Ashley Hodges, MSW, LCSW
In Ashley’s role as a licensed clinical social worker, she works with children, families and adults through times of crisis. She also has experience working with young people who are experiencing anxiety, struggling with school, suffering from ADD or ADHD, are on the autism spectrum, have behavioral challenges, need anger management skill-building, or who suffer from lack of confidence.
She works closely with individuals, as well as small groups, to be a strong advocate and ally for every child and family she works with. Ashley is passionate about the role family function plays in a child’s social development and academic development. As a therapist, she gives children the tools to express themselves constructively and develop the confidence that enables them to be their best self.
Earning her Master’s degree in Social Work with a concentration in school social work from the University of Illinois in Chicago, Ashley began working in the school system in 2009, learning about individualized Education Plans (IEP), 504 Plans, and implementing special education services under the Disabilities Education Act. In her free time, Ashley enjoys traveling, exercising, reading, the outdoors, and spending time with family and friends.
