Great to meet you!

Good day, My name is Michael Alexander and I am a licensed clinical social worker with over 18 years of experience, who has worked in a variety of settings , with a focus on relationships and families. I am an African American man who believes in providing safety and comfort for all. I consider myself an ally for the LGBTQI community and believe in taking a non-traditional and dynamic approach to therapy. I am here to support and assist in a non-judgmental and loving way for my clients.

A bit about my approach to therapy

Dynamic, nonjudgmental, safe, nurturing, welcoming

What you can expect from our first session
