Life 101:  21 Practical Personal Growth Principles for the 21st Century

I work collaboratively to help you become aware of your strengths and start finding solutions that will enhance your life and relationships. I believe within each of us lies the solution to any life challenge, and it is my role to help you uncover your innate wisdom and inner strength to heal. My style of therapy can be described as compassionate, collaborative, holistic, and interactive. We will work together to develop your goals for therapy, and my approach will be tailored to your specific situation and your personality. Perhaps most importantly, I provide a safe and empathic environment to explore your thoughts and feelings.

Like most things in life, therapy only works to the extent that you are willing to put time, energy and focus into the process.  The first session is primarily an information gathering session, and while some clients report immediate relief after the first session, many find it takes some time for the positive impact of therapy to manifest in their lives.  I ask clients to consider trying at least three sessions before making a judgment about the therapy. I often give homework assignments and find that clients that make the effort to complete the homework improve at a significantly higher rate.

I am open and receptive to your feedback, comments, ideas, questions and thoughts about how the therapy is working for you. Please don’t hesitate to share your ideas, as this is a co-creative process.  I look forward to working with you.

In Love and Light,  Ashley
