Hello, my name is Ashley Gori and I am a licensed Clinical Social Worker. My goal is to provide a safe environment to help you meet your full potential. I am excited to be an advocate and aid in your mental health journey!
I graduated w/ my masters in social work at Fordham University (New York/CT). I have lived in Florida for two years as a registered clinical social worker and provided individualized therapy. I have extensive experience in a variety of mental health issues such as anxiety, depression, mood disorders, children/parenting issues and trauma informed-care. During my masters program I worked at a Substance Abuse outpatient clinic to help treat co-occurring disorders. In addition, I was a counselor at an inpatient residential treatment facility where I worked with female teens on emotional regulation/behavioral issues.
My counseling style is an individualized holistic approach which is providing support that looks at you as a whole person. I have passion and experience in health/fitness and love to incorporate it into treatment. I utilize cognitive behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing, strength-based and solution-focused approaches. I act as a soundboard to build rapport with clients to fully understand the external/internal stressors that are contributing to a variety of mental health issues. I specifically inform and provide my clients with coping skills, radical acceptance and techniques to aid in changed thinking patterns which can allow for a growth mindset.
Thank you for taking the time to read my bio, I am happy that you are reaching out for help. You are not alone and I commend you for your brave step towards change.
