Alex has been a huge help while I have been dealing with some things. She listens and provides great feedback.

More than anything, Alex shows an intelligent understanding of issues I’ve raised. I feel confident in her ability to know where I’m at and with what I’m concerned. She cuts through a lot of the “noise”, and helps me feel justified in my decisions and feelings.
