Alexine Thompson

ICEEFT certified therapist, supervisor and trainer

I hold a Masters in Psychology from the University of Geneva and am a Psychologist FSP and a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in the state of California, USA, where I did most of my training. I work mostly with couples, but also with individuals and families to help them with relational issues.

For me, being a therapist is not just a job; it is a passion. I feel that my life's journey has lead me to where I am and I try to integrate it with the professional training and knowledge I have received. I know first hand how challenging being married and becoming a parent can be. My personal experience, along with my professional and academic training, has shaped the kind of therapist I have become. I am passionate about what I do and the services I offer are a reflection of that.
