My name is Ashley Lagrange. I hold a Master’s Degree in Counseling Psychology from Temple University in Philadelphia, PA and am also a certified K-12 School Counselor in the state of Pennsylvania. I have experience with a combination of youth work and school-based counseling, as well as with Queer and Trans Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (QTBIPoC) population.
As a therapist, I work mostly with transitional age youth (16-24) and up and the LGBTQIA+ community. My therapeutic approach uses a humanistic and ecological approach to discuss topics like: depression, anxiety, racial trauma, gender identity, sexual orientation, grief, and ableism.
As a clinician, I seek to guide and hold space for folks as they go through their own journey towards self-awareness, accountability, and actualization. For example, I adapt to each client’s capacity, but frequently provide homework or encourage extra work outside sessions for the client to further engage with the work. Above all, I like to remind clients that therapy can be adapted to what honors their individual experience, energy, and emotions.
Their politics and Praxis include all forms of Liberation for communities impacted by various systems of oppression. Working with a Social Justice oriented approach, influenced heavily by the identities they hold, Ashley seeks to guide and hold space for folks as they go through their own journey during difficult times.
