Ashley Waddell, LCSW
Founder | CEO | Wellness Consultant
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and a Board Approved supervisor in the state of Virginia with over six years of experience providing therapy to adolescents and adults in a variety of clinical settings. I earned my Master of Social Work from Virginia Commonwealth University, and I am also a Certified 200hr Yoga Instructor. I specialize in treating trauma, specifically with individuals who have experienced childhood emotional and verbal abuse. Additionally, I have experience with treating a wide range of issues including PTSD, anxiety, depression, and ADHD.
I founded Wholistic Alignment Therapeutic Wellness Center to implement my wholistic and strengths-based approach to therapy. Working with me won’t look like a typical therapy session. During our time together, you can expect for me to introduce techniques and strategies such as yoga, breathing exercises, play and expressive arts, and so much more. Through this approach, my goal is to create a safe, nurturing, and most importantly authentic space to begin bringing awareness to the whole being. My goal is that you will be able to repair the disconnect between mind and body caused by trauma, depression and/or anxiety to promote optimal healing and growth.
