About Me

Hello! My name is Dr. Ashley Carroll-Brown, and I am the owner and founder of Guiding Hope Therapy and Counseling, LLC, which serves teens and young adults in Dallas, Texas and the surrounding areas. I received my bachelor of science in psychology from Louisiana State University in 2007 and continued to pursue my doctorate in counseling psychology from Louisiana Tech University, which I completed in 2012. I have been practicing as a licensed psychologist in Texas since 2013 and have held a license in California since 2015. I have a passion for working with teens and young adults in helping them reach their optimal level of functioning and ovecoming their traumas.


I specialize in empowering teens and young adults to embark on a transformative journey of self-discovery, breaking free from the shackles of past traumas. Through evidence-based techniques, I help them unearth their true potential, fostering resilence, confidence, and a renewed sense of identity. Together, we navigate the path to healing and growth, ensuring that their past no longer defines who they are, but rather becomes a stepping stone toward a brighter future.

I am certified in Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and have training in Cognitive Processing Therapy. Both of these treatments have been heavily researched and found to be very effective in decreasing symptoms and aftereffects of trauma.


I am a member of the following professional associations and organizations:

  • American Psychological Association 

  • Texas Psychological Association

In my free time, I enjoy fitness training, traveling, practicing yoga, baking, reading, cheering for my alumni, the LSU Tigers, spending time with my family and goldendoodle puppy, Teddy!
