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.

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 very easy to talk to. She is very sweet and knowledgeable.
My therapist is awesome!
Dr. Ash is a light hearted soul. I can see improvements in myself after every session.
She is a great listener and Understands my concerns. I feel like I’m talking to a friend and it helps me open up.
She’s amazing! She helps you to figure things out and leaves it up to you to work hard towards those goals!
Dr. Ash is a genuine and uplifting therapist! I look forward to our sessions!
Dr. Ash is fantastic! Personable, compassionate, intelligent, and easy to talk to, my husband and I are enjoying her calming input.
Dr. Ash was very easy to talk to and I enjoyed my time working with her.
She's great. She listens to everyone and helps everyone come to an understanding. Our marriage is growing and if it wasn't for Dr. Ash, I don't think we would've headed down the right path.
Dr. Ash is an amazing therapist. She’s been a blessing these past few months when I was going through some things. I have no doubt she will be a blessing to many more. Thank you Dr. Ash for your time and sincere words !
So thankful for Dr. Ash's patience and positivity. She creates a safe space to discuss hard things and provides resources to learn how to grow.
She’s been a huge help to me! I’m so grateful for her support!
Great counselor!! provides great insights and listens even when you are not talking
Dr. Ash is exceptional at what she does! I am thankful for teen counseling and their intake process which helps connect you with your ideal counselor. Ash is extremely knowledgeable and we connect in great ways to support my mental health in my life! I love her and the things we have accomplished so far, I have comfort in knowing she’s there for me anytime!
Dr. Ash is incredible and I wouldn't have survived quarantine without her. Period.
Therapy isn't something smiled upon coming from the community I'm apart of. Dr. Ash has made the process easier and more approachable. It's greatly appreciated
Dr. Ash is attentive and fair. I highly recommend her for couples counseling. My husband agrees although he was reluctant to go to counseling. She made us both feel comfortable.
The best therapist I’ve ever had. So kind, understanding, and always knows just what to say. Such an amazing support system
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!
Dr.Ash is wise, compassionate, and helpful. You feel supported and safe when you open up to her. Highly recommend!
I feel she has been a huge help and eye opener in helping us repair our amazing relationship
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.
She is professional and kind. I feel she understands where I am and meets me there.
After 4 sessions feel so much better and she has provided resources and concrete tools that help me. She does a great job and getting to the root of my challenges and providing support to work through them. Bearyln has a real, down-to-earth approach that I find calming, light and a good fit for me.
I recently switched counselors to Bearlyn, we haven’t had a lot of conversation yet because I just switched, but she seems great and has sent me thought provoking worksheets and ways of dealing with anxiety. I am excited to work with her more because she seems to get it
Nearly is amazing. She understands and listens to your concerns and what you're going through. I have appreciated her input and her resources suggested. She is great, simply put!
She is great! From the very first session she was very attentive and understanding. She gives great advice and resources all the time. I am constantly telling my friends about teen counseling and her as counselor.
An awesome therapist:)
We have only had one meeting so far but I really enjoyed her. Our session was so short so that was disappointing but only I’m excited to continue working with her
10’s across the board!
