My name is Ashley, I was born and raised in the northern suburbs of Chicago.
I am a licensed professional counselor with a Master's Degree in Clinical Psychology from Rosalind Franklin University, with a specialty in Psychedelic Therapy. I am currently the first individual at Rosalind Franklin University to both specialize and teach Psychedelic Therapy for therapists. I will be continuing to dedicate my work and career to help re-educate and de-stigmatize these therapies, so both patients and clinicians feel less shame and comfortability exploring these avenues of healing.
For the past seven years, psychedelic therapy has touched my life profoundly, in both professional and personal settings. I plan to help those who wish to undergo this path themselves feel safe and supported throughout their own personal journey.
My therapeutic style takes a humanistic and integrative approach. I focus on the holistic lens of the individual, meaning there are many different sides that we will work with and touch upon during our time together. My practice relies heavily on the use of CBT and ACT techniques, which we will use to build on other integrative styles of therapy. Learning to work with oneself during the highs and lows of life can be extremely difficult and you don’t need to do this alone. It is my hope that, together, we will be able to find ways that help you feel more balanced and connected with yourself emotionally, physically, mentally, and spiritually.
I look forward to meeting and helping you discover your own healing journey.
