She is a member of the American Counseling Association and the counseling honor society, Chi Sigma Iota, where she serves as the treasurer of the Oakland University Theta Chapter.
Ashley views the counseling relationship as collaborative with her being in the role of serving the client. She believes that clients know themselves best and they have the ability inside themselves to create desired change. Ashley believes the therapeutic relationship alone is sufficient for clients to reach goals. She aims to create a non judgemental, warm, and safe space for her clients to explore any topic, including those that may carry taboo or shame.
Ashley’s theoretical approach is rooted in a person-centered viewpoint. Other theories utilized for conceptualization include existentialism, social justice, and various systems approaches. Creating meaning in the present and fostering hope are of utmost importance to her interventions with clients. Processing past trauma wounds and coming to terms with losses are also foundational.

Strategies implemented outside of the relationship alone depend on client need and usually remain limited to focus on the dyad of exploring and processing.

She considers herself a lifelong learner to understand each client empathetically and understand their experience of the human condition. Right now Ashley enjoys the opportunity to work with clients from nearly every walk of life.
