Greetings! My name is Ashley Starwood, LSW and I am a Licensed Social Worker in Illinois. I have been in the field of social work for over 10 years and I specialize in helping people become the best version of themselves. I use a combination of CBT, TFCBT, DBT, Narrative- Based therapy, and Solution-Focused therapy in order to help you reach your potential. I am well-versed in trauma therapy and am my clients' go-to when they are in crisis. I am a practicing Yogini and utilize yogic practices to help my clients refocus on themselves, their goals, and their mind-body connections. I primarily work with couples, individuals, and families who are new to therapy due to the stigma that surrounds seeking therapeutic services. My work with clients also includes those who are struggling with the current political climate and dis-ease throughout society.
I graduated with my Masters in Social Work with an Advanced Clinical Specialization from Aurora University, and completed my undergraduate degree from Northern Illinois University.
