Professional Interests

Alejandro is a generalist right now but likes to work with the Latinx/Hispanic population, first generation students, bipolar disorder, trauma, men’s issues, and group therapy.

Approach to Therapy

Alejandro uses an integrative approach tailored to each client’s needs. At the core, he use a person-centered approach to build a relationship with clients and explore their world with them. He pulls from CBT, Interpersonal, and Logo-therapy as his techniques/interventions. With each client having their own experiences, culture, and overall life, he keeps a multi-cultural lens to explore how these have influenced someone’s life.

Approach to Wellness

Wellness is a priority of Alejandro's and he finds it to have an influence on our overall well-being. While we all have different perspectives on wellness, he likes to be active and move his body. As a distance runner, you might find him at local races. Other ways he prioritizes wellness is through cooking/baking, exploring new trails, and the beach!
