Hello, my name is Alexia Totoro. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) and Licensed Clinical Alcohol and Drug Counselor (LCADC) who has been active in the field of mental and behavioral health for over 10 years. Overall, I have diverse experiences revolving around my desire to continue to empower individuals to find their most authentic selves.
I once worked with a client for about 1 year who struggled enormously with social anxiety, low self-esteem, codependency, and childhood trauma. Through our work together, they were able to face their fears and become more confident, assertive, establish supportive relationships, process past trauma with forgiveness, and develop a positive outlook.
Every person’s situation is unique and so the counseling process with me is person-centered. The focus is on what is of most importance to an individual. I help my clients build greater self-awareness, distress tolerance, and interpersonal effectiveness.
My first session will be focused on learning about an individual's concerns and goals are and therapy is tailored in accordance with the individual's goals.
I am passionate about supporting and serving others since my childhood. Through my personal and professional experiences with individuals from all walks of life, I find joy.
What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?
My clinical perspective is warm, genuine, non-judgemental, person-centered, and goal-oriented. I am focused on the here and now and I want to know what is important to you and how we can move you towards your mental wellness goals.
What treatment methods and tools do you utilize?
I utilize evidence-based therapies, including cognitive-behavioral therapy and dialectical-behavioral therapy. Your treatment plan will be individualized and tailored to fit your specific needs.
Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.
I have primarily worked adolescents, adults, and the geriatric populations in individual and group therapy. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, substance use, addiction, trauma, social anxiety, mood disorders, and psychosis.
