Meet the Therapist

Ashley Baker, LCSW

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Illinois and Texas and the founder of Serenity Align Wellness and Counseling. My goal as a therapist is to promote mental wellness by empowerment, psychoeducation, and creating a space for my clients to feel safe, while allowing themselves to release and rebuild. My clients would describe me as authentic, compassionate, and attentive. 

I was born and raised in the South Side of Chicago. I earned my Master of Social Work from UIC Jane Addams College of Social Work and my Bachelors from University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff. I have experience in social services, medical, homelessness, substance use, education, eating disorders, community mental health, and psychiatric settings. On my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family, traveling, being outdoors, and yoga.

It does not mean to be in a 

place where there is no noise, trouble or hard work. But, to be in the midst of those things and still be calm in your heart.
