Hi there! My name is Alexandra, I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW), licensed in the state of CT, with a Master’s Degree in Social Work from Columbia University. I have over 7 years of experience working with adults, adolescents, and children in a variety of settings. Including specialized experience focused on working with survivors of domestic violence as well as Veteran and military populations. I currently offer individual therapy, focused on helping clients navigate feelings of anxiety, depression or overwhelm, challenging relationships, life transitions or other ongoing stressors, as well as working through traumatic experiences. I have a particular focus on helping people cope with the emotional and psychological effects of difficult or traumatic events. I am committed to providing compassionate and effective therapy, in a safe, supportive, and nonjudgemental space. My goal is to support my clients in developing greater self-understanding and growth, supporting change, and fostering healing. My approach to therapy is holistic, strengths-based, and trauma-informed; providing supportive talk therapy while drawing on various therapeutic modalities as appropriate. My approach centers around meeting clients where they are, utilizing a collaborative approach to identify areas of need and developing insight. We will take time to develop achievable goals for therapy and the future; together we will work toward building the skills and strategies to realize those goals. I work collaboratively with my clients to identify and further develop their strengths and resources; developing coping and problem-solving skills that will enable them to successfully navigate and manage their symptoms and live a full and meaningful life. If you are struggling with the effects of stress, depressed mood, anxiety, or trauma, or just want to be able to talk to someone in a supportive and nonjudgmental space - I encourage you to reach out for help, you do not have to face these challenges alone. Life is often full of an incredible mix of significant positives and profound challenges, often these challenges are filled with anxiety, overwhelm, or distress, that can at times, feel impossible to navigate. My goal is to help and support you while you learn to navigate these challenges and work toward healing, happiness, and growth. Please remember, as you are taking this step to connect with a therapist, while it may not have been the easiest of decisions to come to, the decision to seek help is a sign of profound strength, never one of weakness. You deserve to feel happy and well.

I place a high value on authenticity, empathy, and self-awareness, both for myself and my clients as individuals, but also as a critical part of the therapeutic process (I also take advantage of the healing power of laughter whenever possible!). I aim to normalize and validate my clients’ experiences without judgment, and above all, to provide the most basic of human needs: to feel seen and heard. Hi! My name is Stephanie (Stephanie or Stevie is fine) and I have been providing therapy in NJ exclusively via telehealth for about the last 4 years (prior to that, in person). If you have been struggling with symptoms of depression or anxiety, particularly if they are related to a traumatic experience, I would love the opportunity to work with you to reduce your mood- or anxiety-related symptoms, and to help you to experience a present that is not overshadowed or negatively impacted by situations and events from your past. I love working with women ages 20 to 30-something who are still in academia or just starting out in their careers, but also love working with women of any age. I frequently work with survivors of child sexual abuse, as well as those struggling with issues related to self-esteem/self-worth, but have treated clients with many different conditions, the most common of which are listed below. *My practice is focused primarily on treating adults who identify as female as well as being a welcoming space for members of the LGBTQIA+ community. I do not currently treat cisgender heterosexual males, children or adolescents.

I am a licensed clinical social worker and certified psychanalyst with certified CBT training as well and a Ph.D in an allied field. I had taught at UCLA, USC, and Antioch Universities and I was asked to try to give and develop a college program at the California Institution for Women, at the time, the only facility for female felons in the state. Shortly, I realized I needed clinical training and went back to school specializing in children and families. Later I moved to NYC to attend The Postgraduate Center for Mental Health, an affiliate of New York University. I did one training for adults (5 years) and 3 of the 4 years for the child and adolescent track. I have worked in clinics as well as private practice in both New York and CT. I hope I may be of service.
