Meet Ms. Ashton Cobb

Ashton Cobb, MS, LPC

Hello, my name is Ashton

My journey to become a LPC (Licensed Professional Counselor) and MFT (Marriage and Family Therapist) started when I was in Preschool. I know, preschool is one a very specific time/age, and two an interesting period to begin thinking about counseling. However, when I was that age, I experienced my biological parents getting a divorce. I do not remember much about that time; however, I know for sure it has impacted me in more ways than none.

As I got older and became more aware of the impact, I wanted to be in a field where I can help others who were in similar situations as my parents or even children who were like me. By the time I got into college I knew I wanted to study Psychology, but the most confusing part was figuring out what I wanted to do as a living. As I sat in my classes I began to feel
a draw toward Marriage and Family Therapy. My senior year was when I finally decided to choose MFT.

As the years went by I was able to work with Rahab Ministries (Non-profit for women who were sex trafficked), Department of Youth Services (DYS), and a number of other couples.

From my experience with my own family and others, I become interested in the structure and support systems that families provide to each individual person. Families, at times, are the cornerstone to how we interact and communicate throughout our lives.

I have experience working with adolescents and adults in various settings. I have experience working in juvenile corrections and private practice serving individuals, couples, and families in varying stages of life. I have helped individuals, couples, and families improve boundaries, communication structure, and hierarchies within their relationship. I utilize a solution-focused strength-based approach to help improve communication, empathy, understanding, and openness.

I am looking forward to helping you!
