Alex Green, MS, LPC (76600)

The human experience is faced with times of challenge, change and adversity. Our strength lies within our reaction to these challenges. I will work with you to utilize your strengths, make healthy decisions and develop positive habits to remain resilient and adaptable during these times. Understanding the power of our own choices can be liberating, empowering and provides a focus for change. As we work together, I will provide a safe space, free of judgement, for you to be transparent, authentic and express your emotions about your life experiences. From this place, we will build a partnership to facilitate clarity and growth. I believe our working relationship is of the utmost importance, and I will encourage a free-flow of feedback to ensure you are getting what you need.

I am proud and inspired to do the work of a counselor. It is my commitment to offer encouragement and support along your path to change. What I find most rewarding is witnessing an individual find their own sense of strength, validation, and courage to pursue their goals and gain self-acceptance. 

LICENSE, EDUCATION, and EXPERIENCE

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in both Texas and Illinois. My Bachelors of Arts degree in Psychology and Masters of Science degree in Rehabilitation Counseling (2007) are both from Southern Illinois University. I have had the privilege of working in many different settings and treating a multitude of disorders, such as anxiety, depression, bipolar, borderline personality disorder, anger management, and relationship issues, among others. My experience includes work in outpatient community mental health, crisis assessment, residential substance abuse, vocational rehabilitation counseling and employee assistance programs. I have provided both group and individual counseling for youth, couples, adults and workplace counseling to USPS employees. My approach largely pulls from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, with an eclectic blend of techniques depending on the needs of my client. 

Healthy living is a daily practice and lifestyle I truly value. I enjoy salsa dancing, learning, travel, and spending time with friends and family.
