Dr. Ashley Lowe-Simmons, LCSW-C is a licensed clinical social worker, a certified financial social worker, published author, poet, wife, mother, and servant of God’s people.
In May 2020, Ashley began having "Conversations With A Clinician" about mental health on social media. Her goal was to normalize mental health by debunking the stigmas attached to it. “Conversations With A Clinician” encourages people to identify practical strategies that lead to a life that is stable, secure, and supportive.
Ashley desires to see everyone win. She believes that there is enough in the world for everyone to eat. She stands firm on the scripture Ecclesiastes 11:2 instructing us to invest in more than one venture. It is wise to invest and use the skills that you have been gifted with to create a space for you.
"It is okay to experience challenges with mental health. It is okay to ask for help. It is okay to go shopping for the right mental health provider, or to see a psychiatrist to get medication, if that is where you are on your mental health journey. As long as we as a community are quiet about mental health, we will continue to suffer in silence. You are not alone, you are not crazy, and you can learn skills to cope and maintain your mental wellbeing."
