A Bit About Me

I was born and raised in Washington Heights, a predominantly Latinx and Hispanic community in New York City. I am the daughter of two Dominican immigrant parents and the eldest of six, making me first-generation (& with hella responsibility). As a result of the "3 strikes" law, my father was deported to the Dominican Republic, and my mother was left to become a single parent and provider of 5 when I was just 12 years old.

As a result of my parents' roles changing and my mother entering the workforce, I transitioned into matriarch and became parentified. Shortly after that, while at work, a truck hit my mother and tore her ACL, which required surgery and post-op care. I often struggled to prioritize myself and my own needs because I had the needs of my siblings and mother to look after. This inability to set boundaries with oneself and others eventually made me feel disconnected from myself on a deep spiritual level.

It wasn't until I entered college and had my first-ever experience with therapy that I learned what trauma was and was able to witness how some of my childhood experiences had a lasting impact on me. Through therapy, and later with my father's passing that catapulted me into my spiritual journey, I began to acknowledge, understand and shed the layers that I had been wearing due to my early life experiences. As I began to heal and go within, I began to feel more in alignment with my true self. It is no wonder I am now helping others reconnect with themselves.

I understand that my experiences were necessary to help me do what my soul came here to do:

To guide and  to heal.

Get to know me better

Raised in Division 21 and recognizing that I come from a lineage of intuitive spiritual workers or 'brujas', it felt inauthentic to not integrate this special part of my life into my profession. 


Through my gifts, I am able to receive visions, messages and information from the spiritual realm that allows me to help clients gain a deeper understanding of themselves and their experiences.

fun facts...












"Alexmi is so good at what she does. She is intuitive and quick to pick up on the surface-level indications of deeper issues and meanings. I always leave each session reflective, with something to think about throughout the week leading up to my next session. I am so thankful to have found Alexmi !"
