Approach to Clinical Psychotherapy

Ash specializes in therapeutic work focused on eating disorder recovery, complex trauma, dialectics and duality, and macro-level and systemic oppression. They find deep fulfillment in therapeutic work that brings your past into the room as a way to explore current behaviors, and also provides concrete coping skills to help manage day-to-day life. They offer deep, unending compassion to all of her clients and believes that all people are valuable simply because they exist.

She has extensive experience working with individuals in larger bodies—often referred to as “fat” in a reclamatory and neutral way—recovering from trauma (including chaotic childhood environments, abuse of varying kinds, medical fatphobia and other traumatic experiences of oppression) and eating disruptions of all kinds. They have supported individuals coming to terms with and exploring their gender identity, sexuality, and racial identity.

She is also kink friendly, polyam-affirming, and supportive of harm reduction models.

Ash is licensed for psychotherapy in New York State.

Licence is held under their legal name.

Ash holds all sessions virtually at this time.
