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.

So far she’s amazing!
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.
