"My therapist,Alex is attentive and personable. Through our conversations I have learned a lot about myself and how I process."

"Alex Braswell is a very caring and concerned therapist. I appreciate her expertise and compassion through the healing process of EMDR. I am experiencing positive results. I’m thankful she is walking with me through this journey."

"I feel like, for the first time in my life, I am getting what I need when I need it, in terms of trauma therapy. Alexandra is responsive to what is needed in the moment and for ongoing coping mechanisms during the week. She is remarkably insightful about what drives the overwhelming trigger responses and resistance to moving out of the automatic trauma responses."
