About Alexandra Hinton

Welcome! My name is Alexandra, a mountain-loving, meditating licensed therapist in Denver, Colorado with one goal ... to help you pursue your life and athletic adventures with passion. In short, I provide clients with a dynamic and supportive platform to improve their mental health, strength and flexibility. Doing so is sometimes seen as a luxury or weakness in a our culture.  However I consider it normal if not critical maintenance of our most powerful resource: your mind.   My first exposure to the world of mental health and training occurred as a 15 year old highly competitive athlete, stuck in a rut of anxiety and burnout.  While working with a sport psychologist, the powerful lessons, support and motivation I received planted a seed that has led me, now twenty years later, to offer this same service to my own clients. My formal training began in 2008 as a clinicial mental health therapist at Children's Hospital Colorado.  It has continued through my own private practice as well as a masters in Sport & Performance Psychology from the University of Denver.  This along with extensive experience as a competitive collegiate athlete, world traveler and intuitive listener allows me to keenly connect to each unique clients' stories and goals.

In addition, I have developed a speciality in addressing stress and emotional obstacles within both sport/performance + life arenas.  Specific issues I most often address include:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Stress Management
  • Body Image Dissatisfaction
  • Working through Burnout
  • Returning from Injury/Concussion
  • Disordered Eating
  • Strengthing Coping Skills
  • Motivation Enhancement
  • Communication + Assertiveness
  • Building your Support Tribe
  • Athelte Career Transitions
  • Being your Best Badass Self!
Whether our work together is brief or long, I am eager to get to know you and get started!
