Ashleigh Pope, LMSW
Licensed Master Social Worker
I graduated from the University of Kansas with my Masters in Social Work in May 2014 and am a Licensed Master Social Worker (LMSW).
I am a strengths-based therapist, focusing on mindfulness, giving you the opportunity to be still and listen to your own truth. I use my knowledge of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) to help you identify old patterns of thinking that keep you stuck and then help you begin to embrace and create new thoughts to empower you. I am also trained in Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR).
I enjoy learning and meeting people from a variety of cultures, religions, and traditions - I am a learner of life. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family and taking care of the occasional stray animal along with my own pets I have at home.
I enjoy helping people on their journeys toward becoming whole. Healing is a process, and I recognize change can be unsettling. I see my role as guiding hard work in a safe space.
I believe exploration of healthy coping strategies, strength building skills, and enhancing compassionate support systems fosters increased self-confidence and resilience.
