Ashley Schultz – Henricksen, MSW, LICSW
“No teacher, preacher, parent, friend
Or wise man can decide
what’s right for you- just listen to
The voice that speaks inside.” – Shel Silverstein
Being human can be incredibly difficult. It can also be incredibly beautiful. When we’re overwhelmed, whether that’s due to mental health symptoms, current or past life circumstances, or trouble in our relationships, it can be difficult to engage fully in life. When the way we’re showing up doesn’t fit how we’d like to, therapy can be a place to explore why and what could be different.
As a therapist, Ashley aims to provide a nonjudgmental and supportive space for her clients to learn about what they’d like to get most out of life and how to achieve it. Her practice is grounded in humanistic and systems theories, meaning that she often works with clients to increase their self-compassion, identify their personal strengths and resources, and consider how different parts of their environment may either limit or support them.
Ashley has extensive experience providing DBT and CBT services, so she can help you learn new skills when you feel you need to try something different. These approaches can help guide our work, and work best when we work together to apply them to your individual needs.
Ashley has experience working with adolescents, transitional aged individuals, and adults of diverse genders, sexual orientations, racial backgrounds, and religions. She works primarily with people experiencing symptoms of depression, various types of anxiety, rumination, negative thinking patterns, and difficulty with self-esteem.
