“When Ashley started working with my son he was reluctant to complete homework and it was a nightly battle. Not fun for anybody in the house. She listened to him and earned his trust. This opened the door for her to help him understand the connection between his thoughts and his actions. He has been able to build on the concepts he learned with Ashley."

“In an effort to decluttering my 11-year-old daughter’s heart and headspace, I ended up decluttering mine. The first session changed our lives because while she was telling me how much she enjoyed her time with Coach Ashley because she was given the time and space to draw or write whatever she wanted and that made her feel like she had power over herself."
