Alexa worked for 5 years servicing high-risk teens and families, both in non-profit agencies and behavioral schools, with the goal of keeping teens from entering DJJ or harming themselves.
She started her private practice in 2014, working also with teens and families to enhance their relationships, offer communication tools, and elevate their sense of worth, agency, and happiness.
Alexa loves mending relationships and helping teens and adults find their strengths and abilities in order to conquer obstacles and build better lives.
Alexa also benefits from speaking Portuguese and understanding the unique needs of the Brazilian community in South Florida, such as their particular customs and the difficulty of them integrating into the American culture.
