Ashley Blake, LCSW
St Louis- Clayton
Ashley Blake is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with nine years experience helping adults and children improve their relationships, heal from trauma and loss, and cultivate more fulfilling lives. Ashley uses an integrated approach to meet the needs of each unique client. With training in both psychodynamic and cognitive approaches, she helps clients struggling with depression, anxiety, PTSD, and the painful effects of interpersonal conflict, past or present. For some clients, it is quite useful to reflect upon relationship patterns that emerged from childhood because with greater insight, there is greater choice. Other clients need tools they can immediately use to gently approach difficult feelings such as fear, sadness, and anger so that they can move toward a life of value and purpose. Ashley also offers mindfulness practices for those interested. Most importantly, Ashley works to offer a space in which you can feel seen, heard, and understood. Everyone has a desire to feel truly known by another, and she sees it as the highest privilege when a client shares their complex story, heartfelt needs, and deepest wishes.
