Success occurs when

self-belief meets

commitment to your because

and the

relentless pursuit of betterment.

Belief + Because + Betterment = Success

Hey all, I'm Dr. Alex Thompson. 

I just missed the generation of introducing ourselves digitally, so this feels a bit new to me for someone who thrives on genuine, authentic connections. Speaking of, I want you to know first and foremost that developing a real and genuine relationship with you is what I find to be foundational in the process of change. Finding someone with whom we can push our comfort zone such that we give ourselves the opportunity to grow is imperative, and is who I strive to be for each person with whom I work.

I believe in your potential, and want to help you be your best self in whatever way is meaningful to you. I commit to holding strongly to the belief in your ability. I want you to know your because and will gladly help clarify that. And together, we will work to help you achieve betterment.

My philosophy stems from the process that helped me become a Division I scholar-athlete. I was fortunate to have people in my life that helped me deeply believe in my potential. I knew my because from the age of 9 -- I had fallen in love with the game and wanted to become a college basketball player. And year after year, holding strongly to my belief and fulfilling my because with hours of training on and off the court, I kept getting better. I surpassed those with more natural athleticism, height, or strength because of the commitment to this process. Not only did this process help me reach my dream of becoming a D1 basketball player, it has also been foundational in achieving my professional goals and becoming a better partner, daughter, and friend. And now, it's my mission in life to help you do the same -- to ingrain that process into every fiber of your being to help you become your best self. You deserve that opportunity and I want to help you see it through.


As a result of my personal experiences, and training to becoming a licensed psychologist with a focus area in sport psychology, my expertise is in working with those who identify as athletes and performers, as well as those who want to work on their relationships with food and body image. I have extensive experience working with those struggling with anxiety, depression, relational concerns, identity exploration, and other aspects of development. Please don't hesitate to contact me and we can see if we are a good fit to work together.
