Ashley is a Registered Psychologist and Certified Grief Recovery Specialist® in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. She is also the Owner and Director of The Grief & Trauma Healing Centre Inc., where she leads a team of heart-centred, compassionate psychologists who specialize in Grief Recovery®. Ashley has a strong mission to empower others to move beyond suffering and discover their true potential and purpose in life.
Ashley’s educational background includes a Master of Science in Marital and Family Therapy from Loma Linda University, California and a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from Concordia University of Edmonton.
Having experienced painful and life-altering losses in her life, including the death of her father, Ashley has a deep compassion and empathy for the mass of emotions that grievers often experience following a loss.
Ashley did not pursue a specialization in Grief Recovery® as a result of her academic or clinical training; it was because she was broken-hearted, and like a majority of others, was ill-equipped to deal with it. By courageously taking the actions of The Grief Recovery Method®, Ashley learned how to complete relationships in her life that ended or changed. Through her own healing, she developed an overwhelming desire to help others move beyond the pain, isolation, and loneliness caused by loss.
The grief recovery method facilitator training is an incredible class. It is practical and can be applied to all types of loss. Ashley was a terrific facilitator. I have renewed sense of hope for the future.09/09/2019

I have been looking for a way to help people, while preparing for my life after retirement. Through the GRM Certification training, I met so many like minded peers, who opened my eyes to the different opportunities to utilize the GRM training. I can't say enough, what a privilege it was to learn with the amazing group we had.08/30/2019

I am a Funeral Director in a rural Ontario, and also on the board of directors for our local Hospice. We have very few resources to help grievers. This training gives me concrete tools and a program that will help our community.05/02/2019
The GRM training was first class all the way. The instructor, materials, class organization and resources are the best I've experienced in my professional life. The Method was transformational both professionally and for me personally and I feel its an essential skill for navigating life in a healthy whole way.05/01/2019
