Professional statement

We all deserve to feel seen, heard, and respected. To show up who you are, and how you are. Alex's goal as your therapist is to help you thrive, not just survive. Together, you'll co-create a safe therapeutic experience to reflect on how internal narratives and patterns are shaped by systemic, historical, political, or familial stories. She can help you navigate past traumas, tackle current life stressors, or move through major life experiences such as conflict, career/ school/ family transitions, and grief. Together, you will explore how interpersonal and structural based trauma manifests in your bodies and pathways to metabolize those experiences in your nervous systems, reconnect with your humanity, find balance and joy.

Alex uses a dynamic approach to therapy including trauma informed somatic modalities that weaves together ancestral healing practices [cooking, gardening, art, storytelling, connecting with nature, etc.] with the latest trauma informed techniques such as psychoeducation, mindfulness, deep breathing, and talk therapy.Her approach is informed by her personal and professional experiences working on criminal legal system reform with formerly incarcerated people, system-impacted families, frontline staff, and military veterans. She came to this work with a commitment to social justice after reflecting on her own experiences overcoming dyslexia and personal experiences with the justice system.

Therapist's note

A Good Place Therapy providers are out-of-network for all insurance carriers except Lyra Health; some providers are also in-network with NYU student health insurance (CHP).

Prospective clients also have the option of seeing one of the many excellent LMSWs who take NYU CHP insurance; they also offer fees starting at $100/session if clients meet income eligibility.

Clinicians will file out-of-network benefits directly on behalf of clients, so that clients only need to pay the deductible or the copay up front. Many people have excellent OON benefits and after their deductibles are met, they pay only 20-50% of the fee. A Good Place also commonly reduces what clients pay until they reach their deductible.
