and community agencies.
As a child and young adult, I faced my own challenges. Without faith, hard work and healing I would not have been able to face my obstacles and eventually establish wellness and joy in my life. I am a wife and mother of three children, currently working as an elementary school counselor and part-time clinical counselor. I have dedicated my life to helping others overcome obstacles to find peace, joy, wellness, and stronger faith in God through our Savior Jesus Christ.
My therapeutic approach is based in Adlerian/Individual Psychology, Behavioral Counseling, and Strategic Brief Counseling. What this means is that I will work with you to develop a healthy, holistic lifestyle by analyzing your current circumstances and developing more gratifying behavior patterns. This therapeutic work will include prayer and devotionals/homework based on scripture. I will assist in analyzing your current condition under the scope of what the Word says and what Jesus says about us as believers! I have worked with clients struggling through mood disorders, anxiety, relational issues, attention deficit, and career/educational advancement.
I would love the opportunity to assist with breaking down the barriers that are in your way!

Written by R.A. on Sep 19, 2020 after counseling with Ashley for 3 months

Ashley has really been a Godsend for me in a very dark time. I was going through extreme post-partum depression and anxiety. I felt completely alone and misunderstood by my partner and was considering ending my marriage. Everything seemed to be falling apart and I constantly doubted myself and my abilities as a mother. Ashley’s calm and patient guidance and counsel provided me with a different perspective. She helped me begin to reframe my negative thoughts into more neutral or positive thoughts. This helped tremendously with how I reacted to marital arguments with my spouse. She demonstrated the importance of being able to release my frustration in a healthy way using distress tolerance techniques combined with anger management techniques. These techniques allowed me time to calm myself down, know my triggers, and react more calmly and keep my composure when voicing my concerns with my spouse. Thank you Ashley working with me through this dark time. I will definitely recommend Ashley and will be requesting her if I require counselling in the future! Thank you!
