Have you searched the Internet endlessly with search terms like: “am I the narcissist?”, :what does narcissism look like?” or “how to escape the narcissist?” or even “what is the difference between a malignant, covert and or pathological narcissist?”

You Might Feel
Life has you stuck, or you are in a space that feels mentally, emotionally, or spiritually draining. You are the person who always wanted a full life, one where you had places to be and things to see; a life you happily shared with your loved ones. But today…
You barely manage to get through your days, and at the end of them, you’re exhausted and can barely remember what happened for the last 12 hours. You seem to exist to make others happy, but happiness feels elusive to you; you’re always chasing it but can never capture it. When you look around others are enjoying life and you feel defeated.
You know something is off because you didn’t always feel anxious, depressed, or overwhelmed, but you cannot figure out what triggered these feelings. You feel like something is missing, and often feel as if you are watching yourself go through the motions of life instead of actively living and enjoying it. You are tired of “faking it” and you want to be you again. I get it!
How I can help
EMDR Therapy offers a safe space to explore your history and find the things that may not be working well in your present, and why. It is a healthy and self-caring way to address your past, get situated in the present and look forward to your future. You will learn better ways to handle your thoughts, feelings, relationships, home and work life.
I offer empathic listening, supportive reflection and work as your guide. Together we will focus on your strengths and utilize coping skills to help keep you grounded in the present. I have a direct approach coupled with a kind demeanor, and I will often use humor to support you as we overcome challenges together throughout your EMDR journey.
Bonita Ashe, LPCC
I am a licensed therapist with what seems like a lifetime of experience in the helping professions.
What you can expect when working with me is genuine compassion and an unprecedented “realness”. I don’t believe in beating around the bush, your mental wellness means too much to me. With that said, I am very light-hearted with a laid back and fun style. You may come into therapy feeling isolated, broken, and even feeling dissociated from self. It is my role to walk alongside you until you feel supported, whole and present.
