Are you or someone you know struggling with addiction, anxiety, depression, or a significant life change? Has this impacted your relationships and ability to communicate with others and caused a wedge of misunderstanding for your loved ones?
If you are looking for a way to address your internal struggle with self-worth and find your path to a healthier lifestyle or looking for a way to build healthy communication and understanding with your loved ones, then I want to help. I see you.
I am Alexsandra, a Licensed Practicing Counselor (LPC) and a Certified Advanced Alcohol and Drug Counselor (CAADC). I earned my master’s degree at LaSalle University in Marriage and Family therapy and Addictions. Throughout my career, I’ve worked with individuals, adolescents, couples, and families to help them address relationships, communication, anxiety, depression, and the impact of addiction on everyone.
I am experienced working in family therapy outpatient programs with children, adults, and couples, outpatient drug and alcohol treatment settings with adults, and the public school system with children and their families. I also have supported individuals who experienced past and present addiction, anxiety, depression, mood disorders, interpersonal conflicts, life stressors, and change of life transitions.
My focus is helping others find a path to balance and enhancing their practical communication skills. I help clients find personal purpose and create a healthier lifestyle. I believe in creating an open environment to explore the self.
I pride myself in building and learning with everyone to foster a nurturing environment that allows exploring the innermost conflicts and impacts they may have on outside relationships. Reach out for an appointment, and let’s get your path to balance and improved communications started together.

Moving into adulthood brings its own set of challenges. You may feel pressure to have a “career” or find your life partner. You may be unsure of making these big life decisions and may feel lost because you no longer have school or other adults in your life telling you what you should choose.
The period of adolescence can be exciting, but also challenging for many teens. Difficulties with friends, school, anxiety, depression, cutting, and substance abuse are all common issues for this group. Due to a lack of life experience, teens may not know how to manage these problems which is why therapy can be especially helpful.
