Hi everyone! My name is Ashley! Originally from Las Vegas, Nevada, and having lived in Texas for an extended time, I have recently relocated to Colorado Springs to follow my dream of living in the mountains and opening a private practice!
I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist Associate in the state of Texas and a Marriage and Family Therapist Candidate in the state of Colorado. I graduated from Texas Tech University in 2015 with a BA in Psychology and then in 2018 with a MS in Couple, Marriage and Family Therapy. I currently practice under the supervision of Kayli Cross, MS, LMFT-S, RYT.
I believe that therapy is a unique experience that provides a safe place to assist in acknowledging resiliency, providing hope and cultivating healing and growth within individuals and interpersonal relationships. I have experience in working with individuals, couples and families experiencing a wide range of issues such as depression, anxiety, addiction, trauma, suicidal ideation, crisis and various relational struggles.
Throughout my clinical experience, I have found that my passion lies within helping adolescents navigate the good, the bad and the ugly of being a teenager, as well as providing support in dealing with young adult issues and development.
As many clients come to therapy not of their own choosing or with skepticism, I place emphasis on building a therapeutic relationship with validation, trust, accountability, candid feedback and a little bit of humor as needed! That’s enough about me, I can’t wait to learn more about you!
