Licensed Clinical Social Worker

Ashlyn is a therapist intensively trained in dialectical behavior therapy (DBT). In her practice, she provides individual treatment, family therapy, skills training, and treatment consultations. Ashlyn received her bachelor’s degree in psychology from Furman University and her master’s degree in social work from the University of Georgia. Additionally, she completed the certificate in marriage and family therapy at University of Georgia.

Ashlyn works with child, adolescent, and adult clients on learning the skills necessary to manage anxiety, depression, substance use, ADD/ADHD, mood dysregulation, and personality disorders. She enjoys working with clients to find freedom from difficult emotions and the behaviors that accompany them. She believes there is more to life than merely surviving and wants to help her clients achieve this.
