Ashley Cook is an active listener who really seems to understand where someone is coming from and empathize with them, while still maintaining her professionalism. She makes you feel as though you're talking to a close friend, who just happens to be extremely helpful and knowledgeable. From my experience, she is able to find a way to get through to someone to make them look at things from a different angle and come to their own conclusions as to how they can make a situation better (i.e. better outcomes, handling situations differently, dealing with their emotions differently, etc.). Her methods involve a combination of active listening and solution-focused talk therapy with written and cognitive exercises. She has ways of getting through to people so that a session doesn't really feel like therapy, but the overall outcome is effective. - R.H.

Awesome Teen Coach! My mom saw me stressing out about college process 3 years ago and found Ashley to help me through the transition. Ashley knew how to help me then, and she still helps me today! I still call her from school every week for coaching. "Gotta stay in the game." She's the best. I'm really grateful. - S.K.

Professional, Dependable, Effective. Just show up and you will see results. Stick to it. Follow the plan. She knows what she's doing. Pricing is higher than community agencies, but she's better, life is short...and a better life is priceless. Thanks ABC! -I.P.
