Do you feel disconnected from yourself and others around you? Do you feel unsure how to express your true self or live the life you want? As a Gender, Sex, and Relationship Diversity knowledgable therapist, I offer a supportive environment to address issues in life that may be holding you back. Sometimes it is your own beliefs about yourself or your true potential that is your greatest barrier. Therapy can help uncover the barriers that are in the way and learn skills and techniques for how to work with yourself and collaborate with life so that you feel like you are living as opposed to just surviving.

I would like to help you clarify your goals, identify obstacles to reaching those goals, and then work together collaboratively to determine the best method of navigating your life and relationships to achieve personal fulfillment. I believe that attitude and perception significantly impact how individuals deal with pain and conflict, and that exploring problematic areas from different perspectives in a safe, nonjudgmental environment can transform and heal.

I love helping people gain insight into themselves, improve self esteem, heal from past traumas, identify and over come, "stuck points," improve boundaries, and learn coping skills to reduce anxiety and stress. I also have experience with, and enjoying working with the LGBTQIA+, POC, immigrants, and a-domiciled individuals. I prefer to work with individual adults.

OOO 6/30-8/1. Do you feel like you keep making the same mistakes in your dating relationships? Do you find that when you finally get the committed relationship you thought you wanted, you feel insecure in ways you didn't expect? Everything we feel and react to is sparked by our interpersonal interactions. When those interactions cause self-defeating reactions, you can feel insecure, lonely, and defeated. I want to help you change your patterns. I help people calm the chaos in their mind and their life. You will learn that you can manage your life (relationships, family, career) with strength and confidence.

I believe that the goal of "happiness" we are all striving for, is not that of elation, but inner peace. Without an understanding of this subtle difference, many of us can find ourselves on a slightly different path than we have intended. Much of my work focuses on helping my clients find acceptance in themselves in order to listen to their own voices and create a life that is fulfilling. I believe that each of my clients are the experts in their own lives. In that way, our sessions become a joint process--rather than an "expert/patient" experience.

Hi there! I'm Alex. I'm a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor and also a parent, partner, cook, and crafter. Are you often juggling lots of different roles, thoughts, expectations, and feelings in a day or even a moment? Is it hard to stay present and not spin in the "I shoulds"? You're not alone - this is being human. I am drawn to working with people who are going through any kind of change, loss or transition within themselves or externally. I believe a relationship with a therapist creates the kind of human connection that allows you to feel seen and heard in your experience. I would feel honored to be that person for you.

What type of San Diego mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in San Diego?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
