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!

Alexandra has been great to talk with. She was there to listen and offer advice for a decision I was struggling with and gave me some insight into my daughter who was struggling with just being a teenager in middle school in today's world.

I have loved working with Alexandra! She is so supportive and attentive and really allows me to guide each session; oftentimes,after our sessions,she gives me supplemental worksheets and articles to work on and read so I continue working on myself outside of therapy which has been so wonderful in helping me through this journey.

Alexandra is my first therapist, and I've felt extremely comfortable talking to her. She is always punctual and helpful, and she has gotten me through a personal crises that I don't think I would've been able to manage otherwise. I highly recommend her!
