Ashley Nestler, MSW

CEO of Releasing the Phoenix & The Ignite and Rise Academy

My name is Ashley Nestler, and I have my master’s of social work with an emphasis in mental health, as well as certifications in mental health coaching, art therapy coaching, crystal healing, dialectical behavior therapy, and bibliotherapy. I utilize my eclectic variety of skills to inform my mental health practice and provide my clients with the best skills to be able to manage their mental health.

Apart from my professional experience, I am a survivor of Schizoaffective Disorder, Borderline Personality Disorder, Fibromyalgia, Anorexia Nervosa, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Generalized Anxiety Disorder, and Complex PTSD. I utilize my personal experiences with my mental health to inform my work.

My life's purpose is to help individuals like you who want help navigating life, but also want to have control over your healing process. My mission is to help you embrace your true identity and improve your relationships with others. It is because of this that I have made it my mission to help you discover your personal power and take control of your mind, body, and spirit. I am fighting the stigma that surrounds mental health in today’s society while teaching you how to reclaim your life following destructive events, thoughts, or a mental health crisis and/or diagnosis.

I look forward to helping you discover your light so that you can rise like a phoenix and conquer not only everything that comes your way, but also conquer yourself.
