My name is Ashley Lovell, and I am an Associate Marriage and Family Therapist. I obtained my degree from Brigham Young University and have received training in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). My experience encompasses working with individuals facing various challenges, including sexual pain, differences in desire, premature ejaculation, "good girl syndrome," sexual abuse, dysfunctional families of origin, depression, perfectionism, and anxiety.
I strongly believe in the healing power of healthy relationships. Above all, I strive to create a safe space where clients feel comfortable taking courageous steps. I want to emphasize that I am not a perfect human being, and if you are also on a journey of self-improvement, we may be a good fit! Bringing my humanity into the therapy room is crucial to building a trusting relationship.
I view intimacy, emotionality, vulnerability, and healthy communication as learned skills that many of us were not fully educated on. Consequently, my role in therapy is not to "fix" anyone but to provide education and support as clients navigate their current challenges and find ways to become "unstuck." In therapy, I take a client-led approach, recognizing that all individuals are capable of growth and possess the inherent ability to heal from their past.
Understanding the complexity of human experiences, I take a holistic approach to healing. I explore various systems that may contribute to therapeutic issues, such as family background, religious contexts, media influences, and cultural/ethnic factors. It is an honor for me to accompany individuals on their journey, even during their most challenging moments. Witnessing their strength and resilience as they find healing within themselves brings me great fulfillment.
