Alex Romen

Therapist LMSW

Alex rejects the outdated notion that therapy is for the weak. Rather, seeking help is a form of (and a source of) strength. Therapy is a way to obtain the skills needed to effectively function in society, regulate emotions, improve self-esteem, and cope with life’s stressors.

Alex utilizes Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) to work with clients experiencing depression, anxiety, anger, obsessions, and PTSD.  Whether it is an inability to shake the blues, difficulty controlling one’s temper, or improving one’s ability to remain calm when experiencing stressful situations or life events, Alex works with each client to learn root causes and triggers and develop the tools to improve their coping mechanisms and quality of life. Alex also has a passion for working with parents to develop the essential skills and tools that go into parenthood and raising children.

Alex’s treatment approach involves exploring the origins of thoughts (both rational and irrational), and how individuals process information and view the world. As his clients begin to better understand how their thoughts influence their behavior, Alex provides them with the tools to modify harmful thinking patterns, and to develop more positive ways of processing information.

Alex understands that, at times, pain and change are inevitable parts of life. When Clients come to Alex with these challenges, he provides them with the tools to process their emotions, manage their stress, restructure their thinking patterns, or simply explore new ways to cope with depression and anxiety.

Alex received a Master’s in Social Work from Arizona State University in 2006 and a Master’s in Public Administration from Grand Canyon University in October 2018.  He speaks English and Spanish.
