This becomes a problem when we try to be productive in work, in relationships, and all around in our everyday lives.

Was referred to him by several physicians. It was interesting that they all wanted me to see the same doctor. He has been great and is very skilled. I look forward to each visit and feel my problems are resolving rapidly.
Dr. A has been an incredible catalyst to my progress in treatment. I am so happy he introduced me to neurofeedback and mindfulness as both have really improved the quality of my life. Thanks for everything, doc.
Couldn't be happier. Great doctor!
I'm never the type of person to write reviews but I feel compelled to write one for Dr. Alvarado. My teenage son has been to a number of psychologists the past few years and has always been against therapy. Never has he connected with someone as much as he has connected with Dr. Alvarado. I've seen changes in him that I wouldn't have believed last year. He even looks forward to his sessions. Thank you Dr. Alvarado.
During the time I've seen Alex I've reached goals I never thought were possible in both my work and personal life. With the tools I've learned from our time together, as well as his motivation and compassion, I feel like my best self. I used to get very hung up on minor details, but Alex has been amazing at helping me see the bigger picture.
