Alex Smith, MA, LPC
Before joining the Catalyst Center, Alex was a Clinical Director at an inpatient and residential eating disorder treatment center. As a clinician who is recovered from an eating disorder herself, she believes that everyone has the capacity to heal and live the life they dream of living. Alex understands that the journey to recovery can be difficult and requires both support and skills. Her approach is collaborative and strengths-based. In addition to the importance of a supportive therapeutic relationship, Alex has found that Positive Psychology, ACT, CBT, and DBT are powerful tools in cultivating a life where you thrive, not simply survive. In addition to working with individuals, Alex often works with couples and parents whose relationships are affected by their loved one struggles.

Allison often incorporates both EMDR and Neurofeedback into client sessions, and is also part of The Catalyst Center’s PAT/KAP team. Allison believes that a supportive environment, both in therapy and at home, is critical to eating disorder recovery. In addition to supporting individuals, Allison often works with couples when one partner is suffering from an eating disroder. Other areas of interest include grief and loss, GLBTQ+, identity and life transitions.
