Reproductive Counseling & Perinatal Mental Health
AW Wellness is completely dedicated to working with women, and parents throughout the perinatal period from preconception through the first year post delivery and on through the first years of parenthood.
No two journeys to or through parenthood are the same and no one should ever feel that they have to navigate it on their own.
As a Registered Play Therapist, Ashley utilizes play therapy (a form of child therapy) to help children prevent or resolve a variety of psychosocial difficulties using a child's natural form of expression - play!
Play therapy is an evidenced based, theoretical modality that helps children process experiences and learn healthy ways to manage a variety of life stressors.
Ashley uses play therapeutically to work with children and adolescents up to age 12 to address a variety of emotional and behavioral concerns.
The nature of working with children strongly involves partnering with parents and also places focus on improving the dyadic relationship between parent and child. Ashley helps parents feel more confident and competent in their parenting abilities so families can get back to enjoying life again.
