Professional statement

Alexa Golding is a Marriage and family therapist in Los Angeles. She works with adults/couples who seek therapy to address anxiety, OCD, perfectionism, ADHD, depression, relational trauma, and life transitions. Alexa will empower her clients to take responsibility in making decisions that work best for them.

Alexa is trained in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), psychodynamic therapy, and attachment theory. Working from a psychodynamic approach, clients can learn to identify patterns in emotions, thoughts, and beliefs, and form a positive sense of self. 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. Alexa is also trained and certified in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), where clients can learn tools to become their own therapist outside of sessions. She is committed to helping clients access underlying fears, so clients can learn ways to change their perspective and uncover who they are meant to be. 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 compassionate, non-judgmental, interactive and insight oriented. She will work to learn your story so she can collaborate with you on meeting your goals.

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

Has it been difficult to get your needs met in relationships? Maybe the idea of communicating your needs to others gives you such fear and anxiety you feel paralyzed. It can be so hard to advocate for ourselves when we need to speak up, and a lot of times this may be tied to deeper, unhealthy core beliefs that I can help you to unravel. You are not alone in this fear, but by taking this step to dig deeper, you are on track toward building self-love, self-respect, and strengthening your relationships. I will help you to align with your with authentic fulfillment, desire, and purpose in significant areas of your life. As children, we may endure or witness unhealthy dynamics within our family system that as adults we must address, face and challenge. We carry many of these beliefs and behaviors into our adult relationships and occupation, and it is important to learn what no longer serves us, so we can experience healthier, intimate connections, and a secure sense of self. While I am here to guide and support you, I believe it is most significant to empower you to recognize the beliefs that may hold you back so you can strengthen your intuition, build inner trust, and confidence.
