Counseling for Anxiety & Stress-Management

My name is Kara Ashley-Gilmore, and I provide counseling for anxiety and stress-management in Hendersonville, NC. I know anxiety inside and out–the way only someone who has been there and crawled her way out can understand. The cycle of over-thinking, worry, and panic is exhausting. I understand the effects anxiety, perfectionism, and shame has had on your life, and I want to support you as you make some changes. It’s possible to quiet the inner voice that criticizes everything you do, and it’s possible to feel at peace. I’ve dedicated my life to understanding stress and anxiety, and I offer individual and group counseling to help you get some relief.


When you enter my office, you don’t have to pretend that everything is okay. You have my full attention, and I’ll use every tool in my toolbox to help you, teach you skills to manage your symptoms, and cheer you on as you make progress.


You’re not alone, and you don’t have to do this alone. Contact me to schedule your free, in-person, 30 minute consultation. You can get familiar with the space and the commute, and see if I’m someone you can trust to guide you through this process.
