About me

I am a licensed counselor with over 10 years of experience working in the field. I consider it an honor and great privilege to be able to walk alongside my clients on their journey toward health, wellness, and success, no matter what challenges they might face. I have extensive experience in trauma-informed care which has proven to be helpful fo numerous clients over the years who have been facing struggles related to early life trauma. I have worked primarily with persons who range in age from 21+, along with couples-related counseling as well.

My approach to counseling is one that maintains a high level of respect for the client's personal expertise in their own life. I am not here to tell you what to do, I'm here to help you find, within yourself, the way forward in life, no matter the circumstances. I approach each session and discussion with warmth and empathy, striving to truly hear you and understand what needs are present.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Dr. Gary Alexander. 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.

Dr. Alexander is one counselor I would strongly recommend. He is attentive, genuine, and passionate in what he does. The positive impact he made with my mental health is tremendous. I enjoy our sessions & I leave with great insight from him to help heal myself to the right direction. I see him consistently, even when I have only good news to tell. He is wonderful! Thank you!
