I am a Licensed Professional 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.

Spent a few months on Betterhelp with Alex and I learned alot about myself that I couldn't figure out on my own without her help. Each sessions I came out of with something new and insightful. The systems on the platform that didn't really help the Therapists she managed to work through each week with grit. She was very considerate and comforting to chat with each session and that was consistent throughout my time on the platform. Hope to work with her again when possible.

Very intuitive and understanding to my needs. I always look forward to our session and find them all to be different and helpful every time. She is consistently professional with helping me and gives me tools to work through issues on my own time too.

Alex is the Best!
I am so lucky to have found her when I did. She saved me and has helped me through some dark times. Each week we work on improving my understanding of the world and those around me. I like how the work is never done. I believe that self-improvement is a journey, not a destination.
I am a loner with few people who I am close enough with to connect at a deeply personal level, so (for someone like me) having access to a professional who remembers everything we’ve discussed in the past and who genuinely cares for my mental health and well being is a gift and a privilege that cannot be overstated.

I've had a few therapists and Alex is the best. She's caring, intelligent, and actually recommends actions for you to take, and solutions to work towards. I prefer this style over having a therapist who only listens. Alex has been a big help.

Alex is wonderful. Definitely 100% work with her! She gives me doable goals and helps me process what steps I need to take to keep moving in the right direction, even when it’s hard.
