Professional statement

Alexandra Friedman is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker who sees clients in DC, Maryland, and Virginia for remote teletherapy sessions. With her background in community mental health, Alexandra enjoys working with clients from all walks of life. She welcomes individuals who are struggling with anxiety, depression, relationship concerns, trauma, and personality disorders.

Alexandra’s approach to treatment is rooted in strengths-oriented, strengths-based modalities; she often uses Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) to help clients identify steps they can take to reduce stressors, communicate their needs more effectively, and self-regulate negative emotions as they arise. She also utilizes psycho-education to help clients regain a sense of control over their symptoms.

Alexandra understands that therapy can be difficult to fit into the fast-paced demands of everyday life, and is excited to empower clients with the option of connecting anywhere. She looks forward to working with you.
