Service Expertise

What is your mental health treatment philosophy & approach?

With a decade of experience in primary care, I bring a comprehensive approach to psychological wellness. Understanding that mental health is inextricably linked with physical health, I emphasize a holistic perspective in treatment. My philosophy centers on the belief that addressing mental health concerns requires a nuanced understanding of each individual’s overall health and lifestyle. Drawing from my extensive background in primary care, I am adept at identifying and considering underlying physical health issues that may influence mental well-being. I prioritize creating a safe, empathetic space for patients, where their mental health concerns are understood as a part of their whole health picture. My approach is integrative, considering both traditional and innovative treatments to provide personalized care.

Ashley Wicks is very professional and caring. She gives you realistic expectations and lets you know her game plan.
My experience with Ashley Wicks was exceptional. Rarely in my 69 years have I had a healthcare professional treat me with such respect. Ashely gave me a quick but thorough exam that was actually better than my Primary Care physician does….not kidding. She listened intently to what I was saying and advised me clearly and kindly. This was like a “Master Class” in patient relations. Very impressed and very grateful. Highly recommend.
