Ashley Laird

As a counselor I aim to provide a safe and non-judgmental environment where clients feel seen, heard and accepted. I want to help individuals in their journey through healing, and I believe that process begins with trust and genuineness from one’s therapist. I have experience working with children, adolescents and parents in a variety of settings, including elementary schools, inpatient and outpatient programs. I understand the importance of working collaboratively with parents, guardians and key support figures in a child’s life and incorporate this into my practice. I like to use expressive modalities, such as art and play therapy so children can communicate wants and needs in a developmentally appropriate manner. My areas of expertise include anxiety and depression, issues related to school, mindfulness practices and suicidal ideation.
