Clinical Counselor

Alex Eckhardt

Taking the first step in seeking recovery from an eating disorder can be challenging. Together, I believe that we can work to identify and change the behaviors affecting your health and wellbeing. I want to help you attain a healthy physical and emotional life and fulfillment of your talents while overcoming the challenges you face.

As a clinical counselor, I strive to help my clients develop and accomplish their own recovery-oriented goals. I do so through active listening to my clients; providing an empathic, non-judgmental space where each client may speak openly and honestly about the struggles they face; and, challenging those thoughts, beliefs, and behaviors that do not serve to enrich their lives. I acknowledge the influence of our environment including the influence of family, society,and culture on our worldview. Keeping these influences in mind, I strive to empower my clients to identify and challenge factors that contribute to their struggles, explore their unique identities, and begin to build upon on their personal strengths.

I received bachelor’s degrees in Psychology and Spanish from the University of New Mexico in 2013; and, a master’s degree in Counseling from the University of New Mexico in 2019.
