About Me

Hi! My name is Alex Dixon, and I am a Licensed Master Social Worker in Michigan. As a committed psychotherapist in the realm of many different mental health conditions and life adjustments, I have found that I am deeply empathetic and passionate towards the therapeutic process itself. My goal is to bring as much value as possible to my clients lives by initiating the process of developing a therapeutic relationship. Throughout this commitment with my clients, varieties of evidence-based practices and therapy interventions will be used to initiate change.

Years of my clinical experience has lead me to specialize in working with both adolescent males and females ages 13-19. My clinical focus and interests is primarily around 3 mental health topics. 1) treating PTSD and trauma, including sexual abuse, physical abuse, and emotional abuse. 2) Depression, isolation, hopelessness, guilt/shame. 3) Anxiety, racing thoughts, excessive worrying, test anxiety, school issues, and social anxiety. While I specialize in those specific areas of mental health, I very much enjoy and have clinical experience in working with self-esteem/confidence issues, grief/loss, co-dependency, and life adjustments. To help bring value to my clients and initiate forward movement toward their identified goals, I primarily focus on building a therapeutic alliance. Once this alliance has been built, I use a variety of therapeutic interventions including some such as hypnosis and hypnotherapy, CBT, DBT, mindfulness, meditation, breathing exercises, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and more. I commend you as parents for initiating the therapeutic process for your child. My experience in working with adolescents has taught me it is a team effort. Parents involvement in treatment offers huge insight and perspective into building a therapeutic team and overall collaboration in your child's mental health. Lets build that collaboration and get started today!

I'm so appreciative to work with Alex. He has been really insightful in every meeting to work on what I need help with. The conversations feel very accepting and I enjoy that every meeting is so much different from the last. Even within the short amount of time we have been working together, I have grown and learned so much! 10/10!!

I like the fact that he is very on point and direct. He is straight forward and confronts me with my emotions.
He asks me do far very challenging question. I feel like I come up with the answers myself, which is good. He puts a lot of effort and time in our sessions. I can very much recommend him.

Alex has been extremely helpful since day 1. He listens to me, validates me, and has consistently provided me with support. He understands where I am coming from and is nonjudgmental in every way. I struggled to find a therapist that was a right fit for me, and I almost gave up. I am so thankful to have found him in the end.

This was my first time ever doing counseling. I had a hard time seeing the point and almost canceled. I proceeded with an open mind and on my first session quickly real eysed the point. Alex is a great counselor and has helped me through a rough chapter of my life. I am very thankful to the Universe for pairing us together. Thank you Alex for your service.

It's only our second week with Alex and we could not be more happier. He is an amazing listener and gets straight to the points. He is fair with giving us both time to speak and respond. My boyfriend amd I both feel that he is the best person for us to guide is through the rough patches in our relationship.

Alex gets it. He understands the process of overcoming obstacles and finding solutions to make life digestible. Step by step your capable of more than you think. Alex listens to the small details and creates an endearing relationship that feels like home.

An understanding between one another is hard to find, but it's what I've found with Alex.

Written by S.U. on Feb 28, 2021 after counseling with Alex for 2 weeks on issues concerning relationship

Our first visit with Alex through teen counseling was seemless. He was very concise in narrowing down our greatest and most immediate concerns and needs. Looking forward to getting to a deeper level.
