More about me
Years in Practice: 6
My name is Alexandria Schenk, you can call me Alex, my pronouns are she/her/hers. I am a licensed professional counselor licensed in Virginia. I work with individuals with a wide range of needs including depression, anxiety, overcoming life stressors, relationship difficulties, parenting concerns, sexual, physical and collective/generational traumas and abuse, emotional growth, communication needs, boundary setting, identity questions, serious mental illness, and family of origin wounds.
I work from the lens of wellness for the whole person, incorporating mindfulness, and physical, mental, and emotional well-being, through the context of relationship. I believe growth and healing come from power held in the individual I am working with, and I aim to empower each person to access this from within themselves. My ultimate goal is to provide safe space for my client to feel seen, heard, respected, and empowered, in order to encourage and promote one’s journey towards healing. I utilize a holistic, healing-centered counseling approach, focusing on promoting emotional and psychological healing through a person-centered, trauma-informed, somatic lens.
I work with each individual based on their specific needs. This may look like utilizing mindfulness therapy to reengage with your body, to find grounding or access stored trauma. It often includes in depth processing of your experiences to work towards integrating your physical experience with your thoughts and emotions. Doing so can help you to better understand yourself, and learn to effectively communicate your thoughts, needs, and feelings to those you are in relationship with. Some sessions may look very practical and task oriented, some may be more focused on processing and emotional experience. Sometimes you may just need someone to sit with you in the midst of difficulty.
Seeking help and support is counter cultural and courageous, you are choosing to care for yourself in a powerful way. You are capable and worthy of growth and healing, and I am here to encourage and empower your pursuit. I look forward to meeting you.
About online counseling
Online counseling allows you to receive care from an online mental health practitioner via phone, video chat, or instant messaging. It is convenient for those who may have trouble getting to or would prefer not to have in-person therapy appointments. Ranging from $35 to $80 per week, online counseling is generally more affordable than in-person counseling. A study by researchers at University of California, Berkeley found that online counseling can be just as effective as face-to-face therapy while being more convenient, affordable, and accessible.
