Supportive. Caring. Empathetic.
Hi! My name is Alexandra Tomlin, and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor. My desire to help others began very early on, as I knew I wanted to be a therapist when I was in middle school. I went on to earn a BS in Early Childhood and Elementary Education from The University of Alabama. In 2019, I immediately pursued my interest of mental health counseling at Clemson University and obtained a Master's of Education and an Educational Specialist Degree.
My practicum experience took place at The Phoenix Center- White Horse Academy, in their residential setting working with teens struggling with substance use, anxiety, depression, and related concerns. My first internship setting continued with The Phoenix Center in their adolescent outpatient unit. My last semester of internship was at a private practice, Riner Counseling, where I was able to work with individuals struggling with addiction, anxiety, depression, grief, relationship related concerns, parenting, PTSD, and co-dependency.
I work with individuals, couples, and families that are struggling with postpartum anxiety and/or depression, infertility, women's issues, grief, life transitions, stress, relationship difficulties. I also really enjoy helping those that are struggling with career concerns, identity concerns, and parenting. One of the most important aspects in therapy is the therapeutic relationship, and I will work hard to help you feel heard, understood, and assist you in identifying ways to manage current struggles. I find it absolutely remarkable to listen to my client's stories, and watch them make personal and amazing growth!
When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my husband, and our two dogs, Tucker and Clifford (cute names, right!?). I enjoy going to sporting events, local events, and attend Orange Theory classes.
