About Ashton Jimenez, MS, LPC-S

Ashton Fisher Jimenez, M.S., LPC-S has spent her career supporting couples, families, and individuals attending therapy in Waco and Central Texas as they work to improve their relationships with themselves and others. She knows the effort it takes to set time aside to prioritize your mental health and healthy relationships by accessing counseling services and works to break down barriers to engaging in the counseling process. 

By offering 100% virtual counseling services across Texas, Ashton loves that she can make therapy accessible to more people. Through telehealth, couples and individuals are able to save on travel expenses and time, are prevented from having time away from other important relationships and responsibilities, and are able to access counseling from a space that feels comfortable to them without sacrificing clinical care or expertise. Life is busy and virtual therapy may be one way you create ease as you embark on your therapy journey. 

Ashton is a Certified EMDR Therapist. EMDR Therapy is one of the most effective therapies to utilize when there is has been a past event that was traumatic, confusing or upsetting and keeps the client feeling stuck as they move through life in the present. Ashton also utilizes CPT, Person Centered Therapy, IFS, and ACT in her sessions with clients allowing her to cater to the needs of her clients and their goals. Ashton enjoys supporting individuals who are going through difficult life transitions, struggling in their parenting, experiencing the loss of an important relationship, or feeling disconnected in their romantic relationship. 

Ashton has training in Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFT) and Gottman Method Couples Therapy. She enjoys assisting couples who are struggling to communicate, feeling unhappy or misunderstood in their relationship or are struggling to cope with life changes like parenting, grief and loss, difficult life circumstances, or past hurts and betrayals.

Meet Mindy Bell, MS, LPC Associate
Supervised by Ashton Jimenez, MS, LPC-S

Have you ever found yourself thinking, "Am I the only one feeling this way?" or "Does having these thoughts make me a bad person?" What about questioning how others seem to manage while you feel like you're falling apart? I want to assure you that you're not alone in these thoughts and feelings. My goal is to help you find peace even during challenging situations or crises and to help you know what to do when difficult emotions arise.

With 13 years of experience in the school setting, 11 of which were as a school counselor, I've addressed various issues affecting youth, including anxiety, depression, self-harm, childhood trauma, family and relationship challenges, and self-esteem. I am particularly passionate about working with those who have family members struggling with addiction.

 

In my role as a counselor, I will help you become more comfortable with your emotions by changing how you perceive and process them. Additionally, I aim to equip you with the skills you need to navigate and overcome your challenges.
