"Ashley is a therapist that I would, and have recommended, to anyone I know.  She helped me get through an extremely difficult time in not only my personal life, but professionally as well.  As a medical provider myself, I appreciate her ability to understand and uncover the underlying issues and develop a course of action for the issues I had in my life.  Specifically, how I could rise above the circumstances and come out a better individual, personally and professionally. Providing me with ways to cope and not having it spill in to the other parts of my life.  She sees the big picture, not just the problem at hand, and has given me tools that I can use forever."

“I have surprised myself in every way in the last few months. At the beginning of last summer, I never would have guessed that I could be this person; this happy, healthy version of myself. I owe it all to the work that we did together. I am grateful every day that I met you. You really are an awesome counselor. Learning to love myself changed my whole perspective on life. I’m having so much more fun because I don’t put so much pressure on myself to be perfect. My anxiety came back for one day, but I used the tools you gave me and it didn’t last long. I feel like an independent, functioning ‘adult.’ Thank you for helping me get to where I am today.”

“I highly recommend Ashley Crooks to anyone seeking counseling services. My daughter has been attending counseling sessions with Ashley for a year. She has greatly helped our family get through and bring positive change to a very difficult situation. Ashley has been extremely caring, consistently went above and beyond, and truly did whatever she could to help. I have seen such a positive change in my child’s life. It feels amazing to see true happiness and smiles every day! Thank you, Ashley. We are so happy and grateful for your help!”

“I contacted Ashley because I was really in need of a good counselor/ therapist who I could relate to and who could relate to me. I was struggling with depression, anxiety and low self-esteem. Ashley helped me move from my darkest of days to being able to see the light and become a better person as a whole. I have been seeing Ashley now for over a year and the progress I have made is incredible. Ashley is very smart and caring. With each session, I gain new tools and insight to help me become the person I want to be. Ashley really motivated me and gave me the confidence I needed. In my experience, she is the best therapist I have seen. I really do look up to Ashley. Ashley took the time to get to know me and really understand what I needed. She made me feel comfortable enough to share anything with her. My experience with Ashley has been nothing but great and I would recommend her to anyone looking for help in any areas of life. Ashley is a great supporter, counselor, and mentor for me. I continue to learn from Ashley each session about myself and the world around me. I am no longer depressed; my self-esteem is back and my anxiety has lessened. Ashley has helped me experience growth that for me was unimaginable and I am very grateful for that.”

“I’ve been in and out of therapy since I was fourteen years old, but never gave it a chance since I didn’t like any of my therapists. Finally, at the age of thirty, I’ve found a professional who makes me feel comfortable enough to open up to and work through my issues. Ashley has been helping me with past traumas, addiction, family issues, financial budgeting, better communication skills, etc. This is honestly the first time in my life that I look forward to therapy! She is kind, but firm, and isn’t afraid to challenge me when I try to rationalize things that I know are wrong. I highly recommend seeing her if you need help or want to work through your problems and feel better.”

“Ashley has been the best therapist for me. After I got out of the hospital she made me realize that there was hope and that I could grow from what I experienced. Since last year, I have grown so much and I am so glad that she could help me this much. She can make my tears turn to laughter, and I love her so much. Thank you for everything you have done for me.”
