Hello! Thank you for reaching out today. My belief is that searching for help is the first step in the process of healing and as a therapist my personal mission is to provide each client with supports, tools and a safe space to express themselves.
I attained my M.A. in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Washington Adventist University and hold a B.A. in Psychology from American University. I have worked tirelessly within inpatient, community agencies and outpatient mental health facilities with a focus on mood, personality and conduct disorders. During my employment within the inpatient mental health facility I reconstructed the behavior modification system for the child unit in collaboration with the president of the hospital and was a primary team member in the implementation of the first electronic medical record system within the hospital’s history. Since then, I have enjoyed the privilege of working with low income individuals within a community-based agency and currently manage a private practice catering to all ages.
My approach to working with children and adolescents is based in family systems theory. I value a collective approach and ask that family members become active participants in treatment for children and adolescents. I also support the integration of the community (doctors, teachers, other therapists, etc) within the process as well. As an active participant, you will be asked to be emotionally available for your child to support growth throughout the therapeutic process.
Thank you for taking the first steps toward wellness and I look forward to meeting with you soon!

Ashley is kind, caring, and thoughtful. We have had a great experience with her over the last few months. She is very responsive and understanding. Our teen has really shown great improvement and seems to enjoy her sessions with Ashley.
She’s great, simple as that.
