About Me

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.

If you show up, I'll show up to walk side by side with you in your challenge.

Alena is really supportive and provides incremental approaches to try and solve issues. I find this great for now getting overwhelmed!

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!
