    About Ashley: Ashley is a dedicated psychotherapist with a clinical treatment focus on trauma recovery, military life culture, and supporting individuals impacted by adversity. As the Director of Development, Ashley leverages her experience to spearhead innovative leadership techniques within our practice and in the community. Ashley has been a part of multiple initiatives in the region aimed at enhancing mental health services for communities who lack resources and access to quality mental healthcare. 

    Trained in trauma-informed treatment modalities such as EMDR, Internal Family Systems, Psychoanalysis, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, and Trauma Informed Clinical Hypnosis, Ashley has a deep understanding of the complexities of PTSD, adverse childhood experiences, addiction, suicidality, and personality disorders. Her treatment background includes providing clinical interventions tailored to the unique needs of active-duty service members, combat veterans, special operators, first responders, those who have left cults and have experienced religious abuse, people struggling with process addictions, providing Catholic faith based counseling to those who seek it, and treating people who have learned that they were conceived through non-paternal events which lead to uncovering family secrets via at home DNA tests.

    Ashley is not only a seasoned clinician, but also, a passionate psychoeducator and lecturer, frequently presenting to esteemed organizations such as Give An Hour, CASA, NAMI, leading universities, school districts, the California Teachers Association, and various government agencies. Her engaging presentations empower audiences to cultivate a deeper understanding of mental health issues and implement evidence-based strategies for effective intervention and support within their organizations. Driven by a commitment to advocacy and education, Ashley continues to be a respected voice in the mental healthcare field across Southern California, advocating for comprehensive care and resilience-building strategies that foster healing and growth in those who need it most. 

    Ashley is a graduate of the Loma Linda University School of Behavioral Health, a recipient of the National Infantry Association’s Shield of Sparta award, and the Yellow Rose of the State of Texas Award for Women. These accolades were bestowed upon Ashley for her work as a Family Readiness Leader for the US Army and caring for military dependents during wartime. In her personal life, Ashley is a Girl Scout troop leader, Mom to her beautiful daughter and silly French Bulldog, proud wife of a combat veteran, a lifelong Dodgers fan, and a shameless Disneyland Adult.
