She works with adolescents from the age of 15 and adult clients.
Ashley’s key areas of interest are in assessing and working therapeutically with those who may be experiencing Anxiety Disorders, Depressive Disorders, and Trauma Related Disorders. She also provides neurodiversity-affirming care for those who experience Neurodevelopmental Disorders such as Autism Spectrum Disorder, and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. Please note that at this time, Ashley does not conduct formal assessments for diagnosis of ASD or ADHD. Ashley provides support and affirmative care for people who are part of the LGTBQI+ community.
An initial session with Ashley will involve understanding your values and what your goals are and the barriers to success you are currently facing. Ashley uses a gentle and non-judgemental counselling style and works collaboratively with you to meet these goals. She is trained in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). Ashley understands that traditional talk therapy is not everyone’s cup of tea and provides additional support for clients in expressing themselves through writing, non-verbal communication, and art.
