My name is Ashley Rahr and I am a Mental Health Counselor Student Intern. I work with couples and individuals who are experiencing relationship struggles, life transitions, and attachment wounds. I also see clients experiencing anxiety, depression, shame, grief, and trauma.
I specialize in helping clients to identify the Somatic expression of past trauma and pain in their stories. As clients process their trauma through active engagement with their sensory experiences they come to better understand their current patterns of thinking and behaviors. My practice is informed by Attachment Theory, Somatic and Emotionally-Focused Therapies, and DBT.
After having spent years working in the wedding planning industry I am able to continue my passion for delighting in others and celebrating them in what seems like life’s biggest moments.
My four years as a middle school math teacher showed me the importance of connecting with
the younger versions of ourselves. As a counselor I am able to encourage my clients to find passions that bring joy to their lives. I am so grateful that I get to hold space for people as they seek healing, and change.
Spending time with my family is my greatest joy! When I am not counseling, I am doing something creative and crafty with my hands, playing with my volleyball team, or attending concerts.
