Hi! I am Alexandra "Alex" S. Ross, founder of Mosaic Mental Healthcare, and a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Missouri with over 10 years of professional experience. I take an integrative approach to therapy, pulling from a variety of science-based theories and techniques about how people can change, experience relief from suffering, and improve their lives. My background as a mental health research scientist and a professor has helped me develop the ability to teach others things about mental health and coping that can drastically improve their lives.

Feelings and emotions, ugh. They can make or break our day sometimes. It’s ok, let’s talk about it. Life is hard, but you do not have to do it alone. Everyday burdens can feel unbearable or too hard to manage on your own. It takes alot of courage to take the first step and ask for help. You are searching for a therapist because you know something has to change, you want to feel better, you need to overcome things in your life that have held you back. There is no better time than today to make yourself a priority, grow, and become your best self. My goal is to meet you wherever you are and help you achieve the life you want.

My process is one that enhances each person's potential and honors everyone's unique path. I believe it is important to embrace each other's differences, and that we all have inside of us the capacity to feel loved and happy. Sometimes we need help to get there. We all want to be validated and to give and feel love. Changes in your family, friendships or community can challenge your skills. Healthy relationships require negotiation and new skills. I would like to help you navigate those challenges and improve your interactions so you can feel more whole. Evidence based practice and are utilized to develop the best plan for you.

I work with adults going through difficult times, who may be experiencing anxiety, depression, or the effects of past trauma. Many of my clients feel disconnected - from themselves, family and friends, and from the parts of life that make it meaningful and joyful. When we restore these connections, we find that improvements in other areas are soon to follow.

A trusting relationship can often be the first step toward healing. Within my practice I use a holistic, mind-body approach including Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) to alleviate the effects of trauma in both children and adults. Trauma comes in all shapes and sizes, and tends to plague us all to varying degrees, at one time or another, whether it's the Big-T Trauma of an automobile accident or the loss of a loved one; or the smaller-t trauma a child experiences when encountering emotions that he or she can't yet put into words.

My practice at Reclaim is dedicated to women suffering the damaging impact of relational abuse, betrayal trauma, or sexual coercion. This trauma can occur as a result of a partners' addiction to pornography, substances, or other compulsive behaviors. Covert emotional abuse is a 'hidden epidemic' today that often goes unnoticed or disregarded by family, friends, church, and counselors. We also work with women who have PTSD due to family-of-origin/attachment issues or other traumatic life events. We offer safe connection and a pathway to healing.

Dissociative Disorders (DID) Therapists

How does therapy for dissociative disorders work?

Dissociation may be triggered by stress or other upsetting circumstances, and therapy can address the traumatic events at the core of an individual’s dissociation. Understanding why a person may dissociate can help the therapist and the individual come up with alternative methods of coping. A person with a dissociative disorder may get stuck on negative thinking, for example, and treatment like cognitive behavioral therapy is a gold standard for breaking such thinking. And dialectical behavior therapy, for example, can help a person manage their anguish through better emotion regulation.

Which therapies are best for dissociative disorders?

Specific approaches used by professionals include cognitive behavioral, dialectical behavior, psychodynamic, schema therapies, among others. Cognitive behavioral and dialectical behavior therapies are two widely used therapies that can help individuals with painful memories and past traumas. These therapies work to integrate an individual's different identities into one person.

Are there specific medications for dissociation?

There are no specific medications prescribed for dissociative disorders. However, psychosis, depression, anxiety, and/or panic often co-occur in dissociative disorders. A psychiatrist may prescribe medications for any accompanying symptom—which may include antipsychotics like aripiprazole, antidepressants like selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors, or anti-anxiety drugs like benzodiazepines.

How often and how long are therapy sessions?

Like any type of therapy, sessions depend on the individual. Patients may see improvement within 15 to 20 sessions, at an average of 50 minutes per session, others may opt for 20 to 30 sessions over, perhaps, a six-month period. There are still other patients, especially those who have co-occurring conditions like depression and anxiety, who may need to continue sessions for up to 12 to 18 months.
