What We Treat:

Dr. Ashton is a licensed psychologist with a specialization in anxiety disorders who provides evidence-based Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) for adult populations in the office or via telepsychology. She will sometimes make an exception and see older teens for at least a consultation. Dr. Ashton received her doctorate of psychology from Spalding University in 2001 and completed her postdoctoral training in anxiety disorders at St. Louis Behavioral Medicine Institute, a nationally-acclaimed treatment center for anxiety disorders and an affiliate of St. Louis University, where she remained on as a staff psychologist for 11 years.

Dr. Ashton offers anxiety treatment for the full spectrum of anxiety disorders, from mild to severe, to include: Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), Panic Disorder with and without Agoraphobia, Social Anxiety Disorder, Generalized Anxiety Disorder, and Specific Phobias such as fear of flying, needle and medical phobias, and paruresis (bashful bladder).  She utilizes exposure based therapy and exposure and response prevention (ERP) techniques.  Evidence-based treatment with CBT is considered short-term therapy and usually only requires about 8-10 visits for most cases due to its high levels of success.  If someone has been in treatment for more than a month or two without some relief from his or her symptoms, there's a good possibility that he or she is not receiving evidence-based treatment. PLEASE NOTE: ***Dr. Ashton is ONLY accepting panic disorder & OCD patients at this time.***

As depression is often the result of anxiety wearing a person out and down, she also provides CBT treatment for depression. She is trained in Habit Reversal Therapy (HRT) to treat Trichotillomania.
