Ashley Nestler, MSW

My name is Ashley Nestler, and I am a woman living with 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 had to rebuild my life by facing my demons and rediscovering my identity. Through this process I had to rediscover my personal power and draw on my inner light to create a life that I love; a life where I can help people like you rise from the ashes of your past towards a more brilliant tomorrow! 

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 healing process and improve control over their minds and their 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. My purpose is to assist you in reclaiming your power while fighting the stigma that surrounds mental health in today‚Äôs society, and teaching you how to reclaim 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 for a specific purpose. I am here to help you discover and explore your purpose so that you can live life to the fullest. I look forward to helping you discover your light so that you can rise like a Phoenix from the ashes and conquer not only everything that comes your way, but also conquer yourself.

Do you feel like you are stuck thinking about the past more than you think about the present?
