The Important Thing Is, You're Here
Hi, I’m Ashlyn Baker, the owner and founder of AshTree Counseling Center. I am autistic and part of the LGBTQ+ community. I specialize in working with neurodivergent folks (or people who think they might be neurodivergent).
I provide an inclusive space that will create room for processing and offer a deeper understanding of behaviors and feelings.
I provide neurodivergent and LGBTQ+ affirming virtual counseling services to NC

Be Seen & Heard
for who you are, as you are
I am a firm believer that healing happens within the context of meaningful relationships. Just as many of our wounds occur in damaging relationships, healing occurs in empathetic and non-judgmental relationships, which is why you will always find acceptance just as you are at AshTree Counseling Center. My approach to your healing begins with demystifying the counseling process and taking our time getting to know one another.
What is Neurodiversity?
Neurodiversity is a word that explains how people’s brains work. We’ve been taught to believe that there’s such a thing as a “normal” brain. That’s not true. All brains are unique, and we have different names for different categories of brains.
How Does Therapy for Neurodiversity Work?
I provide you with a safe, affirming space that allows you to learn about who you are. I provide education on how your brain processes the world around you. My goal? To see you living a happy, fulfilled, and joyous life.
1. Schedule an initial consultation
2. We will have a brief consultation
3. We will decide if we are a match
The most important relationship that can be repaired in therapy is the relationship you have with yourself. You spend more time with yourself than anyone else. Why not love that person?

If you're nervous about virtual therapy,
Let's Put You At Ease
It’s completely normal to be feeling nervous about starting virtual therapy. How will we connect? Will I be getting as much support as I would in person?
Moving something so personal to an online space can feel intimidating, but online therapy has been shown time and time again to be effective. The same connections that happen in person can happen in virtual counseling with the added benefit of cutting out travel and getting to sit in a space where you already feel comfortable.
