Ashley Frendewey, LMSW, CAADC
My goal as a therapist is to help you gain effective coping skills and strategies to achieve your wellness goals whether they are personal or professional. Therapy is a very useful and effective tool to help you be successful in all areas of your life. Coming in for therapy can feel intimidating and scary, I work really hard to make this step as easy as possible. We will move at a pace that is comfortable for you and develop your goals so you can move through and past therapy.
I attended Central Michigan University where I obtained a bachelors degree in Psychology and Family Studies. After working in Head Start as a family service worker, I decided to go back to school and get my Master's Degree in Social Work from Wayne State University. Since graduating with my MSW, I have worked in the field with a diverse client base that includes: survivors of domestic violence, addiction, anxiety, depression, bi-polar, PTSD, trauma, military/veterans, first responders, HPRP clients, and much more. I work with young adults age 17 and up through late adulthood. I have extensive training in addiction, domestic violence, cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, and EMDR. I love working with individuals, couples and families to strengthen their relationships and achieve their goals. I book on the hour and sessions typically last 45 minutes. I look forward to the opportunity to connect and start working on your goals.
