Alex (she/they) is a Clinical Psychologist who earned her doctorate in psychology from Eastern Kentucky University (Richmond, KY). Having a special interest working with the LGBTQ+ community, they are Safe Zone trained and have led processing and support groups within this community for over 5 years. Being part of this community herself, she strives to create an affirming environment for those she works with. Additionally, Alex is passionate about working with trauma survivors and women’s issues.
Alex’s therapeutic approach centralizes on meeting clients where they are at and working at their pace. They do this by promoting a trauma-informed environment that is person-centered and feminist-based. By doing so, their goal is to provide clients with choice, empowerment, and validation, while giving clients space to take the lead and advocate for their needs.
Alex enjoys incorporating situation-appropriate humor and creativity when possible. She has experience with expressive arts and finds this to be a great addition to counseling, especially when communication can be hard or a client is feeling stuck. They offer individual counseling and have a significant background in working with young adults. In addition to working with gender and sexuality concerns, trauma survivors, and women’s issues, she also has experience working with mood disorders, specifically anxiety disorders, attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder, life transitions and adjustment, relational concerns, suicidality, and self-harm. Alex believes that each client requires an approach tailored to their needs and strives to remain flexible and creative with these approaches. She is also available to conduct psychological assessments including personality assessment, intelligence and achievement testing, and differential diagnosis testing. Alex understands the vulnerability of reaching out to begin treatment and is ready to provide you with patience and persistence.
