Professional Summary

Hello! I’m Ashley Denny (she/her) and I am a queer-affirming and gender-affirming therapist. I believe one of the bravest tasks a person can do is begin to understand their own story. I value creating a safe, inclusive, affirming, and empowering space for all my clients.

Sometimes we might feel alone or lost or that no one could possibly understand how we are feeling. We are all unique and have a story to tell, and you deserve to feel better. Therapy is a journey that can open doors to transformation and healing, allow you to explore your identities and relationships, and help you understand your strengths and challenge the things that get in your way as you learn new ways to cope.

My intention is to show up fully for my clients. I take a collaborative approach in which we work together to develop a plan and explore strategies and tools that foster meaningful and long-lasting change. My role is to co-create a space where you feel safe enough to learn, unlearn, challenge, and be challenged while developing a gentle curiosity about yourself. I offer an empathetic, collaborative, and compassionate partnership in which you decide the course of your healing journey. You can expect warmth, humor, and creativity along the way.

I believe that our mental health and well-being are profoundly shaped by our environment, and in particular by systemic oppression and cultural biases. I would be honored to be part of your journey to living authentically according to your values.

Ashley works with teens and adults. She has experience working with anxiety, depression, trauma, life transitions, and LGBTQ+ individuals.
