More About The Ignite and Rise Academy

Ashley Nestler, MSW, is a mental health specialist, bibliotherapist, empowerment coach, author, and the creator of the ignite and rise academy.  She is also a survivor of Schizoaffective Disorder, Quiet Borderline Personality Disorder, multiple eating disorders, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Fibromyalgia, and Complex Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. Following past trauma including sexual and emotional abuse, bullying, and harassment, she found herself in the midst of a severe mental health crisis in 2019. Having nowhere to go but up, she has been working on herself through inpatient programs, partial hospitalization, intensive outpatient programs, and outpatient therapy.  During this journey, she has worked on rebuilding her life by facing her mental illnesses, working through her symptoms, and rediscovering who she wants to be.  Through this process, she has had to reclaim her personal power and draw on her inner light to create a life that she loves; a life where she can help others work on their mental health and improve their lives through self-care.

Throughout her recovery, she felt a strong calling to help individuals like her who want help navigating life, but also want to have control over their emotions, build more positive relationships, and live their lives with conviction. It is because of this that she made it her mission to help others discover their personal power and connect deeper to their mind, body, and spirit.  She is here to assist individuals in reclaiming or discovering their power, while also equipping them with the necessary skills to take back their lives following trauma, destructive events, thoughts, or a mental health crisis and/or diagnosis. She is a firm believer that we are all precious, and each of us brings a light to this world. She looks forward to helping you discover your light so that you can rise like a Phoenix from the ashes of your past into a life that you love!
