A note from Ashley Blackett, LMFT –
“Change is hard! But, isn’t the alternative worse? Life can be very challenging and demanding. It can even seem extremely overwhelming. The good news is you don’t have to feel alone. Seeking help is a sign of courage and strength, which I foster in practice. I offer assistance in finding ways to manage your stressors in ways that work for you. Improving self-esteem, learning to cope, and managing emotions is all possible. I work with children, adolescents, and adults as well as relationship issues of all ages. With empathy and understanding, I offer a sense of safety and unconditional positive regard that allows you to feel comfortable enough to build that connection. Let me help you find the answers. I won’t promise it will be easy (therapy rarely is). But I can promise you, it will be worth it.”

Happier Living was a lifesaver for me today. By some miracle I was able to see Dr. Schwartz at the last minute today to help with some pretty big changes in my life recently. She was very kind, attentive, a true professional, but also very fun and relatable!
