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 as well as the typical challenges that life inevitably brings our way. Additionally, I have worked with a multitude of families struggling with various difficult seasons in life from healing from infidelity to parenting or various dysfunctional patterns that have resulted from various catalysts for the individuals that make up the family system.
On a personal note, I am happily married and have three sons that are 10 months, 11 and 19-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 coaching/engaging/attending various sports, particularly flag football and soccer, playing card or board games to bring out the competitiveness in each of us, or sitting on our back patio enjoying each other's company and talking about the challenges/victories of the day. I also have two dogs (a white pug named Penny and a chihuahua named Marley).
