What does a first session with you look like?

The first session, as with all Thriveworks therapists, will involve talking through your needs and goals for therapy — whether those involve managing depression, anxiety, relationship problems, or another mental health challenge. This will enable you to receive the very best care, as a personalized treatment plan will then be developed for subsequent sessions. Thriveworks helps people live happier, more fulfilling lives. Clients are guided and supported as they work through their unique mental health challenges – and, along the way, shown the life-changing power of therapy.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

I offer a variety of counseling approaches including CBT / Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Family Systems. This world is not to be dealt with alone. Let me come alongside you and we can tackle it together!

What should we know about your experiences and background?

Monica Alexander is a Licensed Professional Counselor with 14 years of experience in the mental health and substance use treatment fields. She has provided treatment in various settings and with a wide range of populations. She seeks to help people live more effective lives in order to thrive, not just survive, in life. She specializes in emotional dysregulation, depression disorders, anxiety disorders, substance use disorders, interpersonal conflict, grief, major life transitions, complex trauma, and mindfulness practices. Monica Alexander completed her Master of Arts in Professional Counseling (MA) at Liberty University in 2012. She is a wife and mother and an active member in her community and church. These roles coupled with clinical training and experience allow her to have an effective approach to problem-solving with modalities such as dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), cognitive behavioral therapy, substance use treatment modalities (matrix, seeking safety, living in balance), and motivational interviewing. Monica is ready! She believes you can do hard things. She wants you to become unstuck and free. Monica is confident that she will be able to provide effective treatment and straight answers, and that she will know the difference between when a client needs information versus affirmation to cope with challenges.
