My name is Alexandra. I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in private practice in Santa Monica. I work with individuals and couples with a wide range of personal and relational struggles. These struggles often result in people feeling "stuck" and even "hopeless" that anything will ever change. However, it is my belief that if you are reading this page there is still a part of you that imagines there may be hope. I am here to tell you that there is!

I provide a safe and non-judgmental space for my clients to explore their experiences, allowing them to gain awareness and greater clarity about themselves. It is my belief that, through such awareness and clarity, clients will grow to understand the way in which they experience life and relationships, providing clients with greater agency to create change in their lives wherever it is desired. 

I am certified as a Couples and Sex Therapist and have training in InterAnalytic Couples and Sex Therapy, as well as Emotionally-Focused Therapy (EFT) for working with couples to strengthen communication and deepen intimacy and security.
