About Me

Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much."
- Helen Keller

Hi , my name is Alexandra Parker, and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker who is passionate about providing therapeutic services to couples of all races, backgrounds, and sexual orientations. I hold confidentiality in high regard and will always offer a safe place to share thoughts , feelings, values and emotions.
I have experience in relationship issues and have been employed and in various different modalities such as hospitals, private practice and managed care organizations. My therapeutic approach is centered around Cognitive Behavioral therapy and a strength based process. I believe in challenging the couples' thought process (Cognitive Behavioral technique) combined with empowering them. I will focus on couple dynamics, how to argue fairly, addressing each others needs, and compromise, which many couples struggle with. Hopefully, with my assistance, couples realize that they have the knowledge within themselves to achieve goals to improve their relationship. I just provide the tools necessary for optimum levels of success.

I make it a priority to actively listen and provide empathy, emotional support, and validation of feelings for all of my clients. I am honored that you chose to get assistance for your mental well-being and I am excited to assist.

Reviews

Written by M.A. on Jan 12, 2021 after counseling with Alexandra for 2 weeks on issues concerning relationship

I've only seen Alexandra with my husband twice, but its been really amazing so far. in just two sessions I feel like years of problems have already changed dramatically and we are learning how to have boundaries and communicate better. I've never done couples counseling and always feared it, but I do not anymore.
