Ashley was born and raised in a small town in southern New Jersey. Addiction runs in her family and she is happy and grateful to be sober one day at a time for 11 years.
At a young age, Ashley realized that she always wanted to help people and empower people to be the best they can be. She found herself being interested in how people think, feel and interact with one another so she pursued the field of Psychology and graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree from Fairleigh Dickinson University and then achieved her Master’s Degree in Psychology from the University of Phoenix. She is currently working on achieving her LPC and LCADC to better enable her to help people who suffer from the disease of addiction.
Ashley started her career by working as a Cognitive Therapist and Case Manager for patients who suffer from Traumatic Brain Injuries. Once Ashley achieved her MS she was able to take her career to higher levels and found herself working as a Supervisor for group homes and has eventually worked in both the mental health and addiction fields including inpatient, outpatient, with children, adolescents, and adults.
Ashley is the proud mother of her 7-year-old son. She finds peace while sitting on the beach listening to the ocean and finds purpose in empowering people who struggle by finding stability and peace in their life.
“Be content with what you have, rejoice in the way things are. When you realize there is nothing lacking, the whole world belongs to you.” – Lao-Tzu (601-531BC)
