Alexandria Adeosun holds a Master’s Degree in Counseling Psychology with an emphasis in Marriage and Family Therapy from the University of San Francisco and a Bachelor’s Degree in Communication Studies with an emphasis in Conflict Resolution from San Francisco State University. In addition to her work as a therapeutic education consultant, Alex is a licensed marriage and family therapist. She has a small private practice working with young adults in San Francisco.
Alex joined Mallory, Baron, Ross, Kindler and Adeosun in 2013, working in all areas of the practice and training under therapeutic counselor Molly Baron as well as Jani Ross, Amanda Mallory, and the neuropsychology team that formerly practiced in our office. Concurrently, Alex worked in residential treatment centers doing individual, group and family therapy; she provided individual and crisis management support in high schools; and served as a group therapist with at-risk youth in the juvenile justice system. Alex’s professional experience spans providing individual and group therapy for adults and adolescents at a non-profit counseling center, a residential treatment center as an individual and family therapist to adolescents, young adults, and their families, a high school providing support for students and their families, and the juvenile justice system providing group therapy for adolescents.
As the head of our therapeutic practice, Alex assists and supports adolescents, young adults, and their families in finding short and long term residential placements, with consultative support from Molly Baron, longtime partner to the practice. Alex also supports families with intensive therapeutic support during transition in or out of programs. While Alex is not serving as her client’s therapist in this role, her background provides a clinical lens she brings to her work with clients, families and their care teams (psychologists, therapists, program managers, teachers, counselors).
Alex brings a personable and authentic approach to her work. She was drawn to this field after working as an outpatient therapist and saw a need for more dynamic support for clients. Her experience in outpatient counseling centers, middle and high schools, private practice, and other clinical settings, have helped her better understand the complex needs of adolescents and their families.
As a person of color, Alex knows how difficult it can be to find a provider who understands your perspective and yet, how important this is to a successful therapeutic relationship. Her goal is to hold space for clients and allow their voices to be heard as they navigate – together – finding an appropriate setting for their child or young adult.
