Reviews

"I have been seeing Dr. Alvarado for over half a year now and he has been great to speak to. His style of 'teaching one how to fish over giving a fish' helps me develop the tools necessary to work through my own concerns - allowing me to be a happier person on my own accord. I plan to continue working with Dr. Alvarado for the foreseeable future."

"Dr. Alvarado truly exceeded all my expectations. I had been timid for so long about opening up to a psychologist, but therapy with his group has changed my life for the better. Trust, comfort, and rapport comes natural which makes opening up so much easier. Through this therapy I have learned to articulate my emotions, learn more about myself, and take more Control over my life. Simply put: with this therapy, I am living a better life."

"Such a down to earth and caring guy! I've tried out a few therapists before him to find a good long-term fit and it was not even a comparison. My experience with him was great and I can't wait to go back!"

"During the time I've seen Alex I've reached goals I never thought were possible in both my work and personal life. With the tools I've learned from our time together, as well as his motivation and compassion, I feel like my best self. I used to get very hung up on minor details, but Alex has been amazing at helping me see the bigger picture."
