Alex believes that healing comes from within you, and within the context of relationship. In his practice as a therapist and a healer he has been able to take this belief and put it into practice with his clients. Alex found a new passion for healing in 2011 when he began studying the practice of Somatic Experiencing therapy, which focuses on positive psychology and the concept of healing at a biological and nervous system level (reconnecting the mind and body as one). As a facilitator and witness to this healing, Alex has had the privilege of working with clients experiencing a variety of presenting issues. It is his aim to provide a space for you to be your truest self, to help you to create more balance in your life, break free from old patterns, and expand your natural capacity to heal. Alex believes it is honor and a blessing to be a partner in this healing relationship with clients, their families, and their partners.
Alex experience working with diverse populations and settings, including inpatient, outpatient, children, teens, adults, families, and with chronic mental illness. This experience comes from having worked in non-profit organizations, hospitals, rehabilitation centers, spiritual centers, juvenile justice, and private practice.
