Ashley Ogilvie

Master of Social Work (Candidate)

Ashley’s approach to therapy is rooted in compassion and empowerment. She believes that each individual has the skills and abilities to overcome life’s challenges, while recognizing that they are often very complex. Following the lead of her clients, Ashley strives to shine light on their strengths while incorporating elements of mindfulness practice and cognitive behavioural therapy. Her goal is to build a trusting and safe relationship with clients that allows for innovation, self-awareness, and self-reflection. 

Ashley has experience with individuals facing anxiety, depression, learning disorders, domestic violence, addictions, and family conflict (including parent-child conflict). She has a particular passion for working with children and youth toward spiritual, mental, physical, and interpersonal wellbeing. Through her own personal journey, Ashley has also developed a passion for Indigenous identity reclamation and reconciling with colonial harms through culture, resistance, and resurgence.

Ashley is a Master of Social Work student at the University of Victoria, where she is  focusing on decolonial social work practices. She holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Criminology with a minor in Psychology, and is also a Certified Personal Trainer.
