"Everything can always be different!"
Hi there! My name is Ashley Bublitz, a Licensed Mental Health Counselor Associate (LMHCA). I am a Midwestern transplant and moved to Washington state after obtaining my Master's degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling in 2019. After working in the mental health field for approximately nine years in a variety of settings, I have learned that the most important part of working with anybody is flexibility, compassion, and the ability to meet people where they are at. As such, my role as a clinician is to allow you to explore difficult areas of your life at your own pace. I believe that you are the expert in your own life and that the therapeutic process should be a collaborative one. It is important to me that you feel comfortable, connected, and engaged throughout our work together because therapy is often a difficult, yet rewarding, process.
Areas of Focus: depression, anxiety, psychosis, bipolar disorder, PTSD, trauma, grief, relationship issues (high conflict, codependency, etc.), family of origin issues, emotional abuse, boundary setting, low self-esteem, self-doubt, and emotional avoidance.
Treatments Used: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness, Adlerian, Solution Focused, Dialectal Behavior Therapy skills, Attachment theory, art, and with a trauma informed and person-centered approach
In person and telehealth appointments available
Initial sessions are used for us to get to know one another better, identify goals, and get a feel for what working together could be like.
Regular sessions provided on a weekly, bi-weekly, or "maintenance" basis.
My sessions are typically a mix of insight-driven and skills-based, meaning while we discuss the "core" conflict, I will give you skills to cope with the uncomfortable feelings so they feel more manageable to navigate.
Areas of focus:
Challenging/restructuring unhelpful thought patterns
Developing better coping skills
Overcoming effects of emotional abuse and manipulation
Increasing emotional awareness
