Professional statement

Alexandra Hattick is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker located in Long Beach, CA. She works with young and middle-age adults who experience depression, anxiety, executive functioning challenges (i.e. ADHD), body image issues, conflicts with loved ones, or those who would like to learn more about themselves. Her style draws heavily from science-based skill building, which includes guidance through relaxation exercises, meditations, mindful breathing, and visualizations – all intended to support clients in increasing their resilience, self understanding, and ability to be with difficult emotions.

Alexandra is a UCLA-trained mindfulness facilitator and pulls from the work of Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT), Cognitive Behavioral therapy (CBT), Mindful Self Compassion (MSC), and inner child work to support her clients in cultivating a more focused, easeful, and resilient future. Much of Alexandra’s time with clients brings attention to the connection between the mind and the body as well as what heals both. She also brings education into sessions by teaching clients about evidence-based research in psychology.

Alexandra earned her Master’s degree in Social Work from California State University, Long Beach. With a dedication to compassion and a light, humorous personality, Alexandra supports her clients as they reach a greater understanding of what happiness and fulfillment mean to them and how they can start to lead lives oriented towards both.


Message to clients

Doesn’t it tend to feel so much easier to offer love, compassion, and care to others than it does to yourself? Many clients I work with have a hard time having compassion for themselves and feel insecure in relationships. They often find themselves feeling either not enough, alone, and anxious or resentful and angry. You might also be struggling with overwhelm and difficulty focusing. Whether related to ADHD or not, it can be really hard to get started, stay focused, or even identify what you want to do next.

My practice has some structure to it – I educate about why our brains and bodies do the things they do, where emotions come from, and how we can respond to them in more effective and supportive ways. In my practice, self-compassion and acceptance aren’t ways to ignore our patterns, but ways to build a healthy platform to grow from. I find it helpful to assign homework (usually journaling or skill practice) to aid clients in their growth and incorporate gentle directness and humor in my style along the way. Often the clients I meet with are interested in building a self care practice into their lives to support their growth and self-exploration.

My philosophy on therapy is that we’re already whole – we just need some help uncovering it. My hope is that in therapy, you can explore ways to build your inner resource toolbox, get in touch with what’s going on under the surface, and heal.
