After graduating from the University of Florida with an undergraduate degree in English and Education, Chandra Alexander received her Masters degree in Social Work from Barry University, with intensive training and experience in traditional psychotherapy and counseling. Along the way, she developed top notch business experience, spending years in upper management with an HMO, consulting for General Motor's healthcare division, and developing two start-up companies. Today, she has a private practice in Tampa, FL, where (with her Buddha cat Sammy) she coaches clients all over the world in the areas of business and relationships. She has traveled the world, and also spent ten years in India, studying and meditating with a great spiritual master.
From April 2002 through November 2006, Ms. Alexander had a regular TV series on WFLA/NBC's DAYTIME called "Reality Check". In September 2005, she was selected by Oprah Magazine as the Life Coach to deliver 12 coaching sessions to the first prize winner of their Toyota Moving Forward essay contest.
Her books and CDs are always about bravery and authenticity. Her first book Reality Works, Let It Happen is for those who want their spirituality straight-up, bite-sized chapters on what it takes to make the journey authentic, and her new book, TRASHtionalizations, (How To Stop Believing Your Own Excuses and Have A Real Relationship) is like having a therapist in your purse - open to any page and you will be snapped back to reality. Ms. Alexander's CDs correct the focus, and point you inward. A Working Relationship with the Mind, CD, gives you the edge in business, teaches you how to meditate, and reveals how having a good relationship with your mind is the foundation of all good relationships. Her 3-disc CD, The Real Deal, How to Be It, How to Get It reminds us that love is an introspective process, and that the relationship you have with yourself is ultimately the one you have with everyone else. And finally, her new CD, Breaking and Healing, When Relationships Don't Work, gives you insight and courage to create relationships that bring you self-esteem and self-respect.
