Trauma Healing, Nervous System Regulation
& Somatic Experiencing® for Individuals,
Couples, & Groups


Alexandra grew up in Wisconsin, whereas a child she loved riding horses, adventuring solo in the woods, and writing poetry. In adolescence, Alexandra experienced sexual trauma, went through a period of self harm, and struggled with body image, addiction, and depression. 


After college, Alexandra moved to Colorado. Then, on her 26th birthday, she first discovered the healing power of the Be Free Breathwork process.  It was then Alexandra sought out spiritual healing containers to address the trauma, anger, pain, and disconnection that lived in her body. It was then that she completed a 3-year Apprenticeship with a Celtic Mystery School, discovering a deep connection to shadow work, the rhythms of Nature, and leading Women's Circles. 

The completion of this program sparked a flame of passion for being of service to the wellbeing of others through alternative healing modalities. Alexandra soon completed 500hrs of Yoga Certification, 600hrs Massage Therapy Certification, Be Free Breath work training, and a Shamanic Practitioner Immersion and Apprenticeship.  

Alexandra has been working one on one with individuals, and with groups in a therapeutic capacity through the above services now for 10 years. 2020 clearly shook everything up for literally everyone. For Alexandra, what landed after the storm was the desire to support people in their healing in a much deeper and traditionally educated way.

Alexandra enrolled in Peter Levine's Somatic Experiencing Practitioner training with the International Institute for Trauma Healing in December 2020. Throughout the next year, Alexandra completed her first year of training and is now embarking on the second year of three.

Additional to that,  Alexandra is a co-owner of The Be Free Healing Center in Fort Collins, CO 
She is also the mother of 2 young boys and is excited about sharing Nervous System awareness to everyone who'll listen, playing and arranging music, and finding ways to be creative amongst the chaos of life.
