Ashley Whelan

ASSOCIATE Professional Clinical Counselor

Are you currently embarking on a journey of healing and not sure where to start? Sometimes we can identify a need for resolution and not feel fully sure what it is we are trying to resolve. It is understandable to become overwhelmed trying to figure out what to work through, in what order, and how to do so in a way that realistically works for us. I recognize how overwhelming and confusing this part of the journey can be, which motivates me to take a supportive and direct approach as a therapist in order to help you understand yourself and be able to move forward with confidence.
