Ashley Mader, PhD, LICSW

me2Dr. Mader earned both a Doctorate in Human Sexuality and Master’s in Social Work from Widener University in the Greater Philadelphia area.   She leverages her research on older adults sexuality experiences and extensive knowledge in individual therapy, group therapy, and addiction groups to provide focused private and class-size support.  Her efforts in leading and promoting care within senior centers, nursing homes, assisted living facilities, and at national conferences forged a sex positive approach towards championing sexual health in later life.
