Ashley Townsend, MS, LPC
I graduated from North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University with a Masters in Science in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. I have 10 years of experience working in various mental health settings.
I believe there are many reasons people seek counseling services. An enhanced sense of self understanding and acceptance is essential in shaping the way we view ourselves. Each individual presents unique counseling needs which guides the therapeutic process. Therefore, I believe there is no approach that may work best for everyone. I utilize integrative and evidence-based models that are based from cognitive-behavioral, solution-focused, developmental, and trauma-informed care approaches. I believe the counseling experience should allow individuals to explore new ideas and improve their self identity. I strive to help individuals with a unique and customized healing journey in a safe, non-judgmental and comforting space.
In my personal time, I am committed to spending time with my family and friends. I enjoy attending church events and exploring different areas of self-care practices.
