Alexa Adams

Licensed Marriage Family Therapist

Hello! With a specialization in couple's therapy, my goal is to help individuals connect with one another on a deeper, more intentional level. I also hold a special interest in complex trauma and the impact this has on intimate relationships.

My Approach

We all bring our unique selves, our pasts, and family histories into each relationship. It can be challenging to find balance and harmony with so many different factors interacting with and against each other. I absolutely believe that everyone can benefit from relationship therapy. I love working with and discovering the intricacies each relationship holds. I am also dedicated in my work with complex trauma, both on the individual level and with how trauma interacts with the relationship system. I do not hold tight to one particular model due to the complexity and uniqueness that each client brings to the therapy experience. I tend to pull from narrative, structural, strategic, and emotion-focused therapy approaches. I love experiential therapy techniques and will often bring these into the room. I also utilize my intuition and energy that each client brings into the space.

My Background

I have extensive experience working with couples, families, individuals, youth, and adolescents who have experienced complex trauma and related attachment injuries. I also hold experience working with transgender/non-binary youth and adults, as well as the families of gender diverse youth.
