"And you? When will you begin that long journey into yourself?" - Rumi
Therapy is a journey marked by change and growth. If you are struggling in your life, I welcome you to consider therapy as an option for healing.
My name is Dr. Ashley Mercer and I am a licensed psychologist with 20 years of experience providing counseling and psychotherapy. I work with clients on a range of issues including depression, anxiety, and navigation of life changes. I specialize in the areas of sexual health, gender identity, perinatal mental health concerns, and relationship difficulties.
My approach to therapy is centered in a strong belief in the science of psychology and counseling, blended with the arts of empathy and compassion (and a good sense of humor).
In my work as a psychologist, I strive to honor who you are and the path you have traveled. Primary in this process is a focus on your values and worldview.
My theoretical orientation to therapy is rooted in the principles of insight-oriented therapy, relational theory, mindfulness principles, feminist and multicultural orientations, and cognitive behavioral (CBT) approaches to change.
