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.

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.
Experienced professionals like Alex are hard to find. Especially those who have worked with individuals on the autism spectrum with comorbidities like Anxiety, Depression, OCD, and ADHD - all of which are common in autism. Alex isn't someone who is there for you just 1 hour out of the week. She is like a personal concierge who responds to all your messages in a timely manner with the insight and expertise we all expect from our mental health professionals (but rarely ever find).
Due to my autism I am very literal and am at ease when someone takes the time to "spell it all out" for me and Alex does just that in her detailed messages (that I know must take her a while to create). For someone struggling with issues similar to mine, reading her messages is just what I need to help me refocus and know I'll be alright. Thank you Alex. I wish there were more like you out there!
Very easy to talk to, attentive, and empathetic. Has a calm style that allows you to feel safe. Strongly recommend.
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.
