Ashleigh Ross-Lind Therapy Experience

My clients and interns find that I am an empathetic listener, a keen observer and a calming presence. Because of this, my therapy is very effective when combined with research based techniques and practical counseling experience.

It is vital to find a counselor that you feel comfortable with, that understands you and that you feel connected to from the initial visit. Trust is one of the most important qualities that clients need to help them grow and change, no matter why they are seeking therapy. My office is a place where there is no judgment, so that you can feel free to explore your thoughts and express your feelings. I believe therapy works when you take insights you have gleamed from the therapeutic relationship and apply what you learn from your fresh, new perspective.

You will find that I am very approachable, easy to understand, provide evidence-based therapy, care deeply about helping you work through your struggles and have years and years of experience with working with individuals with anxiety.

Counseling is a unique opportunity for the therapist and the person seeking help to work toward resolution in a genuine, compassionate and understanding environment. Research tells us that problem resolution is best approached from the use of specific techniques found in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy—Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). Results matter, so if you are going to spend your time and money, you should see a difference in your thought process, perspective and demeanor within just a few sessions. CBT combined with mindfulness techniques and unconditional positive regard help clients feel all problems can become life lessons in which we grow; they are not who you are.

I have been a licensed psychotherapist since 1998. In 2001 I received my license to supervise counselors in training. I have worked for years with adults and adolescents helping them overcome substance abuse, understand grief and manage anxiety. Each day that a person trusts me with their inner pain, I grow as a therapist and learn more ways to help.

You can find relief from substance abuse, anxious thinking and grief related to—divorce, death, moves—and begin to find a NEW you. The NEW you will encompass your history along with a renewed spirit. You can find acceptance of the past and new hope for the future through therapy.
