About Ashley


I have worked in schools, community clinics, and non-profit agencies serving people ages 6-85 from a variety of backgrounds.  I value social justice and actively explore the ways power and difference impact relationships and experiences in mental health settings, learning environments, and everyday life.  I am committed to developing inclusive spaces.

One focus of my work has been sex & sexuality, supported by my experience as a trainer with San Francisco Sex Information (SFSI).  I work with a wide variety of topics related to sex, sexual health, sexual identity, and sexual trauma.  I am certified as a sex educator through SFSI and as a rape crisis counselor through Bay Area Women Against Rape.

I currently support a behavioral health program as a quality assurance specialist where I provide training and technical assistance to staff and intern therapists with emphasis on documentation and adherence to clinical and quality standards.  I am additionally a clinical supervisor for Crisis Support Services of Alameda County and the Pacific Center for Human Growth.

I hold a master's degree in counseling psychology from the California Institute of Integral Studies and a master's degree in women's studies from the University of Oxford.  My undergraduate education was at the College of William & Mary. 

I invite you to explore more about my psychotherapy practice, my work as a sex educator, and my work as a trainer.  Please get in touch if you think I might be able to support you in your work.


Therapy can be a powerful resource for working on personal goals, improving relationships, and getting through life's ebb and flow.
