I am a Licensed clinical social worker with over twelve years of experience in social work and care management aimed to assist individuals in meeting their goals and objectives.
I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety and especially enjoy helping individuals and families through transitions in life. I have spent several years working with families around caregiver support, dementia, and care management helping families navigate complex systems.
My counseling style is to utilize a strengths based prospective, CBT, motivational interviewing and most importantly, meeting clients where they are.
I like to set small, attainable goals with clients. I like to search for the positives.

I like talking with Alena. She's great!
Alena is really supportive and provides incremental approaches to try and solve issues. I find this great for now getting overwhelmed!
Alena has been a great support point and I would encourage anyone to reach out. This has been a wonderful experience.
My counselor was understanding and empathic towards my situation and circumstances.
Alena has been a joy to work with, especially during a very uncertain time in my life. In a short period of time, we were able to establish trust and get to work. Alena asks great questions and offered ideas for some self-work I could do, when I was ready. I have only worked with her for a short time but I am confident that given a regular cadence of communication, whether messaging or video calling, it would be easy to build a relationship and continue growing through therapy. Highly recommend Betterhelp and Alena!
