– Mary Oliver
What I want in my life is to be willing to be dazzled…To cast aside the weight of the facts and maybe even float a little above this difficult world.
I set goals with my clients and reach them, act as a believer when they cannot or will not believe in themselves, and provide structured out-of-session assignments to achieve solid, long-lasting, and generalizable results.

I completed my undergraduate and graduate studies in the Philadelphia region. I had the privilege of training at the Beck Institute in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, a modality that is evidenced-based for the treatment of depressive and anxiety disorders, as well as, anger issues, chronic pain, poor body image, low self-esteem, troubled sleep, managing relationship stress, coping with physical illness and more. I utilize other modalities, such as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Image Rehearsal Therapy, Family Based Therapy, Parent-Child Interaction Therapy, and others, depending on the desires of each client.
"...I feel very empowered after my sessions with Alex..."
"Alex is very understanding, reliable and non-judgmental. She never pressures you into doing anything or talking about anything that you're not comfortable with. Rather than tell you what to do to get better, she draws the solutions out of you to help you reach your goals. I feel very empowered after my sessions with her."

Alexandra is wonderful. I feel like she truly understands me and her advice is very constructive and useful for getting through tough times. Her words of support have meant the world to me.
"... Alex has really helped me view things in different perspectives..."
Alex has been extremely helpful. Great listener, responds quickly, and has really helped me view things in different perspectives. Terrific therapist!
