ASHLEY BLACKETT, MA, LMFT
A LITTLE BIT ABOUT ME:
Change is hard! Isn't the alternative worse? Life can be very challenging and demanding. It can even seem extremely overwhelming. The good news is you don't have to feel alone. Having worked in a variety of settings with many ages and ranges of coping, I have gained years of experience to help those in need. Seeking help is a sign of courage and strength, which I foster in practice. I offer assistance in finding ways to manage your stressors in ways that work for you. Improving self-esteem, learning to cope, and managing emotions is all possible.
Therapy should be a place where people can feel heard, supported and encouraged but also challenged. I strive to create a welcoming, non-judgmental environment where you and your children can feel validated and accepted – where they are ready to tackle and face the issues that are holding them back.
YOUR CHILDREN WILL LOVE COMING TO ME:
I love that there are so many different ways to work with children in session – we talk, we play, we draw, we cry, we laugh, sometimes all in one session! Although I’ve worked with children and adolescents for years, it still amazes me how adaptable and resilient they can be. It's such a rewarding experience to witness their growth and change!
With empathy and understanding, I offer a sense of safety and unconditional positive regard creating a lasting connection. Let me help you find the answers.
