“I see therapy as a safe place for my clients to heal, learn and grow.”
In order to provide the highest possible standard of care for her clients, Alexandra does not accept new counselling referrals at this time. Please inquire about the psychological and psychoeducational assessment services.
I am a Registered Psychologist with a Master’s Degree in Educational Psychology. I have more that 10 years of experience in the mental health services and education field with adults, teens, and children. I was described as a caring and engaging professional, who makes clients feel comfortable and supported. Most of all, I enjoy helping people overcome challenges and realize their inner potential.
I am passionate about working with people who have experienced trauma, loss, divorce/separation, and recent changes in life. I am also well experienced in areas such as suicidal ideation and self-harm, anxiety, depression, and behavioural problems (aggressive, impulsive, oppositional and sexual behaviour problems).
I hold authorized practice endorsement and provide comprehensive psychological and psycho-educational assessments that help my clients discover their unique strengths, needs, and practical strategies for well-being and growth. It is very rewarding to offer my clients tools for optimizing their learning, work, and relationships.
Theoretical Approach: I am a humanistic therapist at the core. My approach combines person-centered, existential and classic gestalt therapies. I also use elements of dialectical behaviour (DBT) and trauma-focused cognitive-behavioural therapies (TF-CBT), mindfulness and solution-focused approaches, depending on my clients’ needs. I rely on academic research in psychology, education, and neuroscience to offer my clients everyday concrete tools for health and happiness.
