Alexandra Restelli, LISW

Philosophy of Care

At an early age I became aware that helping others was a passion of mine and that this was something I wanted to share with others. I view therapy as an opportunity for individuals to grow and to challenge themselves to become more aware of their needs, mentally and emotionally. It is important for us as humans to express our feelings in a safe and nurturing space in order to begin the healing and rebuilding process.

I am a Licensed Independent Social Worker for the state of Ohio experienced in working with individuals with severe mental illness as well as personality disorders in the community, psychiatric facilities and correctional facilities.  I have been working as a Social Worker since 2015 to which I obtained my independent license in 2020. I have clinical experience providing individual counseling, family counseling, crisis assessments and interventions, adolescent therapy, co-occurring disorders (dually diagnosed), and disorders ranging from anxiety, depression to trauma related disorders. 

My goal as a therapist is to create a safe and respectful space for you to share your goals. I feel that therapy is a great tool for success as well as a healthy way to maintain our stress levels. I look forward to establishing a healthy clinical relationship to support building your strengths and creating goals to discover the best you!
