Andrea M. Alvarez M.Ed, LPC-S, NCC
Owner, Executive Director
We provide outpatient therapy for children, adolescents, and adults. We have worked closely with some of the psychiatrists in SA when needed to ensure high level care. We treated co-morbid disorders as well. Further, we have gone through certifications for PTSD in order to best serve our clients. 80% of our practice services OCD and Anxiety related disorders.
I used evidenced base practices for each disorder. I am trained by IOCDF and was first clinician in SA to become certified in Adult and Pediatric OCD treatment and first certified in treatment of BFRB’s by the TLC Foundation, BFRB.org.
I have been treating OCD behaviors since 2017. I have presented in symposiums with ERC/ Pathlight and virtually for OCD Texas, and affiliate of IOCDF. I have trained my associates in these evidenced based practices in order to serve a larger population. I had been under supervision of Dr. Alec Pollard.
We worked with any culture and take this into part of our treatment as needed. We have presented on multicultural considerations in treatment for OCD Texas as well.
I have been attending IOCDF conferences every year since 2017 and have made sure to attend every training possible when it comes to multicultural considerations to best serve the community I have grown up in.
