A major thread in Ashley’s work has been care for families. Having worked in volunteer and professional capacities with children and families for more than 17 years and as a mother of three young children, Ashley has found herself with a deep care for helping people find their own healing to stop cycles of toxic stress. When children or teens feel out of control or parents feel overwhelmed, working through issues that require learning how to emotionally regulate–such as trauma, stress, anxiety, depression, ADD, and OCD–can lead to healing that improves one’s ability to securely connect in relationships. Trauma, which might be described as any disruption in typical development, creates survival responses that can prevent us from finding safety in connections. Ashley’s personal model of counseling, an eclectic combination of attachment theory, CBT, brainspotting, play, artistic expression, and DART therapy, helps clients heal from issues that chronically disrupt relationships and wholehearted living. By developing a great foundation of healthy coping and regulation skills through this model of counseling, moving through trauma to healing becomes that much more possible.
