Treatment Approach

Alex aims to provide Narrative counseling and evidence based practices in her work. Narrative therapy focuses on allowing clients to identify themes and meaning making within their life stories. Alex likes to incorporate techniques from other theories such as Solution Focused therapy, Gestalt therapy, and Cognitive Behavioral therapy when needed. She has training in Child-Centered Play therapy, Telehealth therapy, and is currently pursuing a certificate in Grief, Loss and Trauma. Alex hopes clients will feel empowered to redefine their narratives and make meaning of their experiences throughout the counseling journey.
