"Your relationship with yourself sets the tone for every other relationship that you have."
Ashley Bucci, LCSW-C
Therapist at Bethesda Counseling Services
Therapy is one of the best self care activities out there and I believe that self care is the key to living a well balanced life. Therapy allows a person uninterrupted and dedicated time to process their thoughts and emotions in an unbiased environment. Whether you are new or seasoned to the therapy world - I applaud you for making this initial step in taking care of yourself.
I have been working with Bethesda Counseling Services since March 2018 and specialize in working with adults who are looking for clarity in dealing with life transitions and relationship issues. I also have a passion for working with couples and folks needing infertility or postpartum support. I also have a background working in a school setting and in a behavioral health medical and social service facility.
My approach allows for a path of treatment that is unique to you and your goals. I work with clients to try and bring the unconscious to the conscious, recognize recurrent relationship patterns, and to try to bring awareness to underlying human behavior, feelings, and emotions.
When I am not in the therapy room, I enjoy spending time outdoors - in both the mountains and by the ocean. I am also an avid skier, enjoy photography, and love to travel.
