Alex is a Licensed Professional Counselor who conducts individual therapy with adolescents and adults, as well as family and couples counseling. Alex has worked with a diverse population since beginning her career in 2010 and she has a wealth of experience treating individuals who have struggled with trauma, addiction, bereavement, relationship problems and career concerns. While helping those with anxiety and depression is her primary passion, Alex also views her ability to assist people in better managing their anger and cope with grief and loss as a strength. She has recently developed a specialization in supporting new parents and counseling those with postpartum depression and fertility challenges as well. Alex is also working towards a certification in EMDR, eye movement desensitization and reprocessing, as a treatment modality for those who have experienced trauma.
Alex tailors therapy to fit each individual client. In counseling sessions, she utilizes an eclectic approach focusing on collaborating with her clients to achieve goals that are behaviorally, emotionally and spiritually oriented.
Also, Fava, a trained therapy dog, is her partner in therapy. She is a highly trained cane corso, born in April of 2019, who primarily sleeps through therapy sessions, but when a client is agitated, she has been known to rest her giant head on his/her lap. If you are fearful of dogs, but would like to work with Alex, please contact the office and we can come up with a solution.
Collaboration in treatment is necessary when working with Alex and she will help you achieve a level of comfort, so you can advocate for yourself in therapy and in life.
