Ashley is a recent and special addition to the Shift family. As a McGill graduate, one of the most meaningful times in Ashley’s life was her time spent earning her degree. She has a strong appreciation for the difficulties and challenges presented by university life because, well, she can relate!
Understanding the things your brain is doing (and the things you don’t even realize your brain is doing) is key in overcoming challenges like this. Therapy didn’t make me feel “less sad” or “less lonely”. It wasn’t about fixing damage that had been done, it was about completely rebuilding so that I had a new, strong foundation to move forward with.
