Krista Alexander , MD

Dr. Krista Alexander is a board-certified psychiatrist who loves equipping her fellow human beings to feel and function better.  She studied medicine at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School and completed her residency at Duke University.  She has worked in both private practice and integrated primary care/behavioral health care settings.  She is a member of the American Psychiatric Association and the North Carolina Psychiatric Association.

Krista offers medication management and supportive psychotherapy for mood disorders, anxiety disorders, trauma, ADHD, substance use disorders, and other mental health issues. She strives to embody “relational prescribing” and believes that med management is most effective in the context of a relationship of mutual trust, emotional safety, and shared decision-making between provider and patient. She has trained in psychodynamic psychotherapy and various forms of cognitive behavioral therapy, and tailors her approach to each patient’s individual strengths and needs.

Krista understands that the needs of the whole person must be addressed in order to facilitate growth and healing.  She enjoys collaborating with fellow medical/mental health providers to address a patient’s complex needs as an integrated team.
