Alexandra "Allie" Hale, LPC Associate
Supervised by Lynne Silver, LPC
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.
In our work together, I offer a grounding, warm and authentic presence. My goal is to serve as your support and guide. To provide a container for you to navigate life’s many challenges. We will work collaboratively to discover patterns of behavior or thought that no longer serve you. 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.
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. I am passionate about the innate healing potential offered from working with somatic experiences, dreams, images, and symbols— all of which I believe help you to gain insight, shift your perspective and create more meaning and vitality in your life.
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 gained a deep awareness and understanding of the difficulties, as well as the healing potential, present in the journey of self-discovery.
I spent the majority of my childhood in London, England before moving to Houston, Texas. In 2016 I moved to Austin. You will find me spending my time outdoors as often as I can— especially in the water. I love to exercise through a walk, run, bike ride, or yoga practice. I enjoy spending time cooking, reading, learning (I am a student for life), and hanging out with my family and friends.
