My name is Ashley Nestler, MSW and I am a survivor of Schizoaffective Disorder, Quiet Borderline Personality Disorder, Fibromyalgia, multiple eating disorders, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Generalized Anxiety Disorder, and Complex PTSD. Following a traumatic past including sexual and emotional abuse, bullying, and harassment, I found myself in the midst of a severe mental health crisis. Finding myself with nowhere to go but up, I have had to rebuild my life by facing my trauma, accepting multiple mental illness diagnoses, and discovering my true identity. Through this ongoing process, I am rediscovering my personal power and drawing on my inner light to create a life that I love; a life where I can help people like you rise from your past and embrace the full and beautiful life that you deserve.

My life's purpose is to help individuals like you who want help navigating life, but also want to have control over your healing process. My mission is to help you embrace your true identity and improve your relationships with others. 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 fighting the stigma that surrounds mental health in today’s society while teaching you how to reclaim your life following destructive events, thoughts, or a mental health crisis and/or diagnosis.

I look forward to helping you discover your light so that you can rise like a phoenix and conquer not only everything that comes your way, but also conquer yourself.

*I am certified in Dialectical Behavior Therapy. My coaching methods follow the main principles of DBT: Mindfulness, Emotion Regulation, Interpersonal Effectiveness, and Distress Tolerance.

*I utilize New Age Spirituality and crystal therapy to incorporate metaphysical healing and to assist in the exploration of one's purpose.

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.
