"Ashley is kind, caring, and takes the time to get you and want you want for your treatment."
"WHAT AN AMAZING EXPERIENCE! Ashley took the time to evaluate my regimen and EXPLAINED what was actually happening in my body and brain, that my "issues" were not "all in my head". She even drew pictures to make sure I understood what she was saying (lol).
Leaving Ashley's office, I also left the stigma attached to my mental health and wellness."
"I've been seeing Ashley exclusively for 1.5 years now. If you are looking for a mental health professional who takes you seriously, takes the time to explain everything to you and ACTUALLY LISTENS when you talk, then stop reading this and call and ask to make an appt with Ashley Strongwater ASAP. In addition to having incredible bedside manner, Ashley is brilliant. It's obvious that she loves what she does because she is a never ending source of knowledge. She knows virtually everything about virtually every medication, supplement, vitamin, and/or alternative treatment out the and will take the time to explain the science of everything (in plain english) so you understand what is happening in your mind/body. What I love most is that Ashley will always suggest natural/holistic/non-rx remedies (and so many of them have helped me immensely), but she is not one who refuses or is afraid to prescribe medication when it is appropriate. That balance is very important to me as a patient, and Ashley does it better than anyone."
