ashleyking_400x400I am passionate about helping mothers who need help transitioning into their new role. As a mother myself, I know how difficult it can be. Between 10 and 20% of all mothers go through postpartum depression and anxiety, while 80% experience the ‘baby blues’. These are the women I most want to help heal so that they can connect with their children and family members and enjoy the first years of their childs life.

As of September 2017, I was enrolled as a full-time student at the University of Wisconsin, working on my Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology. My plan is to continue on to a Master’s program and become a licensed counselor.

Why is this my passion?

I have personal experience with postpartum depression and anxiety. I know it can be difficult some days can be without help. After months of ups and downs and trying to heal myself, I found an amazing counselor who helped me see things in a different light. She completely changed how I felt and dealt with the daily situations a mother is involved in. I want to use my personal experience and schooling to help others the way my counselor helped me.
