Ashley Nestler, MSW

Certified Dialectical Behavior Therapist

Certified Crystal Healer

Life Coach


My name is Ashley Nestler, MSW and I am a survivor of Major Depressive Disorder, Quiet Borderline Personality Disorder, multiple eating disorders, and Complex PTSD. Following years of trauma including sexual and emotional abuse, bullying, and harassment, I found myself in the midst of a severe mental health crisis. Finding myself with nowhere to go but up, I have had to rebuild my life by facing my trauma and discovering my true identity. Through this ongoing process, I am rediscovering my personal power and drawing on my inner light to create a life that I love; a life where I can help people like you rise from your past and embrace the full and beautiful life that you deserve.


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.
