Healing, in its many forms, is often messy and demanding. But healing can set us free. As a counselor, Alexandra seeks to support, empower, and walk alongside clients in their search for wellness, growth, and freedom. During sessions, Alexandra will listen to your story, help you develop coping mechanisms, and encourage you to find meaning and exercise agency. She strives to continuously learn and grow in cultural competency, which is a vital component of trust-building and effective counseling. She is also committed to advocacy work outside of the office because she believes that our health as individuals is intertwined with the health of our communities.
