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 5 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, and person centered. 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!

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

Alexandra is not invasive but very supportive in my efforts to gain a healthier balance on life and my way of thinking. She does not humanize herself to the point where I have to worry over her own problems (an issue I had with a therapist i the past) She has so far helped me reroute my negative thoughts towards a more realistic and beneficial way of looking at life and how I feel in general.

Alexandra has been the best support for me through an extremely difficult time, she's always there when you need to talk and she gives amazing tips and information on how to deal with your issues. I couldn't have asked for a better therapist. :)

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.
