About Alexandra Marshall


I’m skilled at working with clients whose emotions feel out of control. I help give them a feeling of choice and empowerment in reacting to emotional situations. Making choices that meet your emotional needs vs. reacting can improve relationships, decrease unwanted behaviors, and improve self-worth.

Alex's Focus

In my family, food was both love and something to be wary of.  I’ve tried every diet and plan available – hoping to change my relationship with food to something “normal” – even if I didn’t know what normal meant!  Over time and through training, I’ve come to see that a healthy relationship with food is possible and that I recognize my emotional needs find ways to meet them, without turning to food as a comfort or an answer.  As I saw a positive change in my own life and realized how common and painful emotional eating can be, I became dedicated to helping other people overcome compulsive, emotional, or binge eating from the inside out.

Alex's Other Specialities

Because I myself have experienced and overcome feelings of sadness, anxiety, and uncertainty, I know that you don’t have to continue to feel this way. In therapy, we can begin to work through your negative thoughts and emotions and develop your strengths, resources, and instincts – increasing your confidence and sense of well-being. Sometimes the most important first step is knowing that you are not alone and that someone is here to listen and hear you talk about your experiences.

I believe that we are often surrounded by a cacophony of well-meaning advice and suggestions that can be difficult to interpret and incorporate into our lives. Struggling to accommodate our own beliefs along with those of the important people in our lives can leave us feeling frustrated and lonely. However, I believe that changing the way we think about these messages and interactions can change the emotions we experience during them.

More About Alex

When we meet I will prioritize ensuring that you feel heard and understood and will strive to demonstrate empathy and caring for your thoughts and feelings. From there, I will collaborate with you to change some of your automatic thoughts and assumptions that may be preventing you from accessing your own intrinsic abilities and strengths. Finally, I will work with you to develop plans of action and the skills you feel you need to make the changes you want to make in your life.
