Meet Your Therapist
Bonita Ashe, LPC-NCC
I believe pain is powerful, but it can also be purposeful. Our goal is to figure out how your experiences shaped who you are today – Me.
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.
Believe me, I know what it’s like to think no one understands you, and when you feel as if you’re falling, no one is there to catch you. Those days are over. As we work together utilizing EMDR, you will begin to view the world, the people around you and yourself differently. Therapy will allow you to see colors again instead of viewing everything in black and white. You will smell the flowers, rainwater, and your favorite cologne once more. And you will just feel better!
Your treatment plan will revolve around your specific goals. We will talk about your childhood, your family dynamics, and what specific event was your breaking point. And then we will structure our therapy around where you ultimately want to be. YOU take an active role in your treatment plan, goals and outcome.
How I work: I am certified through the EMDR International Association, and a consultant in training. I believe EMDR Therapy can successfully treat many, if not all, presenting issues. I have advanced EMDR Trainings in the Flash Protocol, Ego State Therapy, Attachment Focused Therapy, Structural Dissociation, and EMDR 2.0. I am licensed in Ohio, License # C.2203936.
You can call my assistant Tika, but she does growl a lot; so perhaps just complete the initial screening form. I look forward to working with you!
