Ashley Emmons, LPCA, CRC

Therapist

My Approach

I believe that therapy is a collaboration between the therapist and the client. You know your history and your experiences better than I ever could. You are the expert on you. My goal is to provide a safe and supportive environment that helps you process your thoughts, memories, and experiences so you can make choices that lead to a fulfilling life. I provide client-centered counseling; I believe that all people are innately good and have the internal capacity and desire to grow and shift their lives in meaningful ways. I believe you are resilient. In addition to supporting you in a safe space, I will challenge you to notice unhelpful patterns in your life and help provide tangible techniques for shifting those patterns.

I specialize in helping adults with eating disorders, body dysmorphia, body image distress, difficult life transitions, and disorders of over-control. I am heath-at-every-size (HAES) affirming; I celebrate diversity and I believe that all bodies are good bodies. I primarily use dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), Acceptance and Commitment therapy (ACT), values work, mindfulness, and solution-focused techniques with my clients. 

My passion for body neutrality and body acceptance guides my work.  I am passionate about helping people. This includes reducing body image distress, creating safer relationships with food, reducing depression and anxiety, and releasing the fear that you’re not good enough! When we work together, I’ll ask you to challenge yourself and I’ll help guide you every step of the way as you do. 

Today's the day to make a change.
