About Alexandra “Lexie” Power
I work hard to create an environment that fosters cozy, safe feelings, as well as providing a safe, non-judgmental place where we can tackle the weird, hard, and stressful parts of life together. I like to think of therapy as a map. Together, we will create a map legend, find your compass, and, as your therapy guide, we’ll get out of the woods together. Like Russell in the Disney movie Up! says, “The wilderness must be explored!”
I come to Elite DNA with 8+ years of experience in the mental health field, and I have a lot of experience working with all ages (3-92, to be exact!) Additionally, I’ve worked with those experiencing crisis, severe/persistent mental illness, mood disorders, personality disorders, and more. I love working with all kinds of people, and I am always ready to help. I’m working on a certification in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy to better serve my patients and stay up-to-date with best practices. I plan to continue to undergo further trainings and acquire additional certifications to keep my sessions fun, helpful, and evidence-based.
I use numerous therapy styles such as DBT, CBT, solution-focused, motivational interviewing, and more. However, I tailor my approach to every individual to meet their unique needs. In my sessions, I include humor, empathy, and non-judgmental understanding. I like to play games and, despite some heaviness in our sessions, I do believe laughter is the best medicine, which is why I try to end sessions on a positive note. I’m so incredibly thankful to have the opportunity to work with people and help them on their journeys. If you’re ready to get out of the woods, learn to validate your feelings, and work on the hard stuff, I’m here and ready to help!
