Alex Schell, MFT

Alex believes that a crucial component to lasting, satisfying relationships is clear communication. However, letting people know exactly what we want or how we feel is often easier said than done, especially if we have never been afforded the space or time to do that for ourselves. Alex seeks to provide clients with a non-judgmental space to slow down and investigate these deep desires for connection.

Whether working with an individual, couple, or family, Alex’s therapeutic style is highly collaborative, empathetic, and intersectional. Her training is rooted in relational and systems-based theory with the intention of creating a space that is holistic, client-centered, strengths-based, and trauma-informed. In addition to traditional talk therapy techniques, Alex often incorporates elements of somatic awareness and mindfulness honed from previous careers in dance and yoga.

Alex has a special affinity for working with LGBTQIA2S+ clients, artists, and performers. Topics explored with clients have included, but are not limited to: communication, attachment style, sex and sexuality, gender expression, polyamory and CNM, infidelity, body image perception, self-acceptance and self-love, and matters related to trauma and grief.

Alex graduated from Antioch University, a COAMFTE accredited university, with an M.A. in Marriage and Family Therapy and specialized training in grief and trauma-informed practice. Additionally, she holds a B.F.A. in Dance from New York University. She is a certified PREPARE/ENRICH facilitator with premarital counseling experience and has completed Level 1 Training in Gottman Method Couples Therapy.
