Hi! I’m Ashley. Licensed therapist and founder of Connected Counseling. I completed my Master’s in 2009 and became fully licensed in 2012. Over the years, I’ve worked in disaster relief, residential treatment, managed care, Emergency Departments, and psychiatric admissions/inpatient/case management. In 2022, I left my career at Vanderbilt Behavioral Health (VBH) as the Social Work Team Lead in the Psychiatric Assessment Service (PAS) for private practice. Then, I immersed myself in the training of Emotionally Focused Therapy, Imago Relationship Therapy, and The Gottman Method. Now, I specialize in couples counseling and individual therapy for dating and relationship issues. My approach is humanistic, person centered, and solution focused, and humor is my favorite coping skill. I would be honored to work with you and hope to help you as my therapists have helped me.
