Alexia Sanford

I am a compassionate and dedicated Mental Health Counselor with a focus in Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT) and Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT). I am committed to helping individuals navigate their journey towards emotional well-being. 

My goal is to create a safe and non-judgmental space where you can explore your thoughts, feelings, and experiences in a supportive environment. I have a passion for helping individuals by harnessing individual strengths to ensure a quality of care tailored to your unique needs and path through life. I have developed a deep understanding of the challenges that individuals face when it comes to their mental health. 

I firmly believe that seeking counseling is an act of strength, and I commend you for taking this important step towards self-discovery and healing. 

I specialize in a range of mental health issues including eating disorders, ADHD, career counseling, addiction, PICS, anxiety, stress, relationship issues, and other concerns. By utilizing evidence-based practices and therapeutic techniques, I tailor my approach to meet your unique needs. My approach is grounded in empathy, warmth, and respect for each individual's personal journey. 

Together, we will work collaboratively to identify the root causes of your struggles, develop coping strategies, and empower you to lead a more fulfilling life.

I understand that seeking help can be daunting, and I strive to create a comforting and confidential space where you feel heard, understood, and valued. My ultimate goal is to empower you to build healthy coping mechanisms, improve your relationships, and foster a sense of self-acceptance and personal growth. Whether you're facing a specific challenge or simply seeking personal growth, I am here to support you every step of the way. 

My role as a Mental Health Counselor is to provide guidance, validation, and practical tools, while fostering a trusting therapeutic relationship. Together, we will explore your strengths, map out a path forward, and celebrate your progress along the way. Take the courageous step to prioritize your mental health and reach out today.
