Ashleigh has eight years of professional experience working with adults with serious and persistent mental illnesses (SPMIs), substance abuse issues, and legal issues. While completing her Masters, Ashleigh interned at a private practice, where she provided individual and group counseling sessions to child and adult clients, along with couples counseling. During this internship, she worked with a variety of presenting problems, including depression, anxiety, LGBTQ+ related issues, body image issues, disordered eating, self-harming behaviors, and relationship problems. In this time, Ashleigh’s interest in working with eating disorders grew, so she unhesitatingly took the opportunity to join Eating Disorder Solutions.
