Hi there! I'm Alex. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Virginia with 6 years of counseling experience and over 10 years of experience in the mental health field. I have worked in many settings to include residential, acute hospitalization, in home, therapeutic day treatment, state prison, local jail, and state hospital. I have experience working with children, adolescents, adults, and seniors. I have worked with individuals on issues such as mood disorder, anxiety, stress, anger management, conflict resolution, family issues, trauma, gaps in communication, couple's therapy, and self-esteem.
I believe in putting the client in the driver's seat and being there to support them along the way. My approach is warm and friendly as we collaboratively work to resolve presenting problems and gain insight along the way. My clinical approaches include Client Centered Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy. I understand how hard it is to ask for help sometimes, and I admire the courage that it takes to do so. That being said, I take my client's needs seriously and look forward to working collaboratively toward positive growth and change.

I've only been working with Alex for a few weeks now, but I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to deal with issues similar to mine. Alex is knowledgeable, empathetic, and she possesses tools that have helped me immensely. I look forward to continue working with her. (Note: this review comes from someone who is very picky about her therapists.)
Alexandrea is absolutely amazing. Highly recommend her.
Although I only had a very little amount of time of knowing Alexandria Jackson, she was a wonderful and understanding counselor. She gave me good tips and ideas on how to cope and let me know it was ok to feel how I felt.. and that i wasn’t alone. She made me feel comfortable, she listened carefully to everything I shared with her and would repeat my words in a way for me to hear myself.. if that makes any sense. I found things and treatments that she suggested to me that are actually helping me. I just couldn’t continue with counseling because I can’t afford it.. but i do plan to come back if I feel the need to. I recommend alexandrea for anyone who just wants to be heard and receive great tips and advice to go through hard times with a positive approach.
