Alexandra "Allie" Hale, LPC Associate

Supervised by Lynne Silver, LPC

Senior Counselor

Welcome, I am proud that you are here and willing to begin (or continue) your healing journey. I am always humbled and honored to know those willing to commit to the challenging yet transforming work of therapy. There is immense healing power in connection. I believe you deserve to know and experience the safe and supportive space of the therapeutic relationship. 

My person-centered and integrative approach stems from the belief that you hold the power to heal yourself from the inside out. Through empathy, openness and curiosity towards your internal landscape you will learn to engage and integrate all layers of yourself. In this space, you create the possibility for growth, healing and enrichment in your relationships, including the relationship with yourself. My goal is to serve as your support and guide in becoming an expert of your internal world. 

I work with both individuals and couple’s, dealing with stress, trauma, anxiety, depression, life transitions, family of origin issues and relational concerns. In our work together, I offer a grounding, warm and authentic presence. I strive to provide a container for you to navigate life’s many challenges. I aim to be a witness of your story so that together we may hone awareness on the root of emotional problems and presenting issues. We will work collaboratively to discover patterns of behavior or thought that no longer serve you. As well as focus on areas in your life that are working well, to identify positive resources and an increased sense of agency. 

At a young age I was introduced to a multitude of holistic health practices which developed into a life-long passion for the healing arts and mind-body connection. I hold a Bachelors of Science in Kinesiology (the study of human body movement) and a decade of experience working as a wellness retreat coordinator and a yoga instructor. My understanding of healing as a blending of both art and science transitioned me into the field of counseling. My passion for the mind-body connection informs my somatic approach to therapy in which I use breath work, mindfulness practices, interoceptive techniques, neurobiology and knowledge of the nervous system to support increased emotional regulation and embodiment. Once we are able to cultivate emotional regulation and emotional embodiment we are able to create the necessary changes for healing and growth. 

I completed my Master’s in Counseling Psychology at Pacifica Graduate Institute with an emphasis in professional clinical counseling, marriage and family therapy and depth psychology. Through my graduate thesis research, I researched and reflected on the healing potential of somatic awareness, movement, dreams, images, and symbols to help manage and navigate internal conflicts and create more meaning and vitality in one’s life. 

I spent the majority of my childhood in London, England before moving to Houston, Texas. In 2016 I moved to Austin, where I love to spend as much time in nature as I can— especially in the water. In my free time I enjoy being active, usually through a walk, run, bike ride or yoga practice. I also love to cook, read, travel and spend time with my husband, family and friends.
