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.

Many are calling this an unprecedented time -- quarantined in our homes, fearful of the well-being of our families and loved ones and facing changes and circumstances we may have never imagined possible. If you are feeling disoriented, unsteady and in shock, you are not alone. As we grapple with the spread of illness in our communities, it is a time of both personal and collective upheaval, a time that may "shake us at our roots" and pierce our hearts, but also deepen our humanity and resilience. As your therapist, I will be a compassionate, respectful and trust-worthy guide, to help you navigate and bridge the months ahead.

I will interrupt you a lot, that is what meditation does. It interrupts our stories about ourselves and the world around us. I will also listen to you, deeply. That is another way meditation helps, we learn to listen to ourselves deeply. The word akrasia means 'out of control' and is used to describe the way we continue to do things that we know is not in our best interest, or don't do things that we know are in our best interest. Most people feel relief just to know there is word for it. The cause of akrasia is said to be a lack of information and meditation gives us access to the information we need to change.

You may excel at a task or class but not file a form to get credit for it, then think you are dumb for that? Do you sometimes blurt out something that offends someone and then feel embarrassed, having meant no harm at all? Do you make a plan for the day, get bored with it and do something more exciting instead? Have you considered the possibility that you have ADHD?

I take a holistic approach to therapy with children, teens and individual adults, looking deeply into the interplay between mind, body and spirit. I work collaboratively with clients to explore socio-cultural considerations, how we fit or don't fit in that context and our opportunities for growth. We'll sort through to find and examine unconscious patterns and get creative to generate alternatives that put you more in line with your goals and life purpose. If you don't know what those are, we'll figure that out too.

Therapy with me is a place of active change. I help people manage stress and reduce overwhelm, strengthen relationships, build resilience, and move from "stuckness" into growth. My patients come to me to shift thinking styles, improve communication, and increase productivity. I use evidence-based practices (such as CBT and mindfulness) to enhance self-awareness, build skills, and achieve targeted goals. We also explore core beliefs and behavior patterns to deepen self-understanding. With couples, my work is informed by the Gottman Method and Emotionally Focused Therapy. My office is located in a beautiful, peaceful marina setting.

I work well with people who as children, and now as adults, were impacted by a primary caregiver who was caught in a substance use cycle. Often there was a family culture of unpredictability, rigid rules, abuse, neglect, loss, humiliation, violation, and violence. My clients had to choose safety and inclusion over being themselves or being embodied, and want help addressing fear, shame, and critical self-concepts so that they can come back to themselves. They usually realize they have some grieving to do. They want to go beyond interpretation or assessment and yet still seek to understand the heart of things.

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.

You might be concerned about 'burdening' your loved ones with the depth and breadth of your grief. Maybe you are feeling extra irritable, or have trouble concentrating, or remembering things, or you have new body pains. The sadness may feel unbearable, but you still find moments of contentment and wonder if those will come more often again. You want to know what your grief trajectory will look like.
