Alejandro Lopez Jr., M.A, LPC, NCC
TF-CBT® Certified

HI! My name is Alejandro Lopez and I want to welcome you to my trauma-focused counseling practice, Healing Minds Behavioral Health. Before we move on, here is a little about me and my qualifications.

I hold a license to practice professional mental health counseling in the state of Texas (#77229) as a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) with board certification (#857566) as a National Certified Counselor (NCC) by the National Board for Certified Counselors (NBCC). I earned a Master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling at Texas A&M University-San Antonio in 2016, a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology at Texas A&M University-San Antonio in 2012, and an Associate’s degree in Psychology at Palo Alto College in 2008.

I am certified in Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), a research-based treatment for children and adolescents, along with their parents/caregivers, who have been impacted by trauma. I am also certified in PC-CARE, a brief positive parenting intervention designed to assist caregivers in managing difficult behavior in children who may have experienced trauma. In addition to these modalities, I incorporate elements of Play Therapy, Sand Tray Therapy, Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy, Behavior Modification, Parent Coaching, and Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy (DDP) as therapeutic interventions in my work with clients. My specialty is in working with families and treating the effects and symptoms of trauma in children and adolescents ages 4 to 17.

I gained my clinical experience while working at various child-centered non-profit settings in San Antonio, TX, including residential treatment facilities for children, children’s homes, Children's Advocacy Centers, and children’s outpatient psychiatric treatment centers.

I believe that most children do well when they can and want to overcome their problems, but they may not know how. My goal is to discover, with the child and their family, their triggers and pathways that are causing issues and preventing them from getting to where they want to be. I am interested in breaking down problems and finding the root and source of where/why the disconnection exists so that children can get their underlying needs met.

I am always mindful of the importance of how mental, behavioral, emotional, physical, and spiritual health interplay with our functioning as human beings. My passion is helping my clients in their journey to becoming their best selves and providing them with resources to thrive and grow.

If you believe I can help you and your child, please reach out. It will be my pleasure and honor to join you in your life journey.
