A Bit About Me

I am a Black, trans/queer therapist from Chicago, deeply committed to therapeutic practices that are both

grounded in lived experiences and adaptable in their application. Whether addressing common challenges

or fringe concerns, my approach consistently leans into inclusivity, collaboration, and ceaseless evolution.

In addition to therapy, my innate passions and inclinations align in various roles, be it in performance art,

caregiving, or others. My involvement in operating No Nation Unspace Art Lab in Wicker Park, in particular,

has been instrumental in fusing my love for the arts with therapeutic practices. My practice is consistently

fueled by a deep curiosity about the human condition—spanning the vastness of our collective

experiences to the nuanced intricacies that often go unnoticed.

Whether delving deep with precision or venturing into the realms of the uncharted, my method seamlessly

integrates analytical strengths with genuine empathy. I believe in recognizing and valuing the multifaceted

complexities that make up our individual experiences, even when they seem overwhelming or unknowable.

This judgment-free therapeutic space encompasses a range of modalities, from ACT and DBT to traumainformed

care and anti-colonial perspectives.

At the heart of what I do lies the art of narrative construction. I am dedicated to understanding and helping

shape the countless tales of resilience, discovery, and change that each client brings. With unwavering

commitment to each journey, my goal is to assist clients in crafting a personal narrative enriched with

insight, understanding, and growth.

Why did you decide to become a social worker?

My journey into therapy was sparked by an enduring fascination with diverse human experiences and

cultures. Through years immersed in experimental performance arts, I grasped the transformative power

of authentic relationships. Engaging with artists from all corners of the globe, I saw firsthand the bravery

in presenting work, irrespective of its perceived appropriateness or accessibility. These experiences deeply

inform my therapeutic approach, emphasizing the value of genuine connections.

What type of clients are you most excited to work with?

I'm drawn to individuals eager to explore the depth and breadth of their lives, whether they are facing a

crisis or seeking growth. I believe that every person has a unique way of experiencing the world, and aiding

them in leading fulfilling lives enriches my own sense of humanity.

What's one thing you wish all clients knew?

It's essential to recognize that our doubts, uncertainties, and questions hold as much value as our

moments of clarity. True well-being, much like art, isn't solely defined by labels of "good" or "bad"; it's about

resonance and alignment with the individual experiencing it.

Why did you choose to practice at Ashe Counseling & Coaching LLC

genuine commitment to ensuring quality experiences for both practitioners and clients stands out. At
