Have you been feeling more on edge, sensitive, and stressed lately? From the outside it may look like you're holding it together but underneath it all you’re overwhelmed, exhausted, and you might even feel like you’re losing your mind sometimes. You know that you can’t keep this up and something’s got to change. Your stress and worry seems to be getting worse and it's starting to interfere with your day-to-day activities and your relationships. You just want to relax and feel more at peace, but you can’t help thinking about all of the “what if’s” and the worst case scenarios.

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.

I embrace an integrative model that focuses on your needs, working with you collaboratively as we uncover your path to healing, balance, and aliveness. I am an older therapist engaged in my second career. For much of my adult life, I was a humanities professor, which I see as informing my present vocation. Having struggled with the challenge of many life transitions -- endings and beginnings, sometimes imposed, sometimes chosen -- I feel passionate about helping you with yours. You can always expect to find with me a safe space that offers compassion, warmth, and openness. My practice is LGBT friendly.

Are you tired of feeling stuck and that nothing seems to change no matter what you do? Maybe you are feeling overwhelmed and anxious and it’s starting to affect your relationships and your work. Or maybe it’s because you’re in a relationship where you have the same fights over and over and nothing seems to get better. Unresolved hurt and resentment may be making you feel distant from your partner. You may long to be closer but feel unsure that things can change. Feeling disconnected or distant from others is painful and can leave us feeling alone, insecure and full of self-doubt.

"Whoever you are, no matter how lonely, the world offers itself to your imagination...." In Wild Geese, Mary Oliver does not promise salvation, but points to the okay-ness of your being, to the importance of your inner world. How do you, in your imagination, relate to the world? You can find peace inside yourself. I believe therapy is about wholeness-it's not about rejecting who you already are, but about including all aspects of yourself. With compassion and honesty, let's explore the full you so that you may find your inner peace.

Choosing a therapist can be intimidating, especially for people of color. We might find ourselves wondering if our therapist will "get" what it's like to be us. I believe each person, couple, and family brings with them a set of unique experiences, values, and goals, often influenced by various cultural factors. Perhaps you are an individual looking for a safe space to explore your identity, including race, ethnicity, and gender. Maybe you are in a cross-cultural relationship and want help navigating tricky topics productively. It could be your family is in conflict around generational differences and opposing values.
