I am a bilingual Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Missouri with over 7 years experience working with teens, families and adults. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including anger, depression, anxiety, work/life balance, school issues, PTSD, and trauma. I am great at listening and supporting clients to express themselves, problem solve, develop effective coping skills, and brainstorm for better solutions.
My therapy style is client-centered, recognizing that you know yourself better than I do and you are the expert. I am here to facilitate your personal growth and self-reflection. I believe everyone deserves to be treated with dignity and respect unconditionally. I learn from my clients about their unique culture and upbringings. I don't judge you, but will assertively challenge you to work on yourself to reach your goals. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, narrative and other evidence-based interventions. I will tailor our plan to meet your own and specific needs.
Even if we don't get to work together I am glad you are seeking support and I hope you find the right fit for you to achieve your goals.

Alex is amazing! I truly feel listened to and supported during our sessions. Most importantly she challenges me and it's greatly helping me overcome my obstacles.
