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.

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.

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.

Relationships are as important to us as food and water. They can strengthen us, like a vitamin, or weaken us, like the flu. You are only as good in relationships as the relationships you have been in. As your therapist I can assist you in many ways. I can help you learn more about yourself, increase both self-compassion and compassion for others, and heal past trauma. Together, we can explore how to feel more connected to yourself, your values, and people you care about.

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.

I consider therapy a collaborative effort, guided by your needs. Through meaningful conversations I address your goals, your beliefs & their origins, and look at what's not working for you anymore. Therapy gives you the space you need to look at what is true to you by exploring your boundaries and willingness to go to uncomfortable places. I've been working in a private practice since 2008, first as an intern and now as a licensed clinician. I am attentive, warm, and compassionate. I take my work seriously & believe a little humor can aid in the healing process.
