Welcome!

                       

Hello! My name is Alexandria. I am currently a LMSW under supervision to become a LCSW. I have been providing therapy for children, adolescents and adults for three years. I specialize in helping children and teens navigate through their feelings when it comes to school and home life, particularly bullying, self-esteem, divorce, and depression. I also specialize in anxiety and stress management. I value trust and acceptance and this is truly a safe space to help process your feelings and emotions.
I am highly client focused and believe the therapeutic relationship is quite sacred and a vital part of your healing. 

WORK EXPERIENCE

Over the years I have worked for Child Placing Agencies, Department of Family Services, Hospice, Hospitals, and Outpatient Clinics. I have roughly seven years of experience working with all populations from newborns to geriatrics. While working in different setting with diverse populations, I had the opportunity to provide emotional and social support in various way to many families and instill hope in current situational stressors. 

EDUCATION AND TRAINING 

I received my Bachelor of Arts degree in Social Work from Prairie View A&M University and a Master’s in Arts in Social Work from University of Texas at Arlington with a concentration in Mental Health and Substance Abuse. 

 

ON A PERSONAL NOTE 

During my free time I enjoy working out, cooking, trying new recipes, traveling with friends, and spending time with my family.

 

WHAT IS A LMSW? 

In most cases, earning an MSW from a program accredited by the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE) is enough to qualify to apply to become an LMSW. Depending on your state, there may be a licensure exam that evaluates an applicant’s understanding of key social work principles, particularly in ethics and safety. Many social workers with an MSW or LMSW have careers in case management, working in settings such as child protection agencies or government organizations evaluating eligibility for public assistance. In addition, some people pursue an LMSW with an interest in working on policy reform or in social advocacy jobs. These social workers may find themselves working alongside people with advanced degrees in health policy or government, lending the unique perspective of a social worker.
