When we feel overwhelmed, depressed, or stagnant it can be difficult to reach out. When we feel lost in our relationships, our careers, or question our purpose in life, we may not feel satisfied or content. If we think our loved ones don't understand us, or we’re afraid to open up to them, we may become isolated and lonely. If we catch ourselves in addictive cycles or patterns, we feel defeated because nothing we’ve tried seems to be working. Maybe we battle with anxiety and depression; unable to get out of bed. If only we could learn a different way. If this resonates with you, there is a way through.
Healing encompasses balancing mind, body and spirit. I blend evidenced-based therapies with mindfulness, creative expression, holistic practices and writing exercises. I work with adults, college students and adolescents struggling with self-esteem, life transitions, trauma, spirituality, and recovery from mental illness, addictions and past experiences.
When we work together, I hold a space for you to open up and feel empowered. No two people are alike, so we will co-create a wellness plan to meet your specific needs, and through our work together, you will rediscover the light within you. Free of judgement, full of love.

Alexandra has been exceptional. She remembers my concerns and "homework" and always provides resources.

The first few sessions we’ve had so far have been very uplifting and detailed. I like the assignments and techniques she’s shown me. I feel better already just talking to someone who listens

I have been through a few therapists on this site and she has worked with me more closely than the others! She has helped me so much already. Thank you.

Alex is wonderful and helps me understand that I had no control over a lot that happened to me. She encourages me to write about anything and everything. She is kind and talks softly. She listens to what I say and responds with insight that I didn't see before. When I send her journal entry's, she responds and you can tell she read them. It's very affirming when you know she truly heard what you said, and read what you wrote. Alex is warm like the sun and can bring a smile to your face. She even has you do little activities to search yourself so you can even better understand yourself. She asks if you want to share the information and you share if and only what you want,
