What does one put here?
My name is Ashley and I’m a psychologist?
That I completed my PhD in Clinical Psychology in 2012 from the University of Saskatchewan seems a little stuffy, but necessary.
My philosophy on life and change? I’m still working that out. I guess what I probably need to say is that I do this work because I love to celebrate the successes, absurdities, and challenges of my clients.
I recognize that seeking out therapy is a challenging decision for many and I have the opportunity to work with people through what are some of the most difficult times in their lives. I like to approach my clients with warmth, humor, and directness and I work hard to make my office a safe place for people to explore the darkness and the light that exists within them, and indeed all of us.
I am a trauma-informed, client centered therapist who recognizes the intersectionality of gender, race, sexual orientation, and socioeconomic status in the lives of my clients.
I look forward to meeting you!
