Therapy Philosophy

My approach first and foremost is person-centered.  Every person/couple is unique and my goal is to get to know you and learn what is important to you in order to help you to work to lead a more fulfilled life.   I am a nonjudgmental, body-positive, sex-positive, LGBTQIA-affirming therapist who believes that every person deserves to be treated with dignity and respect.  My desire is that my office is a safe space for you to be yourself where we can explore issues, past and present, and work toward personal growth.  Secondly, my approach is strengths-based, focusing on what is working in your life and building upon those strengths.  Goals and treatment may look different for every individual/couple, meaning I may incorporate different therapeutic modalities and the length of treatment will vary based on client needs.  I value the therapeutic relationship, which is proven to be one of key pieces to effective therapy.  I acknowledge that I won’t be the best fit for every person, but I have an excellent referral list that I utilize to make sure you are getting the care that fits your needs.  Contact me for your free 15 minute consultation today to see how we can work together toward a more fulfilling life.

Accessibility Statement

Asch Counseling and Development is committed to being an accessible and inclusive space. I want to acknowledge the accessibility that my practice currently supports and some limitations. I am continuing to learn and am always open to feedback around accessibility considerations.
– I offer telehealth as an alternative to in-person therapy
– I practice on a first floor location. The front door has a ramp and automatic doors.
– I have multiple options for seating in my office. I am committed to fat liberation and have taken that into consideration in choosing my office furniture.

– I did not purchase the seating in my waiting room which is low to the ground and has arms on the chairs. This may not be inclusive for all. One option I have is to text me when you arrive and I can come let you into the building when I am ready, so you can wait in your car if that is more comfortable. I am open to more suggestions.
– While I do not own my current office building, the signage on the bathroom is binary and non-inclusive. I continue to work to change this. Please use any bathroom you feel comfortable using.
