I specialize in working with queer women and transgender and non-binary folks, with a focus on sexuality, gender, intimacy, relationships, and identity.
As a therapist, I create a warm, compassionate space for clients who want to discover and connect with their most authentic, grounded selves. Whether you are seeking to uncover a more authentic, grounded sense of self; explore new or evolving aspects of your gender or sexual identity; foster a deeper sense of embodiment; strengthen your skills for navigating boundaries or communication; or otherwise improve your relationship with self and others, I will walk alongside you as a non-judgmental, empowering ally in your process of growth, healing, and self-exploration.

During my career, I have worked with both individual and group settings, including adults with people living with HIV, veterans, incarcerated people and transgender /gender variant individuals. These populations included people with depression, bi-polar disorder, personality disorders, anxiety, PTSD and depression. I co-facilitated a group for trans youth and co-coordinated it for 6 years. As a proud bisexual, trans man, I love to work with my LGBT communities. I celebrate kinky and poly people. I strive to be an imperfect ally to non-binary trans people and people of color. I take private pay/in person through findingnormalstl.com

Many teens and adults exploring their gender feel uncertain or alone. It might feel like those around you don’t (or won’t) get it, or you may be afraid to talk to them about it. You may still be learning who you are, and how to love yourself. I’ve been through this process personally, and I get it. There’s a lot going on, and a lot to understand. If you’re at this kind of important moment in your life, I’m here to be an accepting person to guide you through this time.

Choosing to live authentically is an act of courage. Life offers many opportunities to hide our true selves, sometimes even from oneself, often resulting in living far below our capacity. Taking steps to heal, recover, survive, or take life to the next level can be challenging on our own. We’ll work together to understand what you want in your life, what’s getting in the way, and how you can create opportunities to have more of what you want, empowering you to live courageously and authentically. I love working with many different concerns including anxiety, depression, sexuality, gender, parenting, and more.

Hi! I am Alexandra "Alex" S. Ross, founder of Mosaic Mental Healthcare, and a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Missouri. Rather than narrowing my focus to one or two specialties, 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 about mental health and coping that can result in lasting change and healing.

Do you struggle to let go and live in the moment? How about unsure of who you are? Are you new to this whole counseling/mental health experience? If so, make now the time you invest in yourself. We all have many roles in life, and it can be challenging to navigate our different identities and expectations. I hope to help clients feel more comfortable with themselves and provide a safe environment to discuss life stressors.

As we move through our life there are struggles, obstacles, transitions and adjustments. Some of these are from childhood or adolescence and some are happening today. How do we show up in our life in a genuine way? How do we move forward? Starting the process to healing can be a vulnerable place. Allowing someone to walk with you can be the first step.

Relationships are central to our core being. Our pain, agony, and joy is embedded in our relationships. Whether it is the lack of support from our parents or our partners, unresolved trauma or PTSD, persistent anxiety or depression, or the desire to live more authentically with those closest to us, embarking on a path toward healing is a courageous first step. As you begin on this path, you will learn to communicate more authentically, feel more centered, and develop multiple ways of dealing with life’s challenges.

My goal is to assist people in working towards fulfilling their fullest potential, healing damaged selves and trauma, and regaining a new perspective on life. Early on in our relationship we will decide the goals for therapy and continue to revisit as to whether those goals have been met. I want our time together to be a positive experience for you, and one in which you feel comfortable returning to. But know that counseling is not for everyone, and not everyone benefits from it. Know that counseling is not a band aid, but a potential means of helping you achieve your best self.

As a parent, nothing is more painful than watching your child/teen suffer. You'd give anything to take away their pain. Recently, you've noticed some red flags. Your child's been more disconnected, anxious, and depressed. They've been more withdrawn from friends and family. You've tried everything to get through to them but nothing has worked. Your worried they might be considering self-harming behaviors. Something has to change. As school approaches, you want to ensure they are prepared. I'm here to help your child reduce their symptoms, improve their mood, connect with friends/family and thrive in school!

I began my career providing counseling services in a treatment center and have continued to specialize in substance use issues. Substance abuse, dependence, and addiction are confusing to all that suffer from this disease and their families. I have learned over many years that no one is immune to mental health stress, trauma, OR addiction. Most can find recovery and wellness. Expert couples counseling requires expert training. The Gottman Method is taught in three levels and I completed all three in 2017. My intensive couples approach is successful in improving communication and usually provides results in a reasonable time frame.

What type of Columbia 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 or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Columbia?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering 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.
