Aspen Psychotherapy and Sober Coaching

Aspen Psychotherapy and Sober Coaching

Ashley Connolly

Hi, I am a licensed psychotherapist and professional sober coach! I see clients in private practice at my office on Mill St. and also see clients virtually.  I have over 17 years of experience providing mental health care in the valley both in private practice and through a variety of non-profit organizations. In my work as a therapist and sober coach, I like to focus on the principles of Positive Psychology, where the goal is not only to eliminate mental health symptoms but to optimize and work on solutions to live your best life.  I am in long term recovery and support people that are new to sobriety, are sober curious or in recovery but are seeking help for mental health issues.  

I am a mom of two dynamic boys, a runner, a yogi, a skier, and a lover of our beautiful valley! 

More about my therapy practice below...

I work collaboratively to help you become aware of your strengths and start finding solutions that will enhance your life and relationships. I believe within each of us lies the solution to any life challenge, and it is my role to help you uncover your innate wisdom and inner strength to heal. My style of therapy can be described as compassionate, collaborative, holistic, and interactive. We will work together to develop your goals for therapy, and my approach will be tailored to your specific situation and your personality. Perhaps most importantly, I provide a safe and empathic environment to explore your thoughts and feelings.

Like most things in life, therapy only works to the extent that you are willing to put time, energy and focus into the process.  The first session is primarily an information gathering session, and while some clients report immediate relief after the first session, many find it takes some time for the positive impact of therapy to manifest in their lives.  I ask clients to consider trying at least three sessions before making a judgment about the therapy. I often give homework assignments and find that clients that make the effort to complete the homework improve at a significantly higher rate.


What brought us to this valley

I was born and raised in Aspen and Snowmass Village.  I returned to the valley in 2006 and immediately got involved with the local mental health community.  I am raising my two children here and am involved locally with the schools, serving as an active PTO member at the elementary school for many years. My current community focus is both as a professional and a board member for the Pitkin County Library and for the non-profit mental fitness organizaiton, Headquarters.
