Health Service Psychology Doctoral Intern
Counseling and Psychological Services

Born and raised a nomad belonging to a government family, Alex grew up in countries such as Costa Rica, Israel, Germany, South Korea, and the U.S.A. He spent the longest time in Germany, then Virginia. After receiving a B.S. in psychology from Brigham Young University - Idaho and an M.A. in Mental Health Counseling from Boston College, he is now in his last year of his Ph.D. program in Counseling Psychology from BYU as an intern here at Ohio University’s CPS. Alex has worked with adolescents and adults in a variety of settings including residential treatment centers (groups homes), college counseling centers, and private practice. His clinical interests include trauma care, group therapy, body image concerns, identity transitions, and couples/family counseling. His therapeutic style includes a combination of interpersonal methods, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Gestalt therapy. While working with Alex, he will seek to incorporate as much information about you as possible: your multicultural context (e.g., race, spirituality, gender, sexual orientation), frameworks of thinking, patterns of behavior, your ability to identify and fulfill needs, and your personal strengths and abilities. When not at work, Alex enjoys writing short fiction, hiking, playing Legos with his 4-year-old or doing a puzzle (1000 piece, of course) with his partner.
