Alexandra has an amazing ability to ask challenging and hard questions that get to the root of the problem. A great listener and clinician.

I cannot speak highly enough of Alexandra. She embodied compassion; listening to me when I needed to talk and comforting me when I needed it. But, more than anything, she guided me and walked with me as I took practical steps in healing and starting over again. I always left feeling, both deeply cared for, and inspired and equipped to be better than I was before! More...

With insurance and therapy sessions, it can be tricky knowing where the overlap is in coverage. Not only does Alex respond quickly, but she handled the process of contacting insurance herself, (which took a huge hesitation out of the process). I'm lucky to have found this practice. More...

Alex has been a huge help to me as I navigate life. She is a great listener and more importantly, she wants to see me succeed and be the best that I can be. She does a wonderful job of balancing when to challenge me and when to show compassion and kindness. I cannot recommend her counseling services enough and have felt that my own personal counseling experiences have been worth far more then the money I've invested. More...

Q&A

We love that we get to partner with people around issues that are incredibly real. Safe spaces are unfortunately hard to come by- we value creating and holding that space for people to take an honest look at their life and experiences and then move continue moving forward.

I love the collaboration that we have at Optimum Joy! We are a team that enjoys working and growing together. I believe that because we are connected as a staff, we better serve the clients who come to us with their pain. Often providers work in solo practice. Not here! We are together for the sake of people.

While our therapists are deeply trained across a variety of techniques and theoretical orientations, each one chooses to specialize in a specific populations. This ensures you're getting the right therapist for you area of need! Also, each individual is unique. We work with you to create a plan and space that is shaped by your life.
