Alyx believes that though the past led us to where and who we are today, it does not necessarily have to define us, nor does it have to predetermine our future. Alyx collaborates with her clients and helps them navigate the journey of life, empowering clients to be their best self. She specializes in personal growth, anxiety/depression, trauma, relationship challenges, and life transitions.
Alyx utilizes a trauma-informed and holistic approach across her therapy work. Alyx understands the connection between mind, body, and environmental and cultural factors. She joins with clients to help them create and reach their goals, and their quality of life beyond just the “normal functional level.” Alyx provides a caring, open, nonjudgmental, and even fun space for clients to facilitate growth and healing. She has worked in a variety of settings including community mental health, intensive outpatient programs, partial hospitalization programs, eating disorder programs, and private practice.
