Ashley Franklin, LPC-S
While in the sixth grade, I discovered Dr. Drew and became fascinated with the idea of “talking to people”. The premise that people would share their thoughts and feelings to a stranger captivated me. This fascination with counseling/psychology evolved while attending Texas Southern University and led to me ultimately obtaining a Masters of Art in Marriage and Family Therapy from St. Mary’s University.
After relocating to Mississippi, I had the privilege of working in various settings and in 2015 decided to follow my dreams and opened my private practice. I avoided the full time commit of private practice until too many God signs started happening around me. You know those uncomfortable feelings that this is not where you’re supposed to be and the things that were once daunting became easy? Well that was me and now I am here.
My practice name, Live Beyond Existing, was created from hearing stories and my own relatable experiences of allowing life to get the best of us. I explore ways for my clients to find little glimpses of light during dark times, empower them to gain better awareness and control of self, and support them when needing an unbiased ear.
