Hi there my name is Dr. Alex and I am a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor (LPCC), with doctorate level training in Professional Psychology. I began working in the field with a degree and board-certification in Music Therapy, and I have an extensive background working with children, adolescents and families in New Mexico.
The Center for Life Changes is a new venture here in Albuquerque to serve the Albuquerque metro area. I treat people by assisting them in exploring issues and challenges affecting their mental health and overall wellness. I have over 20 years of experience in the mental health field and am fluent in Spanish. Using a holistic approach in treating individuals and families, I draw from a Psychodynamic and Humanistic background while specializing in Music Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) to meet the specific needs individual and families.
Jean Ramsey, MA, LPCC
Hello, my name is Jean Ramsey and I look forward to working with you. I am a licensed clinical mental health counselor in New Mexico. I am also certified by the National Board of Certified Counselors.
Through struggles to adjust to the many changes in my own life, I have learned compassion and practical ways to help others deal effectively with change and develop resiliency. In my over 20 years as a counselor, I have had the great fortune to work with many different ages, cultures and life issues. I have experience working with people dealing with depression, anxiety, grief, trauma, addiction, parenting and relationship issues as well as work and life dissatisfaction among other issues. My role as a helper is very important to me and I am always humbled when people sit before me and reveal their vulnerable selves. I find so much joy in watching others shed their pain and move forward.
I view counseling as an interactive process that requires me to learn how to best help you. I will strive to help you walk away from a session with me feeling more understanding and compassion for yourself and knowing that you have participated in forming a plan for our work together and concrete steps to take before the next session.
I have training in and utilize techniques from EMDR, CBT, Mindfulness, DBT, Brainspotting, Solution-Focused, as well as Motivational and Coaching approaches. The main focus of my training over the past several years has been on trauma treatment and I find those techniques helpful for most of the people I serve. I encourage people I work with to understand their mental health in the greater context of their overall health and well-being and make sustainable changes to benefit the whole person. If you feel that I would be a good fit for you or a good referral source for someone you are working with, please contact me.
