Boaz Office

Ashley L. Garrett,

Ashley L. Garrett, LPC, ED.S., MS, RPT-S, NCC

A note from Ashley: As the Director of Garrett Counseling, my goal is to provide support for our counselors, helping them meet the needs of our community. My approach to supervision is the same as therapy: compassion, accessibility, and accountability. The therapeutic environment should be one where people can explore feelings, behaviors, and attitudes freely. I care about the details. I care about your counselor. I care about your child. I care about you.

A note from Ginger: During difficult times people often need help finding a way to get life back on track. I use concepts of Adlerian Psychology to encourage people to deal with unresolved issues then cognitive behavioral theories to build new, more successful paths to a better future.

A note from Arica: Recognizing the connection between our thoughts and our emotions can help us better understand our actions and ways to simplify unhealthy actions that can keep us from thriving. Better behavioral management skills can increase the amount of successful adults in the future.
