About Me

Hi! Welcome. I'm so glad you made the effort to reach out for help today. It is a courageous step. I would like to work with you and help you get to feeling better.

I started crisis counseling in 1979 with Cedars-Sinai Rape Response in Los Angeles. A few years later we were responding to victims of all violent crime, not just sexual assault. I attended California State University, Northridge and studied Theatre Arts and Women's Studies. After I graduated I enrolled in Antioch University, Los Angeles and where I earned my master’s degree in clinical psychology. After five years of counseling internships I received my Marriage and Family Therapist license in 1991, the same year I had my daughter.

I moved to the Eastern Sierra part of California which is a rural area and worked for Child Welfare Services for more than twenty years. I have worked for a couple of local non-profits including one for hospice as well as a domestic violence and sexual assault agency. I have also worked for the Bishop Paiute Tribe.

I have enjoyed working with teenagers and helping resolve family conflicts. I am certified in Anger Management, Workplace Bullying and Grief Recovery. I enjoy helping people learn their value and be able to treat themselves with patience and kindness, and well as develop the skills needed for self-comfort and self-calming. I want to assist people in helping themselves to feel better and increase their enjoyment of life. Life is certainly a challenge and we all need help along the way: We are not meant to go through life alone, with no support. We all need a helping hand.

Written by B.L. on Aug 29, 2018 after counseling with Alex for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, family, eating, self esteem, and career

Alex is amazing. She listens and I mean LISTENS! She always gets what I’m going through, it’s uncanny. She is super responsive, soft spoken, and kind. I look forward to our sessions. Even though I’ve barely known her for a week? It seems like she’s known me forever. I highly recommend her. She’s made my life so much happier. God bless her.
