About Me

I am a licensed clinical social worker with over 13 years of experience in the mental health field. I help my clients find their spark and passion back into their lives by helping them to develop tools that will lead to greater self-awareness, awareness of others, and mindfulness practices. After overcoming my own struggle with anxiety through yoga and mindfulness practices, I decided to pursue further training as a yoga teacher and incorporate holistic healing practices in therapy. Now, I teach clients how to practice yoga, breathing exercises, and mindfulness during our sessions together so they can live the life they were meant to without holding themselves back.

My ultimate goal is to assist people in finding their life purpose and living it fully!

Written by F.A. on Jun 22, 2022 after therapy with Alexandra for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, and parenting issues

Alexandra is very helpful and has a lot of expertise! She also has a great sense of humor which makes the sessions really enjoyable. I’m able to put her teachings into practice already and notice that my mental health is already so much better. I’m able to set boundaries and find that I don’t overthink as much with her guidance.

Coming into therapy for the first time with a ton of backstory and recent trauma, Alexandra provided an open ear and made me feel like someone was finally on my side. I look forward to working with her in the future- as she has a divergent mind that helps to get you focusing on what’s to come next.

Alexandra has helped me in ways I did not know I needed . I’ve come a long way in a short amount of time and although I did most of the work to get there I certainly have her to thank as well!
