About Me

Hello and welcome! I am a Licensed Professional Counselor licensed in Texas with 10 years of experience .
I graduated with a Master of Science degree in Psychology from Our Lady of the Lake University.
I have worked with a variety of different clients with various concerns including depression/anxiety, relationship issues, job conflicts, grief/loss and in general, adjusting to transitions in life that we all experience at one point or another.

Thanks for the help!

Alejandra is an empathic listener and creates ample space for you to process what you're going through. I feel things shifting as I am working with her. People who listen as well as she does are a rare breed. She is a great companion if you are trying to work through a specific issue or are feeling ambiguous about your life choices. Highly recommend.

Dr Machado listens to me and provides positive feedback in a nonjudgmental way. I appreciate her insight and how she provides a realistic approach to understanding my thoughts and feelings.

Alejandra has given me the ability to see situations with a different perspective. The tools she provides are relevant and beneficial to learning more about myself and how I react to certain experiences. I feel she listens well and provides good feedback.

I hope everyone that uses this service benefits as much from the help of their therapist as I have from my work with Ms Machado. It has been a fantastic service and Ms Machado is the best!

Alejandra was my first match on BetterHelp and after reading her initial message I knew she would be great to work with. She’s completely compassionate and makes me feel like she truly cares.

Written by L.O. on Sep 18, 2020 after therapy with Alejandra for 3 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, lgbt, and eating disorders

I genuinely appreciate this service so very much. This feels like a safe place for me to seek help at my pace during this very hectic time. Alejandra never makes me feel pressured or like this is an obligation but rather that I am seeking help in the healing process. I appreciate this so much because so many other parts of my life feel out of my control and overwhelming. Its so helpful to me that this method of therapy is available as otherwise I don't think I'd be able to pursue help.

Written by J.A. on Jul 22, 2020 after therapy with Alejandra for 1 month on issues concerning stress, anxiety

I was hesitant to engage the services of a counselor at first, but ultimately I’m glad I did. Furthermore, I’m glad Alejandra was my counselor. She listened to my many issues with genuine interest and offered her insightful thoughts in like manner. She’s the first counselor I’ve ever had, and I believe the multiple sessions I’ve had with her have been very helpful. She certainly made me feel better about my problems. I highly recommend her, and when I restart my subscription with BetterHelp I hope she will continue to be my counselor, not only because I would rather not start over with someone new, but because she made me feel very comfortable discussing my problems with her.
