"When I started counseling for the first time ever, I was incredibly nervous. I didn’t know what to expect and worried it would be awkward. I was also worried about how I could connect to a therapist and the possibility of getting attached. When I first saw Alex, she helped to ease all of my fears. She created a comfortable and safe space for me to start openly sharing things I had bottled up for many years. We made progress that I could have never dreamed possible, and she stuck with me the entire time. Towards the end of our time together, she shared with me that she had planned on going in a different direction in one of our early meetings, but she saw that I could benefit from spending more time on my feelings. I was so impressed with her ability to adapt her plans and strategy to best fit me and what I was currently going through. I am so very glad I started counseling at PGH counseling and wellness. I have gained a new perspective and new coping skills which I employ daily."
