|Dr. Ashley Norwood-Strickland|
Ashley Norwood-Strickland has been with Clinical Psychologists, P.C. since September 2017. She is a self-proclaimed football fanatic and band nerd. She was a part of the Auburn University Marching Band during college and went on to become Drum Major in the 2005-2006 season and again for the 2006-2007 season when she was the first female Head Drum Major in the band's history. Although she loves music, psychology was her passion and she graduated from Auburn with a B.A. in Psychology and a minor in Music in 2007.
Ashley completed a Master's in Clinical Psychology from Mississippi State University in 2011. While in Mississippi, she completed clinical placements at the Golden Triangle Recovery Center, a community-based intensive outpatient substance abuse treatment center, and at the North Mississippi Medical Center Behavioral Health Center, an inpatient psychiatric unit for adults with serious mental illness. Also at MSU, Ashley was involved in research focused on forensic psychology and juror bias in rape cases as well as attachment patterns and disorders in children. Through her work with these diverse populations, Ashley realized that she could synthesize her interests in forensics, attachment, and trauma and came back to Auburn to complete her doctorate in Clinical Psychology from Auburn University in 2017. While earning her PhD, Ashley completed clinical placements in her focus areas at the Auburn University Psychological Services Center, Mt. Meigs ABSOP Program (treatment and assessment), and the Central Alabama Veterans Healthcare System (CAVHCS). Coming from a long line of decorated war veterans, Ashley considers it a privilege to have concluded her clinical training at an APA approved internship at CAVHCS. Here she completed rotations in Primary Care/Health Psychology, Outpatient Mental Health Clinic, Chronic Pain/Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation Psychology, and Military Sexual Trauma.
She is currently accepting clients on a limited basis and sees school-aged children, adolescents, college students, adults, and couples with a variety of presenting concerns. Ashley specializes in providing evidence-based treatments for trauma (including PTSD, childhood abuse, and sexual assault), anxiety, attachment disorders, mood disorders, chronic pain, and personality disorders, as well as child behavioral problems. Additionally, she provides a variety of assessment services including immigration hardship evaluations, psychosocial evaluations for adoptive parents, and psychoeducational assessments for ADHD and learning disorders.
Ashley's husband was accepted into graduate school beginning in the fall of 2019 which meant relocating out of state. However, Ashley maintains a part-time clinical caseload with clients at CPPC as she returns to Auburn once a month. As such, she has monthly appointments available, and offers telehealth services following an initial in-person intake.
