When you share your story with Alex, he’ll listen to truly hear you. You’ll feel safe in the nonjudgmental therapy space he provides regardless of gender, sexual orientation, trauma, race/ethnicity, religion, and/or unique lived experiences. You’ll be accepted for where you’re at and gently pushed toward change, perhaps with a dash of humor and irreverence mixed in.
Alex’s clients can learn to accept, understand, and address depression, anxiety, trauma, addiction, adjustment to life events, relational issues, personality disorders, anger, phobias, schizophrenia (and other thought disorders), mood disorders, stress-related problems, and much more. He crafts his therapeutic environment around empathy, understanding, consideration, and aspiration using a strengths-based approach. He uses an eclectic set of skills to understand and connect with clients, including active listening, radical empathy, emotional understanding and comprehension, and skills emphasizing individual strengths. He subscribes to numerous modalities and methods like DBT, CBT, ACT, Motivational Interviewing, MBCT, person-centered, IPT, Narrative Therapy, Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, Strengths-Based, and TF-CBT.
With a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from the University of Colorado at Boulder and a Master’s degree in Social Work from Metropolitan State University, Alex has worked in community mental health, residential programs, and inpatient hospital settings with a wide variety of individuals with intersectional identities and issues pertaining to class, religion, sexual/gender identity, and race/ethnicity.
