Professional statement

Alexa Golding is a Marriage and family therapist in Los Angeles. She specializes in helping adults and couples overcome anxiety and unhealthy patterns in their relationships, learn to regulate emotions to build confidence and trust.

Alexa is trained in evidence based practices such as Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). Clients learn tools to become their own therapist outside of sessions by learning how to access underlying fears, change their perspective and replace negative thoughts with constructive alternatives. Alexa believes that many of our past experiences have shaped our self-perceptions and the ways we relate to others. By gaining an understanding of the parts that no longer serve you, you will discover your authentic truth. In session, Alexa focuses on grounding tools, guided imagery, non-violent communication, deep breathing exercises, and journaling. These practices support clients in developing deep awareness, increased self-esteem, inner trust, confidence in decision making, and improved communication in relationships.

Alexa's style is warm, compassionate, and non-judgmental. With her, therapy won't feel so intimidating.

Alexa completed her master’s degree in clinical psychology with a specialization in marital and family therapy, from The Chicago School of Professional Psychology. Throughout her career, Alexa has been committed to helping clients access appropriate clinical care in a variety of settings such as community mental health, schools, and private practice.


Message to clients

You’ve struggled with the belief for as long as you can remember that no matter what you do it won’t be good enough. You know the answer to a simple question, but double check anyway because you don’t trust in yourself enough to give the right answer. Tasks that other people seem to do easily cause you to panic, which only reinforces the belief that you are inadequate. You are so tired of questioning every move you make and feeling the need to hide your true self because you cant trust other people, fearing they may reject you, abandon you, or even judge you. You walk on eggshells around the people in your life, scared to say the wrong thing so you shut down and don’t speak up. But then you are not connecting with people how you desire. I want to help you get out of your own head so you can break free from these patterns that feel so binding. I know you want to feel connected, understood, empowered and in control of your life. This all starts with learning how to calm that voice inside that secretly hopes you fail. I can help you access your fears so you can feel more free and live authentically. By learning the skills to regulate and calm your own emotions, you can slow down when reacting and responding to others.
