Hello and welcome! I am a Licensed Professional Counselor licensed in Texas with 9 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. I believe that therapy can be a valuable tool in helping one cope with life's many challenges.
I enjoy having conversations with my clients in getting to know them better, as we work together to explore, understand and formulate goals that they may want to accomplish. My approach is collaborative in allowing you to guide what is most important to you, drawing from various theories such as cognitive behavioral and solution focused strategies.

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.
Ms. Machado has been enormously helpful, right from the start. Within a week, she had helped me identify areas of concern and began developing strategies to address those. Her insight has been enormously helpful to me. I look forward to the progress I can make with her guidance.
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.
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.
Very insightful, thought provoking and non judgmental. Helps frame my thoughts and focus on things that I need.
Alejandra is so thorough and picks up on things that I didn't even notice. I appreciate her writing style, it makes me feel like she really cares and that she is absolutely invested in me getting better. I am super happy with this website and the counseling I am receiving, thank you so much.
Totally amazing. Really gets to the heart of issues and helps you work through them.
Extremely professional. Wish I could continue working with her.
