Ashley Huddleston, LCSW
Ashley believes that all families deserve happiness and secure relationships and enjoys nothing more than sharing her knowledge of children’s development and working in partnership with families to decrease distress and improve relationships. Ashley received her MSW from UC Berkeley and is a certified Infant-Family and Early Childhood Mental Health Specialist. Ashley has received extensive training in early childhood development and family trauma.
She uses evidenced based therapies including Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT), Child Parent Psychotherapy (CPP) and Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) to reduce difficult/concerning child behaviors and promote more secure and peaceful relationships. She has worked successfully with biological parents, step-parents, teachers, and relative/foster caregivers.
In addition to her therapy practice, Ashley is a dedicated supervisor, trainer, consultant and volunteer. She has provided training and consultation to mental health professionals, teachers, child welfare staff and home visitation programs. She recently contributed to Arkansas’ Strategic Plan for Early Childhood Mental Health, led a state project to improve health outcomes for children ages 0-8 and received the Direct Service Provider Award from the Arkansas Association for Infant Mental Health in 2014.
Ashley recently moved to Portland, OR and is excited to continue her career working with children and families in private practice. In her free time Ashley loves to travel and explore Portland.
