Get to Know Ashlea

Therapist | LPC

I use a person-centered, strength-based approach when working with clients. I work within a compassionate, open, accepting, and loving environment where I guide and plant seeds for clients to connect to their grace, power, and inner light. Through self-renewing rituals, I teach a client how to explore grounding, stillness, and presence. I utilize the body and movement as a resource to tap into wisdom, hidden processes, and realizations within the “Self” – mind/body/spirit/soul. I help guide a client to become more deeply connected to support fuller expression, health, and vitality.

My Professional Background

I am a licensed professional counselor (LPC) and a Board-Certified Dance/Movement Therapist (BC-DMT). I have worked with children, adolescents, adults, and older adults in the inpatient medical setting, inpatient psychiatric setting, outpatient setting, and private practice. I have worked with clients on issues related to quality of life, mood and emotional regulation, trauma, body image, life transitions and relationship challenges.

Education, Training, and Certifications

  • Bachelor of science (BS) degree in dance from Texas State University-San Marcos
  • Master of Arts in dance/movement therapy and counseling from Columbia College Chicago
  • GL-CMA (graduate laban certification in movement analysis)
  • Currently training to become certified in RTT (rapid transformational therapy) and hypnotherapy

Fun Facts

In my spare time I love to hang out in my hammock outside, go salsa dancing, take my dog on walks, paint rocks, travel the world, cook, and try new vegan/vegetarian foods. I also love to volunteer for local organizations and save sea life one straw or plastic bag at a time!
