Hello and Welcome, I’m Alex! I'm thrilled that you've decided to take a brave and meaningful step towards enhancing your wellbeing and embracing personal growth. As a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and National Certified Counselor (NCC), holding a Master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling, I'm deeply honored to support and guide you on this transformative journey. Your courage in seeking change is admirable, and I am here to facilitate your path towards healing and self-discovery. I have immediate in-network availability (BCBS, Aetna, Cigna) and I am accepting new clients. Private pay option available.
I specialize in supporting Black women and minority groups, focusing on intersectionality and identity in mental health. Our therapy journey is a warm, evidence-based collaboration between you and me, blending Person-Centered, CBT, and Solution-Focused approaches to nurture growth in a culturally competent space.
In our sessions, you'll find a warm, safe space to truly be yourself and navigate life's challenges. I empathize with the mix of uncertainty and freedom on this journey and am here to support you at every step. Together, we'll do meaningful work that empowers you to achieve your goals and enrich your life. When you’re ready, reach out to begin your journey.
