Susan J Alexander, LMFT, Marriage & Family Therapist in Palm Desert, CA


"When we are caught in our mind we cannot feel our own beingness" I am dedicated to working with individuals, families, couples and young adults who are experiencing a range of emotional and behavioral concerns. Through client-centered sessions I offer a practice that deeply focuses on a myriad of issues including, anxiety, PTSD, depression, trauma, challenges with transitions in life stages, as well as finding purpose and searching for greater meaning and happiness. I seek to provide a space that is safe and supportive, where one can connect to and experience their deepest self, be listened to and validated.
My approach is compassionate, interactive and collaborative. My therapeutic work is drawn from a variety of modalities and practices that incorporate mindfulness, guided imagery, experiential,EMDR, DBT, trauma informed, transpersonal &inquiry. Clients also may benefit from somatic awareness strategies inspired from my many years as a yoga teacher.
With experience working in a number of different settings including private, hospital, the public and private schools and in County clinics I have familiarity with all age groups and skilled at modeling positive communication. My aim is help people establish good boundaries, have self -regulation, breed self esteem, uncover strengths.
