Erica Ashley

(MA, LPC)

About Me

Greetings! My name is Erica Ashley, and I love working with teenagers! I have had the opportunity to working with teenagers who are at risk of out of home placement, who are on probation who have a variety of issues such as ADHD, depression, bipolar, anxiety, cutting/self harm, substance abuse, and running away, and helping them prepare for the future. I do understand that teenagers are unique and valuable and treat each as a jewel. In my experience I have learned that it is very important to build and establish trust and rapport, also to create a "judgement free zone" that allows them to be free to share thoughts, and feelings. I use a variety of approaches in order to reach teenagers such as cognitive behavior therapy, client centered, etc. I hope that I am chosen to help assist your teenager ! I look forward to hearing from you!

Written by L.I. on Mar 19, 2021 after counseling with Erica for 2 weeks

Erica is extremely accommodating, easy to communicate with and has a very calming way about her. She cares and you can tell she is clearly listening to all of my concerns, thinking and responding. She is very comforting and checks in.

Erica has been more than supportive, understanding and just amazing. She sits and listens to what I have to say and encourages me to do and be better.
