My Approach to Helping
Hello there! I am Nathaniel Alexander, a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC), Licensed Substance Abuse Treatment Practitioner (LSATP), and a Certified Substance Abuse Counselor (CSAC) for the state of Virginia, and I am here to help you become a better version of yourself without the need for substances. I believe in the 3 C’s: Choice, Common Sense, and Consequences. If a person uses sound common sense, their decision-making efforts improve and their life outcomes. I am always interested in learning new approaches to meeting client needs. With over 25 years of experience, I have worked in several outpatient substance use and mental health programs, including inpatient, residential and outpatient services; I am very excited to help those who desire change via virtual therapy. The hope is to break down walls and barriers for clients to get the care they need in the most accessible ways possible. I value adapting to clients changing needs. I desire to empower, encourage, and educate clients to recognize their strengths amidst their life situations to transition towards a sense of efficacy and fulfillment.
