Hey there. My name is Alexandria (she/her). I help people repair relationships, set boundaries, and nurture a love of self. The way we do all these things is through storymaking. First, we will uncover what stories you tell about yourself. The elements of a new life story are all there, and there is a version that is empowering, liberating, and true. I believe that all humans are storytellers by nature, and I invite you to write a story that promotes the best of you.
I apply a relational lens to all my clients, whether you come as an individual, couple, or family. We will work to understand how your family of origin and cultural influences shape you, freeing you to choose how you show up in the world. My couples work takes this a step further; you and your partner or partners will learn to see the architecture of your own emotional influences and needs. With time and compassion, the doors of intimacy will reopen to one another. The goal is for you and your partner(s) to turn cues that say “get away from me” into “hold me closer”.
My approach is intuitive, grounded, and warm, inviting moments that challenge assumptions with true care and respect. I allow the spoken and unspoken cues in the room to guide the process. From years of teaching yoga, I have a deep regard for the connection between mind and body. I will often ask you to consider, can you be curious and nonjudgmental towards your body to create a healing mindset? This will support our larger work, as we practice awareness that every thought and emotion has a physical, embodied component.
I favor humanistic, collaborative, solutions-focused modalities such as Experiential and Narrative Theories. I’ve worked with populations who have survived sexual assault, seeing the unique needs of overlooked and interlinked demographics: survivors of childhood trauma, male survivors, and all people with layered identities and complex needs.
If you’ve read this far, and you’re ready to begin, I offer these final words as an invitation into our work together.
