About Me

Ashley strongly believes that knowledge is power and actively seeks to empower families and neurodivergent individuals. She is on a mission to support families falling through the cracks by offering assent-based, child-centered, neurodivergent-affirming and compassionate care to families of children who may be struggling with emerging "problem behaviors" due to experiencing the world in a different way. Within the medical model, this is often called developmental delays, Autism, ADHD, etc. Although our current system pathologizes these differences, with appropriate supports and accommodations, the world would be a lot safer and accessible for neurodivergent individuals.

One mama said,  "Our experience with Ashley has been great! She is kind and compassionate yet professional and extremely skilled.  She's amazing at what she does and her passion shows in her work.  She truly cares." Another dad shared, "Ashley is amazing. She is knowledgeable, accessible, easy to work with and supportive".
