Hi, my name is Alexandra Bochte. Andi for short. I am a licensed professional counselor (LPC). I specialize in working with children and families. I have worked with children as young as 18 months old. Parent/guardian/caretaker participation is a critical component of helping children, so I invite parents/guardians/caretakers to actively participate in therapy.
Sometimes people get the idea that there's something wrong with you if you're going to therapy. This is not how I view my clients. I believe that therapy can be a tool for self-exploration, learning, and guidance. If a child has experienced trauma, abandonment, or something that is really scary for them, then therapy can be a great place to help process and understand these events. If a parent is struggling with helping a child, then therapy can help the parent learn new skills both for themselves and for their child.
Most of my therapy practice has focused on helping children and families in foster care or children who have experienced abuse and neglect. I have worked with children of all ages. I have worked with many different races and ethnicities. My therapy sessions will focus on the individual and what their needs are. I do not follow one regiment for treatment. I may incorporate CBT, DBT, mindfulness, TF-CBT, play therapy, art, and/or sandtray therapy. I focus on trauma and attachment models. Regardless of the type of treatment or the model, my focus will always be on the needs of the client and how I
can serve them best.
