Alexandra Myhill-Jones is Newbridge’s clinical counselor, serving the mental health needs of our patients. She is a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in Minnesota, and holds a Master of Education degree, Bachelor of Education degree, and Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of British Columbia, Canada. She is a seasoned educator, with 7 years of experience in private and public school systems, both as an elementary school teacher and school counselor.
Alexandra works with adults, children and families with a range of diagnoses and circumstances, and has experience with those who suffer from chronic and complex conditions, including PANS/PANDAS, Lyme disease, and Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD). She also supports families who are navigating their child’s diagnosis within the school setting, particularly with IEPs and 504 plans. Alexandra also holds a special interest in the application and integration of neuroscience and neurotherapy in treating mental health issues.
With a deep appreciation for functional medicine, she believes that health is multifactorial, and she aims to go beyond the diagnoses of her patients, examining the underlying root causes of mental, behavioral, and neurological health conditions. At the core of Alexandra’s clinical counseling practice is an integrative perspective. She works collaboratively with Newbridge’s providers, including our psychiatric-mental health nurse practitioner (PMHNP), with an understanding that mental and emotional wellbeing cannot be isolated from one’s physical health. Alexandra takes a holistic approach while counseling, too, aiming to help her clients seek a variety of treatment options for their mental health, so that they can achieve a sense of balance and harmony in their lives. She provides a safe, calm, and supportive space for children, adults, and their families to be themselves and to gain skills and gather tools to manage symptoms like anxiety, depression, and the many other related symptoms.
