Ashley Yost

Old Town & Virtual

I am a dedicated and compassionate Limited License Professional Counselor (LLPC) who graduated with a Bachelor’s of Science in Psychology from Michigan State University and received my Master’s in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Antioch University. I completed my internship at a nonprofit organization while living in North Carolina, where I worked with kids and teenagers, along with their family members, in an intensive in-home setting. During this time, I encountered a range of cases, from those who suffered from acute traumas to those who had been experiencing trauma for years.

I am passionate about delivering high-quality mental health care to children and adolescents using evidence-based practices tailored to each child’s needs and strengths. I strive to show up as my authentic self and believe people thrive when they feel genuinely seen and heard. My dedication lies in creating a safe and supportive environment for kids and teens to explore and address their mental health concerns.

With a client-centered approach, I modify my interventions to meet the unique needs of each child or adolescent, fostering a collaborative and empowering therapeutic relationship. My empathetic nature and commitment to ongoing professional development ensure that I stay informed about the latest advancements in the field.

My goal is for each child and teen to experience positive change, fueled by the transformative power of someone taking the time to engage in their world. I believe that every child and adolescent deserves a chance to heal, and I would be honored to walk with them along that journey.

Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with friends as well as relaxing with my two pups.
