About Dr. Alex, LMFT, PMH-C

Counseling for Women

We are so powerful as women, but sometimes the scar tissue that has formed due to our life experiences can keep us from realizing our potential. You may feel stuck in some area of your life, whether it’s in your relationships or in being able to initiate a healthy lifestyle, or achieving more work-life balance.
You want to live a life that is healthy, fulfilling, purpose-driven and meaningful, but you’re experiencing some barriers in achieving the life you truly want. Imagine what life would be like if you were free from feeling stuck, anxious and unfulfilled. Imagine how amazing it would be if you felt truly satisfied in your relationships, both personally and professionally.
How would your life shift if you woke up every day with the utmost confidence in yourself to handle any of life’s challenges? If you can imagine this for yourself, then you have come to the right place. I specialize in helping women claim the joy they deserve.

Counseling for Teens

Are you a parent who is concerned about your teen daughter? Do you feel that she is wrestling with an issue, and yet has difficulty talking to you about it? Do you want to make sure that she is okay and on the right track?
I hear you. It’s often hard for teens to express themselves freely to parents. If you think that she may benefit from having an outlet, then you’re probably right. My goal in my work with teens is to help them tackle whatever issue they are currently wrestling with, so that they can more confidently navigate all the ups and downs that accompany adolescence.

My Story

I have intentionally built a female-centered practice because I understand that as women we have a unique set of challenges that require unique support. I tailor my therapy to meet women’s specific and unique needs.

My passion for empowering women was instilled in me at a very young age, as I was raised by two very fierce, brazen women, my mother and maternal grandmother, who instilled in me the values of being a courageous and independent woman. Their avid belief in me carried me through periods in my life where I doubted myself and struggled with low self-worth. I was only able to pull myself out of that funk when I truly learned to believe in myself.

Women are powerful and when we believe in ourselves, we can change the trajectory of our lives. That is why I’m drawn to working with women. My passion and purpose is to help women thrive and lead lives they are truly proud of.

I help women who are dreaming of a better life, actually live it.

Fun Facts

I am a huge dog lover! I have a French Bulldog named Poppy who is the light of my life! She is such a sweet, loving girl and sometimes she makes her appearance in therapy sessions. (Please feel free to request a session with her!)

When I’m not working, I really enjoy spending time with family & friends. I am a big foodie and love to cook, and try the best restaurants around town.

Another big part of my life is working out and I am an avid fitness lover. I enjoy exercise because it keeps me healthy, but it is also a great outlet for stress.

Are you ready to claim your joy?
