Ashley Serpa, LMHC, LCMHC
Hello! It’s wonderful to meet you! My name is Ashley and I’m so glad you found yourself here.
A little about me: I began my journey into the mental health field in 2007 studying Psychology at Endicott College and went on to continue my education at William James College where I received my Masters in Counseling in 2013. Today I am a fully licensed clinician in the state of Massachusetts and New Hampshire, and I hold a National Counselor Certification from the NBCC. Over the course of my career I have worked in a variety of settings doing a broad range of work from in-home therapy with families to crisis work in the emergency department, as well as supervision and management of a local mental health clinic.
Mental health and wellbeing is my passion. I believe in the healing power of the therapeutic relationship and the innate ability of humans to heal their suffering. I work with both individual adults as well as couples and am currently in the process of earning a certification in the Gottman Method of couples therapy. I have ample experience treating trauma as I have worked extensively with PTSD and C-PTSD throughout my career. I also have experience working with individuals whose primary concerns are anxiety, depression, stress, and low self-esteem, among others.
I am a laid back, authentic, straightforward clinician who uses a blend of modalities in my approach. I believe that the therapeutic relationship is the foundation for meaningful and transformative work, so it is very important to me that we both feel we are a good fit working together. I value honesty and welcome feedback about my practice, as I can tailor my approach to your needs. My hope is to create a therapy space that feels safe and benefits you and your unique goals.
Since starting my career I’ve had the privilege of walking beside so many amazing individuals as they’ve cultivated their own resilience and strength. I truly look forward to walking with you on your journey!
