Ashley believes in listening to our bodies so we can better understand the cues and feelings that can lead us to living a more fulfilled life. Integrating mindful practices into her own life and working with clients in the criminal justice system has greatly helped shape her aspirations. 


Ashley's goals include helping individuals with short and long-term treatments to gain relief from symptoms, maintain or improve daily functioning, and improve quality of life by providing an environment that is safe and diverse by using clinical interventions such as: integrative therapy, systems therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, and motivational/open interviewing strategies. 


Ashley also has a desire to integrate holistic approaches that focus on the mind, body, and spirit, along with mindful practices including breath work, guided imagery, and mindfulness meditation.

Congratulations to our current intern Ashley Kirch! 

Ashley is currently a student in the Licensed Professional Counselor Master's degree program through The Chicago School of Professional Psychology.

Ashley has a bachelor's degree in criminal justice and a certification in medical billing and coding.

Reaching out for help is not easy. At OceanHawk Counseling Alternatives you are at home in an environment that is safe and comfortable to begin working through your struggles. Often, many people refrain from looking for help because they feel embarrassed to show what they deem as weaknesses or defects, letting fear of rejection stop them to take the first step. 

Professional counseling is like an intimate talk, assisted by a  caring friend that sympathizes and knows how you feel, but at the same time can maintain the professional objectivity to allow real change. OceanHawk Counseling Alternatives brings you a powerful ally in finding a new path and direction in life.

People looking for counseling are often struggling with troubles that have cropped up in their life. Troubles can be caused by painful relationships, work environments, family problems, health issues, loss of loved ones or simply feeling stuck in an unsatisfactory life. We see people who struggle with difficult life transitions, such as relationship difficulties or divorce, loss, job loss or change of occupation. The emotional symptoms are stress, anxiety, eating disorders, and non-useful anger. We also help those who are struggling with an alcohol or drug addiction as well as the loved ones who are affected.

Our first meeting is focused on carefully understanding the problems that you want to address, and then concentrate on your strengths, abilities, and finding meaning in life. The keystone of our practice is respectful attention to your individual differences, personal culture, and belief system. The result is a safe environment to experiment with applying your strengths to problems in new ways. We believe in results-focused therapy based on a client-centered philosophy, and can help you discover your inner resources to tackle any problem.

People of all races, cultures and orientations are welcome at OceanHawk Counseling.

Be assured... there IS a reason you have found us today. Perhaps you are ready to take that first step to discover a new way of looking at your world. We hope you will take the opportunity to achieve an enhanced life.
