Hi, my name is Ashley and I am so proud of you for taking the first steps toward engaging in therapy! Even as the topic of mental health is becoming less taboo, we tend to maintain the "I'm fine" mentality and neglect ourselves.
I'm a Licensed Master of Social Work (LMSW) located in Athens, Georgia. I have been working in the behavioral health field since 2018 in long-term residential psychiatric units, crisis stabilization units, and ASAM levels 3.5 and 3.7 inpatient settings as both a mental health aide and Social Worker. I obtained my Bachelor of Social Work in 2020 from the University of South Dakota and my Master of Social Work in 2021 from the University of Georgia.
I have advanced training in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and foundational training in Motivational Interviewing (MI), and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT). I am not currently DBT Certified so all DBT techniques will be labeled as DBT-like in my treatment notes.
