Ashley Kranz MS
Approach: I use a solution-focused, along with a behavioral approach that adheres closely with structured Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) in order to help clients, reach their fullest potentials with goals they set out to achieve. I strive to create a non-judgmental space for clients to share their experiences and be their authentic selves throughout the therapeutic process. I am trained in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), DBT-Prolonged Exposure (PE), as well as 15 years plus experience working with adolescents in multiple different settings. I am passionate working with adolescent clients, and with clients who have experienced systemic settings such as Foster Care and Criminal Justice/Corrections. I believe the therapeutic process involves many layers and establishing a core support system with family, peers, and/or others is important while incorporating and respecting cultural components.
Hobbies: My hobbies include running and being active outdoors during the summer (rollerblading, mowing the lawn, and gardening); spending time with friends and family; traveling; listening to music; and being around my animals. In addition, I enjoy cleaning, organizing, watching movies/TV shows, and reading (mysteries are my favorite).
