Jen Ashley, LMSW, LCSW

To share a bit about myself, I started with alcohol and substance use studies and received an associate’s degree. My interest in helping others led me to pursue social work, and I obtained a Bachelor’s of Social Work degree and a Master’s Degree in Social Work from Nazareth College and Roberts Wesleyan College, respectively. I also received my LMSW and LCSW certifications.

My expertise lies in addiction, mental health, and criminal justice, particularly in my role as a Mobile Crisis Mental Health Social Worker. I am a Certified Grief Recovery Specialist and take a client-centered and holistic approach to help individuals overcome their struggles with a strengths-based perspective.

In my 15 years of practice, I have worked with a wide range of issues, including abandonment, addiction, anxiety, depression, trauma, and more. I employ different clinical approaches such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), and Trauma-Focused Therapy to provide personalized care to my clients.
