Hi! I'm Alexa and I cultivate safe spaces for individuals of all ages and backgrounds, helping to empower, equip, and encourage growth on their journey to well-being. 

Are you feeling like you're constantly juggling and struggling to get by with what you've got? Do you ever feel like you're stuck in a loop, doing the same things over and over without getting anywhere? You are wishing for some solid support when things get tough and just need a place where you can let it all out without anyone judging you.  I get it.  You are feeling the pinch of not having enough, whether it's money, time, or energy. You are looking for a crew you can count on, someone who gets where you're coming from and to cheer you on. That's where I come in. I'm here to listen, help you figure things out, and make a plan for moving forward together.

I use different ways to help you feel better, making sure it fits what you need. I spend time finding good resources that work for your situation. I use proven methods like Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) to help you break free from negative thoughts. I also work with other therapists to give you extra support if you need it. Most importantly, I create a safe place where you can talk about tough things without feeling judged. Together, we'll work through your pain and help you grow and heal.

What does Alexa love about being a therapist?

What I love about being a therapist is witnessing the incredible transformations and breakthroughs in my clients' lives. Hearing their stories and empathizing with their experiences allows me to form deep and lasting connections with them. Each client's journey is unique, and I find immense fulfillment in being a part of their development and growth. It's truly rewarding to see the positive impact therapy can have on individuals as they navigate life's challenges and embrace their full potential.

How does Alexa describe herself as a therapist?

As a therapist, I see myself as warm and welcoming, creating a safe and inviting space for my clients to explore their thoughts and feelings. I pride myself on being adaptable, able to adjust my approach to meet the unique needs of each individual. My energy and enthusiasm for helping others propel our work forward, fostering a dynamic and engaging therapeutic environment. I am deeply invested in my clients' well-being, committed to supporting them on their journey towards growth and healing. With a solution-focused and person-centered approach, I strive to empower clients to discover their own strengths and solutions while providing compassionate guidance along the way.

What makes Alexa unique as a therapist?

What sets me apart as a therapist is my diverse background and experiences. With a military background and having served as a Sexual Assault Response Coordinator, I bring a unique perspective and understanding of the challenges individuals may face in these contexts. My background in sports and nutrition adds another dimension to my approach, allowing me to incorporate holistic wellness principles into our work together. Additionally, my experiences as a world traveler have exposed me to a wide range of cultures and perspectives, enriching my ability to connect with clients from diverse backgrounds. This blend of experiences enables me to offer a unique and comprehensive approach to therapy, tailored to each individual's needs and goals.

Education and Professional Background 

I studied at the United States Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs and earned a Bachelor of Science in Behavioral Science. After that, I completed a Master's in Counseling at Liberty University.

My professional background includes certifications and special training that make me a better therapist. I'm certified as a Department of Defense Volunteer Victim Advocate and have had special training as a Department of Defense Sexual Assault Coordinator. I'm also trained in Symbis Premarital Counseling, which helps me support couples getting ready for marriage. These certifications and trainings show how committed I am to giving thorough and specialized care to my clients. They help me handle many different issues and concerns in therapy.

Hobbies & Fun Facts

My husband and I love to travel and have explored more than 10 countries together, including Costa Rica, France, Iceland, Belize, England, and Japan. As Air Force officers for the past 7 years, we've been fortunate to experience diverse cultures while serving our country. Back home in Colorado, my family and I are passionate about outdoor activities like trail running, mountain biking, and stand-up paddleboarding. Despite my active lifestyle, I have a weakness for ice cream and can easily finish a pint on my own. I enjoy watching classic musicals with my dad, such as 'Singing in the Rain', 'The Music Man', and 'Oklahoma'. I graduated from the Air Force Academy in 2017, where I competed as a multi-event Track & Field athlete, specializing in the heptathlon. Despite living in a digital age, I have an old-fashioned soul and prefer writing letters over social media for communication. Recently, we welcomed a new member to our family—a delightful 8-week-old wirehaired pointing griffon puppy who has stolen our hearts. Lastly, my faith is fundamental in guiding me through all aspects of my life, both personally and professionally.

What are clients saying?

Clients have shared their thoughts on our sessions, expressing gratitude for the meaningful conversations we have where they feel they're making progress, not just venting. They've mentioned feeling genuinely listened to, which is very meaningful to me. Interestingly, clients continue to return even after significant life changes, showing how much they value our work together. One client has stayed dedicated to our sessions, even through job loss, highlighting the impact of our therapeutic relationship and the value they find in our work.
