There are many reasons one might seek out help, and every individual deserves a counselor who will do their best for them.
Ashlee is a Licensed Professional Counselor who strongly believes in the importance of a good client-counselor relationship.
For the past five years, Ashlee has worked with adolescents, adults, and seniors from diverse populations. Her clinical interests include substance abuse, behavioral addictions, trauma, domestic violence, depression, anxiety, anger management, and relationship issues.

She has worked in various settings including private practice, non-profit, and court-mandated settings providing both individual, family, and group therapy.
Ashlee employs a holistic, client-centered approach to help one navigate through the therapeutic process, always remembering that one’s problems are only a fraction of who they are.
Each treatment plan is a tailor-made, collaborative effort between the client and Ashlee. Clients need to be a driving-force in their therapy for it to be effective, while the counselor works as a catalyst for change. She helps clients understand how their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors may be contributing to their situation, and she can assist in developing coping strategies, recognizing personal strengths & resources, and learning to effectively communicate with themselves and others.
