New Child and Play Therapy Counselor at Ashley Waknine

Ashley Waknine Counseling and Coaching is delighted to welcome Natalie Myers, RMHCI as our new Child and Play Therapy Counselor!


Ashley Waknine Counseling and Coaching is Boca Raton-based and founded by Ashley Waknine, LMHC. We are a team comprised of mental health counselors and coaches who specialize in supporting children, teenagers and young adults with mental health conditions such as Anxiety, Depression, ADHD and Trauma. We also provide coaching activities for Stress, Overwhelm, Life Transitions, Self-Esteem, Academic Excellence and Confidence.


“Young people today seem to have it all. Infinite ways of connecting, more educational opportunities and freedoms than ever before. But the truth is that many young people struggle. It is important that we be able to respond to their challenges with non-judgment and authenticity. We help young people bounce back and equip them with the skills and resources to overcome anything.” said Ashley Waknine, LMHC, founder of Ashley Waknine Counseling and Coaching. Ashley is very pleased to welcome Natalie Myers, a Registered Mental Health Counselor Intern in the state of Florida to the team!


Natalie possesses a master’s degree in clinical Mental Health Counseling and has been an academic coach for 5 years. Natalie’s approach to both counseling and coaching is Adlerian. The Adlerian approach allows children and teens to engage in a therapeutic process that values them as creative, resourceful, and whole; while using non-directive skills and techniques to engage & empower clients to change their cognitive, affective, behavioral, and relationship pattern. However, Natalie prides herself in creating a meaningful therapeutic or coaching relationship with her clients, by learning their likes and dislikes and incorporating it into the sessions. Additionally, Natalie is also trained in the following modalities: Play therapy, Trauma- Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), Solution Focused, and Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT).


I am so excited to have Natalie on my team. She has such a kind and caring personality and puts so much effort into her sessions with her clients. It has been absolutely wonderful working with her and I could not have asked for a better addition to the practice!” - Ashley Waknine, LMHC.
