Ashley Ginoba, LCSW

Philosophy of Care

As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, I have experience working with individuals, adolescents and families. My experiences have allowed me to work in various settings such as acute hospital, outpatient, community mental health, crisis services and employee assistance services. I utilize an eclectic therapy approach consisting of solution-focused brief therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, multisystemic therapy, motivational interviewing and mindfulness techniques.

Increasing our emotional wellbeing is one of the most valuable steps we can take. In today’s society, we tend to prioritize things such as self-image, physical health, relationships, work, finances and personal achievements. If we are not careful, focusing on our emotional health becomes secondary. Whether you are seeking to improve your emotional wellbeing, work-life balance, relationships, life transitions or other specific challenges, counseling can help.

I believe that every individual is the expert of their own lives. Through a therapy relationship we can work together to identify your areas of strength and resiliency to help you overcome your trauma or stress and live a more fulfilling life. Thank you for considering me to walk alongside you to identify changes you can make to accomplish your therapy goals.

Ben Clark, LPC

Philosophy of Care

Ben Clark currently holds a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) license in the Commonwealth of Virginia. With over 10 years of experience supporting adolescents and families as they are managing issues such as depression, anxiety, life transitions, individual, family and personal relationship issues. As an undergraduate, he felt it was important to combine his two passions of psychology and outdoor recreation by completing a specialty double major program in Psychology and Human Services and Recreation Management with an emphasis on Therapeutic Outdoor Recreation. This dynamic path of study served to reinforce his appreciation for people to cultivate an understanding of the importance of their basic needs, environmental needs, sense of security, relationship, emotional belongingness, feelings of esteem, and a sense of ability for growth.

After achieving a M.S. in Professional Counseling, he went to earn a Post Graduate Trauma Certificate. Through this education, and work experience, he has come to appreciate the value in cultivating personal awareness for clients and empowering them to become their own agent of change toward their life mission. His focus is centered around the importance of the therapeutic alliance to ensure a collaborative setting is available for people to feel safe to identify personal problems that they are struggling with and to move forward by recognizing barriers, emotional attachments and challenges they uniquely face. His integrated approach focuses on the use of strength based, cognitive behavioral, mindfulness, solution focused and emotionally focused methods that provide a therapeutic space for creativity, flexibility and awareness that is necessary to best meet the needs of every unique individual and couple.

Recognizing a client’s specific needs and fostering their own growth by recognizing their strengths and providing a forum to recognize how to create effective solutions to address issues in their life is the cornerstone to being able to not just manage, or cope, but to ultimately learn how to thrive. Ben is grateful for the opportunity to be able to sit, listen, support, challenge and encourage everyone to become an agent of change toward the life they know they need and want.

Johanna Lee, LPC

Philosophy of Care

Life presents challenges with the power to help us grow, yet we often get stuck or hurt in the process. Are you currently finding more problems than solutions? Do your thoughts, emotions, and memories lead to pain and poor decisions? Diving inward may be the first step to moving forward. Whether you’re an adult, a teen, or couple—a safe therapeutic space can help you unravel the different factors hindering your ability to break through barriers (e.g. addiction, trauma, relationship issues, mood disorders, poor coping skills, anxiety, etc.). As a veteran, I am also deeply passionate about helping military members and their families with the stressors of PCS, deployment, and other adjustment issues.

I use a collaborative/personalized approach, with aspects of cognitive behavior therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, mindfulness, and motivational interviewing. Therapy cannot be “one size fits all,” and I believe creativity and uniqueness should be celebrated. Past training/experience with substance use disorders, gambling addiction, PTSD, correctional counseling, criminal thinking/behaviors, and dual diagnosis. 

No one deserves to be stuck forever. Let us explore what is possible for you. I offer you a safe, non-judgmental space to take that first step and evidenced-based techniques/guidance to help you on your journey. No problem is too small to come in with. Come as you are, we can work on the rest.

She obtained her Graduate Degree at Howard University in 2009 after many years of working in the field. 

Often times we can become overwhelmed with maintaining a sense of normalcy and control of our lives while internally we may be feeling disempowered and hopeless. Her experience with trauma, depression and anxiety and a willingness to meet people where they stand are key in her desire to help you address the goals you have for yourself. It is hopeful that you will understand the importance of building strong bonds and connections as the foundation to developing and strengthening capacity to address trauma and other challenges in your life. 

What we understand about trauma and stress is that they can impact the physical body, therefore incorporating the entire body in therapeutic process can be an important step to healing. Mind, Body and Movement are key tenants in the healing process. 

As a working mother of three she understands value of time and her desire is to help you achieve the changes you are seeking so that you can be fully present and achieve peace in all aspects of your life.
