  • New York, Licensed Mental Health Counselor, 012743


Fordham University

Alexandra earned a M.S.E. (Master of Science in Education) in Mental Health Counseling from Fordham University. This program has a practitioner-scientist orientation and includes a strong multicultural and social justice counseling emphasis. During her time at Fordham University, Alexandra was a Psychology Research Assistant under the supervision of Dr. Fran Blumberg. When working with Dr. Fran Blumberg, Alexandra assisted in research concerning the development of children's attention and problem solving skills in the context of informal and formal digital learning settings. In addition to research, Alexandra worked as an active member of Student Association for Mental Health Counseling (SAM) to offer assistance to the students, as well as be a bridge between the students and the faculty. Alexandra acted as Chair of Clinical Internship Process and worked closely with her graduate program’s internship coordinators to improve the internship search process and plan related events.

Work History

Before private practice, Alexandra worked closely with the child welfare system to ensure the welfare and well-being of infants, children, teens, and families. Alexandra worked in close association with this system in both hospital settings and in home settings. While working in a hospital setting, Alexandra received training through the GABI (Group Attached-Based Intervention) program in which she learned how to facilitate and promote healthy attachment between child and parent. In this setting, she worked with client’s primarily facing difficulties with housing instability, mental illness, domestic violence, and childhood trauma. Through Brooklyn Community Services (BCS), Alexandra provided in-home mental health therapy services. While at BCS, Alexandra conducted comprehensive family therapy to help families with marriage or partnership conflicts, conflicts between other family members, children’s social-emotional challenges, or issues at school. Often families were copying with trauma, illness, loss, family changes, or transitions, and disconnection. Alexandra worked with families to set clear goals for change and embrace their uniqueness so they can draw from their strengths and abilities. In family meetings, individuals experience real change rather than just talking about it. Upon transitioning to private practice, Alexandra identified her passion for neurodiversity and has developed specialization in neurodevelopmental disorders. Alexandra has gained expertise in neurodevelopment disorders through participation in countless trainings, self-study, and consultation groups. Alexandra is devoted to continuing her education in learning interventions to manage client difficulties in organization / planning, relationships, concentration, and emotional regulation.
