Hi, I'm Ashley (she/they), a therapist and artist in Boston, Massachusetts. My therapeutic practice is informed by polyvagal theory, somatics, and affirmative care, which promote client-centered interventions and emphasize human connection.

 

I received my MSW degree from Simmons University in 2021, after training in the Dual-Diagnosis Partial Hospital Program at Brigham and Women's Faulkner Hospital and the Counseling and Wellness Center at the Massachusetts College of Art and Design. Prior to social work, I trained as a fine artist and worked as a professional photographer for 16 years.

 

Areas of focus in my therapy practice: identity development--with a focus on gender and sexual orientation; suicidality and suicide loss/grief; mindfulness; the autonomic nervous system; and the influence of our social locations on mental and physical well-being.
