About Me

Thank you for sharing information about yourself. I'm so happy that you reached out for help.

I am a National Certified Counselor (NCC), a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC), and I hold a doctorate in Counselor Education and Supervision (EdD) with over 18 years of experience in counseling. You can read more about my background, education, experience, and counseling approach by clicking on my name on this page. I have worked with individuals seeking counseling both virtually and face to face. I generally check messages here a couple of times per day and I try to respond within hours. I do appreciate your patience when it takes a bit longer at times, as I do have a full-time position and may be unable to respond until later.

With adolescents and teens, I use interventions and strategies that address a variety of issues, including but not limited to: Depression, Self-Injury, Anxiety, Anger Management, Relationship Issues, Conflict Resolution, Substance Use and Coping with Separation and Divorce.

I often utilize Cognitive Behavior Therapy with teens. CBT is unique and individualized evidence-based treatment that is effective in treating each client's immediate and long-term goals. I am committed to providing high quality, excellent care, and a safe place for them to share.

Additionally, I may be available for phone and chat sessions on specific days. Please check my schedule and let me know if you do not see a time of day that works for you and I may be able to open a slot. Initial sessions are 30 minutes for information gathering. After which we can determine if the sessions will be 30 or 50 minutes. I will attach a therapy goals worksheet to get an idea of what you would like to work on during our time together.

Looking forward to working with you.

Bearlyn Ash, EdD, NCC, LPC, ACS

It has only been a few months, but I have noticed that the things that used to be insurmountable have started to become easier to deal with. Dr. Ash has helped me develop skills that have helped me to improve my life and I am very grateful for her patience and understanding.

She’s very encouraging and provides great insights. She makes the serious things lighthearted and funny when need be, which makes therapy more pleasant and not daunting. She understands and listens/doesn’t miss a beat. I really enjoy her worksheets and alternative ways of correcting behavior. I highly recommend Dr Ash!

Dr. Ash is wonderful! She is supportive, informative and friendly. I feel comfortable opening up to her (which I’m not like that with everyone) and I don’t feel judged. I feel like I have someone on my team! She’s helping me set healthy boundaries and address some childhood trauma and toxic relationships. I’d highly recommend her!

I have enjoyed my sessions with Dr. Ash and have found them to be helpful. Being able to share concerns and struggles and receive support and expert guidance is so important right now. I feel that I can't take care of those around me if I am not working to take care of myself. Dr. Ash is helping me to learn how to be more successful with self care!

I have really appreciate my subscription to teen counseling, and have recommended it to a couple friends. My therapist helped me get through a really difficult time. It was such a relief knowing she would respond immediately when I needed support. And even when our conversations were difficult, she always pulled me through. I have more confidence in my ability to refute anxiety and face it, rather than avoid and give power to old memories. Thanks, B

Bearlyn has been both a counselor & an educator. This gives her special insight into the many issues with which I am dealing. Sometimes it feels like I'm talking with a friend, and I leave our sessions with a plan to make improvements to my life.

Bearlyn Ash has been great so far. I like that she listened to what I needed and what my goals were in my first session and has geared my worksheets that she provides around that. I like how supportive she is in knowing she can help me reach my goals. I just had my third session last Sunday and I'm looking forward to more growth.
