Wilson Counseling would like to welcome our new associate Ashley Giles!
Ashley is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and specializes in helping her clients resolve problems in their relationships, low self-esteem, sexual issues, depression, stress, and anxiety. She enjoys working collaboratively with couples and individuals to address the sources of distress in their lives. Ashley received her Masters in Social Work at New York University and a Bachelor’s Degree in Accounting with a minor in Gender and Women’s Studies at Southern Methodist University.
Ashley’s goal is to assist her clients in finding healing, happiness, and empowerment in their lives and relationships because no one is given a guidebook on how to master relationships with others or with themselves. Her experience treating individuals and couples in New York City and her trainings in couples, sex, and cognitive therapies have prepared her to successfully guide her clients to fill-in-the-blanks that leave them feeling unfulfilled and over-stressed.
Ashley provides an environment where clients can feel comfortable to discuss and address personal and relationship issues, including sexual concerns. She relies on a combination of evidence-based techniques to help individuals and couples experiencing a range of relationship and sexual difficulties. Some of the issues that can be addressed in sex therapy include erectile or ejaculatory dysfunction, low sexual desire, lack of intimacy, or sexual pain. When working with Ashley, relationship and sex therapy will consist of traditional talk therapy and may include psychoeducation, exercises to do at home, cognitive and behavioral techniques, and discussion and resolution of any underlying or co-existing issues between you and your partner.
Ashley supports her clients with an open mind, compassion, and validation. She utilizes attachment-based and cognitive behavioral therapies, the Gottman Method, Relational Life Therapy, and mindfulness techniques as appropriate for each client’s unique struggles. She works actively with her clients to clarify their needs, regularly evaluate their process in therapy, and achieve their goals.
