WHY GREENWELL PSYCHOLOGY & CONSULTING WAS CREATED:
At some point in our lives, most of us face co-occurring physical, professional, and psychological challenges, and yet the systems for getting support are rarely integrated. As a healthcare provider and family member, it was painful to watch loved ones struggle to navigate a complex, often frustrating medical setting where despite considerable investment, they felt like a number lost in the system. Family members and healthcare providers often find themselves negotiating different, but equally difficult care dilemmas. These experiences solidified my commitment to providing high-quality, collaborative services that address intersecting health concerns while prioritizing the client’s unique goals and values. Greenwell Psychology & Consulting was founded in 2020 to enable clients to reclaim their sense of vitality when facing chronic stress, trauma, and medical challenges. We offer treatment as well as consultation and community trainings that work to improve systems of care.
DR. Ashley Greenwell
As the bicultural daughter of a mother from Mexico and a Kentucky-born father, I’ve long been drawn to understanding and harmonizing diverse perspectives and philosophies. Immersing myself in the study of ethics and the psychology of health has allowed me to translate my personal goals of alleviating suffering into a professional practice.
As a practitioner, I deeply value the role of science, compassion, and the client’s own instinctual wisdom. My pursuit of continual learning inspired me to move around the country, studying at the University of Washington (BS), University of California (PhD), the National Center for PTSD in Boston and more recently with the Mayo Clinic to more fully integrate the physical and psychological domains of health. I engage collaboratively with a range of medical disciplines to build more cohesive treatment plans. In our work together, we may use a range of evidence-based trauma treatments (PE, CPT, DBT, EMDR, IFS) and Health Psychology approaches (ACT, Motivational Interviewing, Gut-Directed Hypnotherapy). You can learn more about my background and training here.
I am also committed to increasing access to quality healthcare, offer services in Spanish, and have sliding fee options. In addition to providing therapy for over 15 years, I teach at the University of Utah and provide expert consultation services to approach life’s difficult decisional crossroads and moral dilemmas with greater clarity and skill.
