Alexandra is uniquely qualified due to her education, training, experience, and large group of past and current clients whose diverse challenges provide her with data points to understand and recommend therapies. She has worked with hundreds of families. Alexandra also has relationships with an extensive network of professionals who provide these services worldwide so she can connect her families to those that are most appropriate for them. She is on the forefront of seeing and understanding the newest or developing neuroplastic ideas, studies and therapies and to keep current she continues to review, follow current research, and train in many of these therapies.
Not only are most people not told that methods exist to improve cognitive functioning, but if they are, there is limited information about how to access those methods. Alexandra is familiar with a myriad of neuroplastic therapies and methods and is dedicated to helping people navigate through them. This includes finding solutions that are tailored to the individual needs of that person or family based on affordability, proximity, and time available that they are able to commit to the solution. As well, her insight and expertise provide her with the ability to help people ascertain in what order the problems should be addressed. The brain, and its development, is complex. Being able to direct people to the right programs and methods, in the right order, is essential to getting maximum benefit in the most timely way. She is able to provide a road map for the best possible outcomes for a full life because, when you strengthen your brain, you improve your options.
