Sarah Alexander's bio

This content was provided by Sarah Alexander "I graduated from the University of Virginia in 1995 with an undergraduate double major in Psychology and Gender Studies. I received my Masters of Social Work degree from Portland State University in 2005. I have been a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in the state of Oregon since 2008. I have worked in a community mental health setting for substance abuse, a partial hospitalization intensive day-treatment setting for eating disorders, a university counseling center, a research study for HIV, and private practice. I have experience working with issues of addiction, co-dependency, depression, anxiety, life-transitions, eating disorders, relational issues, Gay/Lesbian issues, and parenting issues. I work with adults only (18 years and older) in individual counseling."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Sarah Alexander "I work with adults who want to change the way they treat themselves and/or the way they interact with others. Sometimes people come to me in ACTION stage: They know what they need to change, they just don't know how to do it. When these people are highly motivated and willing to do more work between sessions than in session, a lot can happen in a relatively short amount of time. Sometimes people come to me in CONTEMPLATION stage: They know what they need to change, they know they definitely want to get rid of some of the problems associated with the problem, but they are reluctant to give up the benefits associated with it and they're not sure how to live any other way. Ambivalence such as this can take longer to work through. Either way, progress and growth are possible."
