My name is Ashley Nestler, and I am a survivor of Major Depressive Disorder, Quiet Borderline Personality Disorder, and Complex PTSD.  Following years of trauma including sexual and domestic abuse, bullying, and harassment, I found myself in the midst of a severe mental health crisis.  Having nowhere to go but up, I rebuilt my life by facing my demons and rediscovering my true identity. Through this process I had to reclaim my personal power and draw on my inner light to create a life that I love; a life where I help people like you rise from the ashes of your past towards a more brilliant tomorrow through The Ignite and Rise Academy!

Throughout my recovery, I felt a strong calling to help men and women like me who want help navigating life, but also want to have control over their emotions, build more positive relationships, and live their lives with conviction.  It is because of this that I have made it my mission to help you discover your personal power and take control of your mind, body, and spirit. I am here to assist you in reclaiming your power, while also equipping you with the skills to take back your life following destructive events, thoughts, or a mental health crisis and/or diagnosis. I am a firm believer that we are all precious, and each of us brings a light to the world. I look forward to helping you discover your light so that you can rise like a Phoenix from the ashes into the life that you deserve.

People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.
