About Me

Hi! I'm Alex and my practice is called Empowered by Alex. In alignment with my practice name, I seek to encourage and empower all of my clients to live a life they're proud of! I use EMDR as my primary modality, as well MBCT and yoga, as I am a certified yoga teacher. I specialize in trauma (including recent event and childhood), depression, anxiety, health issues, self-harm, suicide, and more. I primarily see teens, families, and young adults.

Education & Experience

I received my master of Social Work degree from the University of Texas at Arlington. I completed an internship at Cook Children's in the NICU and went on to work at Cook in various roles including working with teens after suicide attempts or children/teens experiencing mental health problems while hospitalized. I obtained my clinical hours while working for GPISD in various secondary schools This is where I discovered my passion for working with teens and families.
