Alexandria Lanza, LPC, LCADC, ATR-BC, LPAT, ACS
Founder & CEO
Alexandria is an accomplished and highly regarded psychotherapist with a strong focus on substance abuse disorders, child and family psychology, and women’s life transitions. With her expertise in art therapy, she also serves as a supervisor for aspiring professional counselors, art therapists, and alcohol and drug counselors. Alexandria is widely recognized for her trauma-informed approach and her utilization of the nurtured heart method in both client interventions and supervision sessions.
As a psychotherapist, Alexandria is dedicated to helping her clients untangle the deep-seated beliefs that perpetuate their patterns of behavior. She firmly believes that true healing and personal growth come from understanding, acknowledging, and transforming negative belief systems.
The establishment of "Jaded Hearts - Center for Healing" has been a long-cherished dream for Alexandria, having been in the works for 15 years. It was the realization of the limited availability of prenatal and postpartum counseling services in New Jersey that finally propelled her to open the doors and offer independent services. In pursuit of this goal, Alexandria pursued advanced training in perinatal psychotherapy and perinatal mood and anxiety disorders.
Throughout her career, Alexandria has gained invaluable experience working in a variety of settings, including residential, partial care, outpatient, and in-home environments. She has worked extensively with individuals of all ages, from children to adults, who are grappling with co-occurring disorders, which involve both addiction and other mental health diagnoses occurring concurrently.
Alexandria's unwavering commitment to her clients' well-being, her expertise in substance abuse and child and family psychology, and her passion for art therapy and perinatal counseling make her an invaluable asset to the field of psychotherapy. With her nurturing and trauma-informed approach, she continues to make a profound impact on the lives of those she serves.
Jade is said to encourage self-realization by alleviating fear-based emotions and anxiety. It helps bring peace to the mind by releasing negative thoughts. Jade is believed to assist one with finding their heart's true desire and turn dreams into reality. It helps those accept their surroundings for what they are so they may detach from chaos - allowing room for balance, peace, love, and prosperity.
