My Approach to Helping

Alexandra sets up clients for therapy success by utilizing a strengths-based and trauma-informed approach, incorporating mindfulness, person-centered, family systems, psychodynamic, and other therapies as appropriate for each individual. She works with clients who are navigating abuse, family conflict, separation, ambiguous loss, trauma, anxiety, and depression as well as helping them to explore life transitions, identity, relationships, and self-esteem concerns. She views each client as author of their own story and strives to understand the context from which they come. She is committed to journeying alongside clients as they seek healing.

Her prior therapeutic work involves assisting clients in overcoming both short and long-term mental and emotional issuesdisorders from conducting initial assessments to defining patient goals and building trusting relationships. She has supported adults and children experiencing challenges like trauma exposure, mental illness, and psychosocial stressors in both the non-profit sector and hospital settings.

She strives to empower children, youth, adults, and families to overcome the obstacles they face by helping them discover their personal strengths and capacities. While Alexandra challenges her clients to reach their potential, she also acknowledges that therapy is an active, involved, and effortful process. Therapy involves committed participation on the part of the therapist and client. Just as in a physical workout, people must challenge their limits of strength, flexibility, and stamina to improve.

Alexandra earned her undergraduate degree in psychology at the University of Georgia, with other studies devoted to Human Development and Family Sciences. Soon after graduating from UGA, she attended Fordham University’s Graduate School of Education where she completed the Mental Health Counseling program that earned her a Master’s of Science in Education.
