"Everybody in the world is seeking happiness-
and there is one sure way to find it. That is by controlling
your thoughts. Happiness doesn't depend on outward
conditions. It depends on inner conditions."

Hello! I’m Alexandra Afanasyeva
No matter where you are in California, professional therapy is only a click away. I offer convenient video sessions for women, men, and couples.
I don’t know where I would be without your incredible compassion each week. Thank you for helping me become a better person and for helping me navigate through this tough time. I am so grateful
Anna Bromstein, CEO or a tech company
I’ve learned a lot during our work together. Each session feels like a small education. You are direct and always call out and stop me when I start repeating my previous way of thinking. I appreciate that! We revisited my traumatic childhood experiences and you provided as much time as I needed to uncover and express my thoughts and feelings fully. I felt comfortable with you to share those painful memories
Jerand Friedman, cardiologist
I appreciate your attention in connecting past and present and how they tight together. Your directions during the sessions to call out on my feelings and emotions. You are not judgemental at all which is greatly appreciated
Sean Bean, fitness instructor
Alexandra is an immigrant like me. She had no problem to meet my Russian part and well as an American. She would easy normalize my experiences of not being fully myself. She helped me to understand that I have two identities, and they both have their strengths and weaknesses. She helped me to get where I want to be, without changing who I am.
Nicole Smith, student
My family and I are just blessed by knowing you. We are still a family. I have been so lucky to work with you during my marriage difficulties. Thank you for being supportive, caring and thoughtful during the session and always available over the phone.
Inna Black, newly mom
Alexandra understood me as no one else in my life. I met my old self during those sessions; a smart, intelligent, decisive and sometime impulsive person. I didn’t feel myself as a victim anymore but more as a survivor. Thank you for saving my life.
