Amy Ashland, LPC
My first mentor in the field of counseling told me, “You can't take anyone to where you've never been.” This sage advice has stayed with me for the 30-plus years that I have had the privilege of operating in this profession. These words have encouraged me to continue my own journey of self-exploration and healing and then, in turn, helped me to be more equipped to offer and support in the healing relationships that I have been privileged to play a role in over the years.
Children, adolescents, and families have been a particular area of focus and expertise for me. From working in traditional outpatient settings and a therapeutic day school across the spectrum to inpatient settings, my experiences have been varied and have enriched my knowledge base.
Healthy, working, therapeutic relationships start with the building blocks of a healthy relationship. For my clients, this includes providing a safe place to share information, thoughts, and feelings and setting mutually agreed upon goals for the progression of therapy. Sessions then become the process of working towards achieving these goals that are reviewed and adjusted as needed.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, psychodynamic work, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and play therapy are my most used methodologies. In addition to these, I often engage the families and individuals I work with in the practice of mindfulness, simple yoga practices, and elements of art and music.
I look forward to the honor of meeting new clients/families and offering my education and experiences to help achieve greater functioning and a new discovery of self.
