Ashley M. Barrera, MS, LMFT

My Approach

      I believe that all individuals, couples and families possess a unique set of skills and tools through which they can achieve a healthy, happy and fulfilling life. Accessing these tools and applying them in life can be a more challenging process which can create dissatisfaction in life and relationships. As a therapist, I see my role as that of helping to guide individuals, couples and families through the process of identifying and harnessing the power of their strengths so that they may achieve satisfaction and fulfillment from life.

      My approach to therapy is aimed at supporting you through the process of identifying and reaching your goals in life and your relationships while simultaneously honoring who you are as an individual, couple and/or family. I practice through the use of a systemic lens which means I incorporate individual, relational, familial, social, and cultural influences and factors into the therapeutic process.

      In particular, I use the following therapeutic approaches:

  • Solution-Focused Therapy
  • Narrative Therapy
  • Bowenian Therapy
  • Contextual Therapy
  • Structural Therapy
  • Feminist Therapy
  • Relationship Empowerment Therapy
  • Gottman Method
