Great to meet you!

I opened Empowered by Alex in 2022 in an effort to provide excellent counseling services to teens, young adults, mothers, and families suffering from anxiety, depression, difficult life transitions, and trauma.

Since becoming a licensed therapist in 2019, I have seen the lack of mental health resources for individuals truly in need and want to help fill that gap.

I am trained in EMDR and use this as my primary treatment modality, along with MBCT, yoga, and aspects of DBT and IFS.

A bit about my approach to therapy

I specialize in treating trauma, recent or past. I believe that the past predicts our future. If you have not resolved and healed from trauma, you will continue to suffer. My approach is direct and organized so that you truly feel the effects of therapy and your personal progress.

What you can expect from our first session

I like to develop a plan and goals with my clients. Although I typically do not assign homework to clients, I like to provide education and tools that can be used outside of therapy to combat challenges that arise. My sessions will primarily be EMDR-centered and you will leave feeling that you are making progress to your specific goals.

Alex's style is
