As a therapist, speaker and writer, Alex helps people experience the gift of sexual and relational wholeness. He currently works in Los Gatos, CA as well on online sessions. Prior to working as a therapist, Alex spent 6 years as a college pastor at Stanford University, San Jose State University and Santa Clara University. Though he comes from a place of faith, Alex has treated clients from all creeds and walks of life.

Alex has written a curriculum specifically designed to help teens overcome pornography addiction. It is a 10 week program that includes a workbook, group and individual meetings (also included is a parent seminar that will help parents know how to support their teen's recovery).
