Sue Ashe, MS, LCMHC, LCAS-A
My name is Sue Ashe. I earned a Master of Science degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Lenoir-Rhyne University in May 2017. Previously, I was an elementary school teacher and stay-at-home mother. I earned my Bachelor of Arts degree in Elementary Education from Appalachian State University in December 1991. As my children got older, I was inspired to follow my dream of getting my graduate degree. I chose clinical mental health because I love helping people discover their strengths to grow and create a healthy lifestyle.
I am a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor (LCMHC #13331) and Licensed Clinical Addictions Specialist Associate (LCAS-24111). I have experience in working with adults with severe and persistent mental illness, detox and rehabilitation inpatient treatment, and community mental health serving the uninsured and underinsured.
I utilize a Psychodynamic approach to therapy based on the root cause of psychological suffering. Its focus is on self-reflection and self-examination, and the use of the relationship between therapist and patient as a window into problematic relationship patterns in the patient’s life. Its goal is not only to alleviate the most obvious symptoms but to help people lead healthier lives. I incorporate several evidence-based practices such as cognitive behavioral therapy, narrative therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, bibliotherapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, and trauma-focused therapy. I have received continuing education credits in working with the LGBTQIA+ population, grief, PTSD, Harm Reduction, Motivational Interviewing, Domestic Violence, and Human Trafficking.
