Alex Skye Trahnstrom is a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker providing therapy to individuals in Rhode Island and Massachusetts. Many of Alex's clients have an interest in spirituality or spiritual practices & they identify as deep thinkers and want to learn more about themselves. Alex’s clients often begin therapy because they are feeling a sense of 'stuckness' or that something is getting in their way of living an authentic life, feeling empowered, being happy, or having meaningful relationships and experiences.
Alex invites her clients to explore themselves within the framework of ‘multiplicity of mind’. Alex works with her clients to get to know both the parts of themselves that are pulling them toward healing as well as the parts of themselves that are resistant, scared, worried, or hurting. Alex supports her clients in building a relationship with these aspects of themselves in order to release burdens and unwanted narratives, to allow more room for play and creativity, and to ultimately live a more balanced and aligned life.
Alex’s approach to therapy is soul-led and insight-oriented and is influenced by depth-psychology, esoteric & archetypal psychology, and Internal Family Systems (IFS). She uses these approaches to support her clients in building a relationship with themselves, creating meaningful change, healing past wounds and traumas, and strengthening their connections with others.
Alex’s goal is to not only help deepen her client's understanding of themselves but to support them in creating meaningful and long lasting change. In order to support her clients on their journey and help them accomplish these goals, she uses a combination of talk therapy as well as integrating mindfulness and experiential practices (such as expressive arts, guided imagery, and somatic awareness). Alex also enjoys integrating archetypes and symbolism from nature, tarot, and astrology.
