Professional statement

Alex Ly is a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist based in Fremont, CA, offering both in-person and online sessions across California. He specializes in helping disconnected, anxious, and overwhelmed adults to heal and reconnect with themselves. Alex adopts a empathic approach focused on processing and healing the emotional pain and trauma that clients often try to escape. His therapy environment is characterized by curiosity, engagement, and a balance of being seen and challenged, facilitating transformative change.

His clients struggle with grappling with feelings of inadequacy and being overwhelmed. Alex helps them address the problems that come with the avoidance of intense emotions or over-reliance on rational solutions. Utilizing Brainspotting, he accesses the trauma stored in the body, offering a path to healing that extends beyond conventional talk therapy. This approach allows for significant transformations, enabling individuals to integrate and accept their emotions as natural parts of their existence.

The outcomes of therapy under Alex's guidance are profound, with clients experiencing true transformation. They learn to face rather than flee from their emotions, leading to a reconnection with themselves on a deeper level.

Those in search of deep, transformative therapy are encouraged to reach out to Alex Ly for a free 15-minute consultation, opening the door to healing and rediscovery.

Message to clients

You never feel like you are "good enough." You constantly feel disconnected, anxious, and overwhelmed by everything on your plate. As a result you try to deal with your feelings by fixing them, ignoring them, or solving them with logic. But it doesn't work anymore as your emotions too much to handle. You need a new way of living that does not consist of just running away from big feelings or being stuck in your head.

I can help. I'm a trauma therapist specializing in guiding disconnected, anxious, and overwhelmed adults reconnect with themselves and heal the parts that feel broken to them. I approach to therapy is centered processing and healing the painful feelings that you spend so much time running away from. As a therapist I am curious, engaging, and inquisitive. I create a safe space where you are seen and heard while still being challenges enough to reach the transformation and change you want.

Using Brainspotting, we'll delve into the deeper layers of trauma that reside within your body, offering a transformative approach to healing that transcends conventional talk therapy.

My clients get amazing results in therapy. Transformation is real, and you'll be able to reconnect and rediscover yourself in a whole new way. Big feelings will no longer be things that you run away from and instead become natural parts of your life.
