Supportive. Caring. Empathetic.
Hi! My name is Alexandra Tomlin. I received 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. I am also a National Certified Counselor (NCC).
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 anxiety, depression, grief, life transitions, stress, relationship difficulties, body-image concerns, postpartum anxiety or depression. I also enjoy helping those that are struggling with career concerns, identity concerns, and parenting. In my office and counseling process, the therapeutic relationship is one of the most important aspects to me as a counselor. I also use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT), and Reality Therapy. Throughout this therapeutic journey, we will work together to achieve goals that you desire. 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 significant other, and our Goldendoodle! I also enjoy being outside, as well as spending time with our friends who live near and far.
