Marriage and Family Therapist

Alexa is a couple and family therapist, who frequently works with individuals as well. She works with individuals and couples with sexual concerns, as well as premarital counseling. She offers extra support and guidance through challenging situations in life. Her hope is that by coming to therapy, you will start to feel better than you do right now. We cannot change difficult situations from the past, but together you can work to feel better in the future.
Alexa likes to provide a nonjudgemental space in which you can take an honest look at what is happening in your life and grow as you move forward. She does this by looking at underlying thoughts, feelings, and behavioral/relational patterns that have contributed to the development and maintenance of the issues you are experiencing right now.
She believes successful therapy takes transparency, commitment, personal accountability, and mutual respect. She will work to help you identify inherent strengths, heal past and present wounds, and generate change from within yourself. The coolest part of her job is that everyone brings unique life experiences, strengths, and challenges to the therapeutic process.
Alexa believes the process of gaining insight into a persons life cannot be rushed, so she uses short and long term techniques depending on the individual needs of her clients. Through an empathetic process, she guides therapeutic discussions in order for her clients to discover the underlying problems for themselves, so that they may expand and utilize their skills and strengths to live more meaningful and rewarding lives.
Alexa received her Masters in Couple & Family Therapy from the Adler School of Professional Psychology. Her undergraduate degree is from Indiana University, where she had a concentration in Gender Studies. She has completed specific training in Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFT) and Prepare and Enrich premarital counseling. She plans to obtain sex therapy certification from AASECT, the American Academy of Sexuality Educators, Counselors and Therapists, as sex therapy is a specific area of interest for her when working with individuals and couples.
