I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and a Licensed Chemical Dependency Counselor here in the state of Texas. I have been working part time for 4 of the last 6 years. I took the opportunity to travel for the other 2 years and spent that time in Europe and Southeast Asia working with diverse populations and experiencing living different lifestyles. I have worked with a wide range of clients including those that struggle with autism spectrum disorders, substance abuse disorders, process addictions like self-harm and eating disorders, depression, anxiety, dual-diagnosed clients, ADHD, and interpersonal issues. The majority of my experience has been with adolescents and collegiate aged individuals and/or addiction populations.
I operate from a client-centered approach. I believe that understanding how you see yourself and the world around you is the first step towards helping you address the issues you would like to work on. I utilize various other counseling techniques that may be helpful to your unique situation and tailor treatment to each individual.
I believe that asking for help is the bravest thing a person can do. If people are willing to meet halfway, then I will be here to support you in meeting your goals and becoming the person you want to be.
I look forward to walking with you in this journey.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Alexandria Harville. We don’t pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.
Alexandria has really helped in a short time and she provides me with “homework” which has been activities I can practice to start helping with my situation. She is a great listener and makes this process easy for me.
Very thorough and a great memory. Couldn’t have found a better therapist anywhere else. Thank you.
alex is incredible at her job. it’s been a pleasure working with her thus far and i’m excited to continue!
Alex is a wonderful therapist.
Each day we are scheduled, I want to cancel and isolate myself, but I meet her anyway because I know her help and expertise is what I need; whether I am feeling bad or think I am maintaining.
I am thankful for every talk we have.
Alex listens to every word, and recalls what I mentioned months ago (especially when applicable to our current conversation).
Alex offers great advice too!
Today, for example, I was bummed because my Sister refused to watch our Parents so I could take her kids to the movies. Then Alex reminded me how I have nursing students who had offered to help and needed the money. It NEVER occurred to me to ask them to watch my Parents in the evening. Now I’m going to the movies, WITH my selfish Sister in tow!
I've only spent a few weeks with Alex, but it's been so great! She's patient and kind while also confronting my unhelpful beliefs in a way where I feel safe and like we're on the same team. All in all, it's been a great experience. I wish I would have started sooner!
Alexandria is the best!
Alexandria is wonderful!
Alex is super easy to talk to and very… real. Her communication and understand are so great and helpful! Very grateful
She really helped me work through a number of issues and helped me process how to deal with a difficult time in my life. She has availability in the evening, which is very convenient as I have a full time job during the day. She is not afraid to tell you when you are in the wrong, but she isn't going to make you feel bad about it. Working with her, I think I have made real progress and her advice and support was critical to that progress.
I’ve been seeing Alexandria throughout my pregnancy and she has helped me with so many aspects. Each session she gives me something to work on for the week and every time it has been extremely helpful. She does such a good job at giving me an unbiased perspective on things while also being compassionate. In addition to helping me work through the crazy emotions of pregnancy she has encouraged me to focus on my physical health. This was a completely unexpected result of therapy, but I now see the importance in the results I’m getting. This last week my partner pointed out the positive difference he’s seen in my mental state since I started. This chaotic time in my life has significantly improved thanks to Alexandria.
She’s been so helpful these past few weeks. I’ve been going to therapy for years and it’s rare that I just connect with a therapist instantly like I have with her. Always asking meaningful questions and willing to listen and help break down the emotions you’re feeling.
Alexandria is such a thoughtful listener. She gives me applicable advice that is easy to implement into my busy life.
Very easy to talk to, attentive, and empathetic. Has a calm style that allows you to feel safe. Strongly recommend.
Alex successfully taught me to understand and cope with my travel anxiety and fears. I was struggling with anxiety attacks and fear about returning to “normal” life after a lengthy pandemic lockdown period, and worried that I’d never be able to enjoy traveling again after some difficult past experiences.
Her help could not have come at a better time, as the strategies she taught me helped me keep my anxiety more controlled through both a crowded, turbulent plane trip and an unexpected family medical emergency. I am confident in my ability to handle these stressful events in the future.
I’ve felt misunderstood in the past by other therapists who were too eager to talk right away about medication, didn’t address how my ADHD can make some things more difficult, or didn’t fully understand adult ADHD. Alex took my other conditions like ADHD and stress migraines into account when making recommendations, which was a huge help, and I really felt listened to.
Alexandria was a great help to me in sorting out my feelings and making better decisions! Definitely would recommend!
Amazing and very sweet and genuine person!
I feel more confident and less worried and it was really nice to be able to speak with someone about my personal thoughts and life.
Alex is wonderful! I’m pretty new with her, but I can already tell she has a really strong understanding of LGBT issues and how to help LGBT patients. She’s so friendly and professional and responsive. Wonderful experience so far.
