My name is Ashley Cook Rovira and I have been practicing as a therapist since 2010. I graduated from the University of Texas at Austin in 2008 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Human Development and Family Sciences. From there, I decided to further my education and attended Kansas State University and obtained a Master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy. I am fully licensed in the State of Texas as a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (#201730), a Licensed Professional Counselor (#68241), and a Licensed Chemical Dependency Counselor (#11707). Since graduating with my master’s degree in 2010, I have worked in various settings including residential dual-diagnosis treatment for adolescents and young adults, residential dual-diagnosis treatment for adults, acute inpatient hospitalization, intensive outpatient treatment, and now private practice. I specialize in trauma, codependency, anxiety, shame-reduction, grief/loss, but also have extensive experience working with addiction. While these are my specialities, I have also had extensive training and experience working with adolescents and adults presenting with various mental-health issues, including anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, personality disorders, schizophrenia. Additionally, I have worked with a multitude of families struggling with various difficult seasons in life from infidelity to parenting to other dysfunctional patterns that have created difficulties for the individuals a part of the family system.
On a personal note, I am happily married and have three sons that are 3 months, 10 and 18-years-old, which means I have experience now with each of the parenting stages! In our free time, we are often found doing something fun and active as a family, including going to and sometimes even participating in sporting events, playing games like "Clue", or sitting on a patio enjoying each other's company (if the weather is nice). I also have two dogs (a white pug named Penny and a chihuahua named Marley).
