    Alex J. Chase, M.Ed., LCPC/CEO

    Gottman Approved MemberI am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor and have been working in the mental health field for over 20 years. I am licensed in Texas (LPC #77074) and Kansas (LCPC #03483). 

    I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology/Sociology in 2003 from the University of Houston. I returned to the same university to continue my graduate school work and graduated with my M.Ed. in Counseling Psychology in 2011. I am currently working toward my PhD in Counseling Education and Supervision at Antioch University.  

    My clinical experience includes: private practice, inpatient psychiatric facility, Partial Hospitalization and Intensive Outpatient facilities (PHP/IOP), a correctional facility, government agency caseworker and several community agencies/organizations including: Montrose Center, HAWC, AVDA, The Shape of Behavior, and the TX School for the Deaf. I have also worked as a contractor to provide court-ordered interventions including: Parenting, Substance Abuse, BIPP, and Anger Management groups. I have been in private practice since 2016 and co-founded New Focus Counseling Alliance, Inc. in 2019. My experience has given me an amazing opportunity to work with individuals, couples, families, and groups who have a variety of diagnoses and levels of functioning.

    I have a passion for working with clients who are a part of the LGBTQIA+ community. I specialize in gender identity, sexual orientation, intimate partner/relationship issues, family issues (family of origin, blended, chosen families), mood disorders (anxiety, depression), life transitions, elevating self-esteem, stress management, trauma/PTSD, and learning more effective coping skills.

    I utilize a variety of therapeutic approaches and techniques that are highly personalized to fit the individual needs of each client to address your own personal life challenges and reach your individualized goals. My clinical approach is client-centered, strengths-based and includes: CBT, family systems, DBT, holistic, humanistic, Gottman (for couples), narrative therapy, cognitive therapy, and solution-focused.

    I have found that a critical factor in therapeutic outcomes lies in the relationship and rapport you have with your therapist. I pride myself on my ability to create a supportive and trusting therapeutic relationship with compassionate and unbiased understanding. I strive to create a foundation that provides a safe, non-judgmental environment so that personal exploration, reflection, growth, and positive changes can occur.

    We will start from where you are right now and I am committed to fully understand your internal experience, life history, patterns, and current struggles leading up to today. It would be a privilege to assist you in recognizing your innate ability, build on your strengths, process the past, and provide you with practical feedback and new skills you can utilize in the present and future. I can help you learn self-awareness, find purpose and meaning, identify triggers and patterns, explore behavioral responses and develop effective coping skills.

    I am licensed in both Texas and Kansas and offer telehealth statewide for both states. I see clients in person in the Wichita area of Kansas. 

    I look forward to working with you!
