About Me

Welcome! We all have a journey towards wholeness and healing in this life. The goal is to be strengthened through this journey and to feel empowered. That is where I come in—my primary focus when working with clients is to help clients see their own internal strengths and listen and reconnect with their inner wisdom while working to heal hurts, trauma and addictions.

I am a License Clinical Social Worker in the state of Missouri. I specialize in working with individuals who have had to endure difficult life circumstances and traumas. I have worked within the private practice setting, along with working in psychiatric hospital settings, collegiate settings. My extensive experience includes working with clients who are experiencing grief and loss, active suicidal and/self-harm ideation, having regular panic attacks, struggling with daily depression and anxiety, having difficulty overcoming addictive patterns within their lives due overwhelming stress and working with clients who have Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.

When providing therapeutic support, I use an individualized approach that best meets my client’s personal goals for investing in therapy. I am a trauma specialist who also has extensive training and experience in Dialectical Behavior Therapy and Mindfulness. I come from a strengths-based perspective and actively work with clients to help them feel increased worth, confidence and motivation to achieve goals. I strive to come alongside clients to help them to see their value, worth and to help bring restoration, healing and hope.

I am dedicated to working diligently with my clients to provide quality support and to equip them with the necessary tools to help facilitate positive growth, change & healing. I offer phone sessions, video sessions and live chats on a weekly basis that includes early mornings, weeknights and weekends.

Written by H.I. on Jan 05, 2019 after counseling with Alexandra for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, anger management, coping with life changes, and adhd

I think she is very nice and pays attention to what I'm saying. She has helped me out tremendously with calming down and giving myself slack. I've cleaned a lot of my house and am doing better at work and in my relationships with family and friends.

Written by A.B. on Dec 28, 2018 after counseling with Alexandra for 3 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, and intimacy-related issues

She is amazing. She shows genuine cover and is amazing about just listening to let me get things off my chest. She validates what I am feeling and has been very helpful in helping me set boundaries, goals and clear expectations on how to handle what I am going through.
