I love helping children, teens, and their families stay connected to themselves and each other during the early years. I know every generation says this, but I really do think today’s children have it tougher than most. I enjoy helping everyone navigate those years. I also enjoy helping couples strengthen their relationship.
Whatever brings you in, allowing yourself space to share vulnerable and emotional thoughts can sometimes be tough. Exploring these feelings without being judged can cultivate an opportunity to connect, grow, and heal as an individual. With the right structure, the therapy room can be one of the best places to achieve this. My hope is to provide a supportive environment and the tools to reach your goals. I am passionate about offering encouragement, validation, and support that will best suit your needs. While we will work to address the challenges you are facing, we will also dive into your strengths and uniqueness you possess. The experience towards self-discovery and healing is uniquely yours, and I am here to guide you with compassion and understanding every step of the way.
– Ashley McCulloch, MA, AMFT
I received my Bachelors of Arts degree in Psychology from CSU, Chico and my Master of Arts degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Alliant International University.
I have envisioned myself as a therapist since I was a preteen. My journey towards becoming a therapist began with interest in human behavior and admiration for reading. My work within the field has varied and began as an RBT working with individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder and ADHD, through an ABA lens.
Once in graduate school, I transitioned to a local non-profit where I primarily worked with adolescents ages 8 to 17 and couples. The diagnoses of these clients ranged widely and each of them encompassed a unique story. I have been fortunate enough to join the Davis Group where I continue to focus on kids, teens, and couples. I love my job!
I am a California Registered Associate Marriage and Family Therapist (#143155, Supervised by Sean Davis, LMFT #45885).
I am especially good at working with children, teens and couples. I focus on helping:
- Individuals struggling with anxiety and interpersonal relationships
- Children and teens experiencing life transitions, behavioral issues, and daily stressors
- Couples counseling surrounding issues related to betrayal, communication, and expressing emotions
Additionally, I am PCIT certified (Parent Child Interaction Therapy), which focuses on trauma informed care for children & adolescence.
Outside of the therapy room I enjoy various hobbies such as cooking, watching football, and spending time with close friends. My favorite space to enjoy solitude is on the beach, listening to the waves. When I am reading you will most likely find me entrenched with a psychological thriller or exploring various cultures within history.
