Meet Ashley

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and have spent my career helping people develop coping skills to think, feel, and behave in healthier manners.  I have spent 10 years working with incarcerated individuals and those who are transitioning back into our community from prison. This has given me the opportunity to work with an array of concerns, such as: substance use, mood disorders, trauma, interpersonal difficulties, and sexually maladaptive behaviors.

Ashley Sheriff,
MA, LPC
Primary Therapist

I realized early on in my career that we can engage in behaviors that are not helpful for ourselves in an effort to try to feel better. Therefore, I practice from a trauma informed perspective to develop an understanding with my clients as to why a behavior is occurring, what relief they hope to obtain from that unwanted behavior, and then finally to develop coping skills that provide the relief being sought after. I like to give focus to the strengths that a person possesses and utilize those skills to create healthier coping options. Making the commitment to therapy takes vulnerability and I appreciate your willingness to share your authentic self with me.
