My name is Alexander Warnow and I'm the founder of XY Counseling. At XY we work primarily with adults, teens, and couples helping them to live more fulfilling, connected lives. Often what brings someone to seek therapy is a chronic issue that has reached a crisis point: anger, depression, anxiety, self-worth, intimacy problems, communication issues and many more. Sometimes it is a recent change in one's life: infidelity, a move, or the end of a relationship. Taking the risk to ask for help is the first step on the road towards healing and growth. Our therapists include Jacob Donnelly, Stacey Klein and Walker Witte.

Depression, Anxiety, PTSD/Trauma, Codependency, Substance Abuse, or Alcoholism, causing stumbling blocks? If any of these are issues you would like help addressing, then let's talk. Perhaps PTSD, depression or anxiety are roadblocks in your life. Perhaps you are self medicating with substances to reduce symptoms of depression, anxiety, or trauma. Or perhaps you are struggling with codependent behaviors that stop you from growing. I use Meridian Tapping/EFT, CBT, Trauma Informed, and other techniques that can facilitate the changes you seek.

As a neuropsychologist, my primary focus is helping people recover as fully as possible from brain injuries such as strokes, traumatic brain injuries, brain cancer, and other neurological disorders. Treatment may include comprehensive neuropsychological evaluation; recommendations for specialized cognitive therapies such as speech therapy, occupational therapy or physical therapy; psychotherapies to address trauma, anxiety, grief and loss, coping skills, identity, and relationships; and education to help people and their families cope with the impact the brain injury has had on the family, advocate for needed treatments, and participate effectively in the rehabilitation process.

We are all born whole, in lovingkind perfection. But life produces obstacles that sidetrack our becoming ourselves. Obstacles take any forms: trauma in the body, inauthentic identities, existential fears, beliefs indoctrinated but in conflict with one's essential values, or anxiety that something is wrong with oneself. The result can be alienation, grief, substance use issues, depression, anxiety, difficulty connecting, or incapacity to speak or create from the heart. Reconnecting with ones body, the natural world, and with an unconditional community are the foundations re-emerging into the Self you've always been.
