Alexandra Kerr

LPC, LMHC

About Me

I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in NY, and a LPC-MHSP in Tennessee. I graduated in May 2018 from William James College with my Masters in Clinical Mental Health Counseling, and a concentration in Forensic and Correctional Counseling. I have worked in the areas of mental health and substance use for the past 6 years in a combination of community residential, outpatient, and inpatient settings in the community as well as in correctional settings. I have worked with clients who have a wide range of diagnoses including anxiety, depression, bipolar and other mood disorders, ADHD, PTSD, substance use disorders, and personality disorders. I have a lot of experience helping clients with transitions including starting sobriety, reentry from incarceration, relationship changes, loss and many various other major life changes that can lead to anxiety/depression. I would describe my approach as warm, empathetic, person centered, and solution focused. I will work with you to help you reach your goals and make positive changes in your life. I use an eclectic approach, pulling techniques from many theories including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness, Motivational Interviewing, and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy.

I look forward to working with you!

Written on Nov 14, 2022 after therapy with Alexandra for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, self esteem, and anger management

Alexandra was my first experience with any type of therapy service. She allowed me to be myself, open, and vulnerable at times without judgement. She worked with me in order to find what works best for me because for therapy the "one size does not fit all" mentally does not work. She is well versed in multiple areas that personally struggle in and was able to make an important positive impact on my mental health and well being. Strongly recommend.

Alexandra is very friendly, responds very quickly, and doesn't push you.

Alex has been very helpful to me in utilizing multiple methods during sessions, as well as even assigning homework! She provides excellent resources for use outside of sessions, and checks in with an applicable quote or helpful anecdote at the beginning of every week. I truly appreciate how responsive she is outside of sessions as well, and look forward to my times working with her.

Written on Jul 01, 2022 after therapy with Alexandra for 3 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, trauma and abuse, grief, self esteem, and coping with life changes

Alexandra is always on time, listens to you and seems genuinely sincere and interested. As someone who has had multiple experiences with multiple types of therapy/therapists throughout the years I can definitely tell that she knows what she's talking about. When there are technical issues then she won't just give up after 2 tries, which is also very nice. I highly recommend her when it comes to anxiety, panic attacks, depression, addiction and loss/grief.
Thank you for everything Alexandra. Keep doing what you're doing!

Kind regards,
Gert-Jan, the Netherlands

Sometimes the miscommunication or lack of connection I feel comes from within. I was born a fighter and always will be, but working towards healthier ways of understanding who I am and why I am is my goal, and appears to be my therapist’s goal.

Written on Jun 10, 2022 after therapy with Alexandra for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, and family conflicts

Alexandra has been immensely helpful in establishing a more productive structure to my life. She's an excellent listener who seems like she can deftly adapt her approach to best suit her client's needs. She comes across as grounded and pragmatic, offering useful insights and concrete advice. She's also reliably punctual (and was very patient with my tech issues!). Couldn't recommend her highly enough.

Alexandra has been incredibly helpful throughout the course of our therapy sessions. She helped identify my main issues, is helping me tackle my issues with anger and suggested several helpful apps for other problems. She is a great listener but also does a lot to help, offering great advice with an empathetic but constructive tone. My mental health has improved so much lately and she is really changing my mindset. I would definitely recommend her ❤️ every therapy session is super useful

I have only had 2 sessions with her so far, but those 2 sessions have helped me greatly. She understands the issues that I've been presenting her with and the advice that she has been offering has been second to none. I am looking forward to future sessions as I continue on my road to being a better person.

Alexandra is does a great job of giving her patients/clients the extra push they need to heal, and you can really feel that she cares about you and your well being through providing both actionable steps and immense compassion to help you grow. She has a reliable schedule, and responds in a timely manner and is always reminding you to take care of yourself whenever you've been absent. I am always and forever grateful for her presence; Alexandra is a reliable, compassionate, and wonderful therapist and has helped me tremendously through anxiety and depression in these trying times.

Work with me!
