About Grounded & Growing

and Ashley Kuhnau

I have been on a 20-year learning experience that ultimately led to the opening of Grounded & Growing. It was born out of my own personal struggles day to day with chronic pain as well as the growth and motivation to help my patients on a deeper level.


In 2016, I began to look at where life had taken me so far and spent a lot of time in prayer.  I began to wonder if physical therapy was my only purpose. Or was I supposed to do more? Soon after, I had my answer and it’s been fun to see what’s been unfolding ever since. 

One thing quickly led to another and I was immersed in the field of Neuro-Linguistic Programming. I found NLP to be incredibly fascinating! Not long after I discovered Brainspotting and soon was certified and offering these services in tandem to my clients.  In 2023 I also became a Licensed Brain Trainer through Amen University. 


These life-changing tools have the ability to pull you out of a rut and heal your physical and emotional pain. Many think are stuck where they are with no help or no way to get to where they want to go. Why do you feel that way?  I’m here to tell you that you just have to have the tools to know-how, and that’s where I come in.

This is an exciting time in your life! Why? Because there is hope! Science is growing and our knowledge of the brain/body connection is far deeper than we once knew.  You have the ability to change your brain!

Life Purpose Coaching

The word purpose can conjure different things for different people and it is important to identify what your own definition is. Life Purpose Coaching gives you the tools and mechanisms needed to move beyond your fears and the beliefs that hold you back so you can actualize your life’s purpose. If you’re looking to live a purpose-driven life in an overwhelming world, I would love to support you along the way.

Neuro-Linguistic Programming

We all go through life with certain thought patterns that keep us stuck or repeat themselves. Many times we have adapted a way of being and behaving that harms us. Maybe it’s pessimism, low self-esteem, self-doubt or procrastination. These patterns limit us and can even be life-threatening in extreme cases. Neuro-Linguistic Programming is a tool that can help you make the changes you want.


Brainspotting is not a therapy, but a powerful tool that reaches the depth of your subcortical brain. It unlocks the language and reasoning behind issues you are struggling with. It can be used as a standalone approach for challenges and repetitive behaviors; or it can be used as a skill for self improvement and personal development and growth. Try it today to see how this powerful tool is being adopted by many service providers around the world.
