Meet Your Counselor


Alex White

Alex White

(he / him / his)
Email:AWhite@sa.utah.edu

Hi, I'm Alex. I am the embedded counselor for the St. George Graduate Center. Please feel free to email me directly to schedule an intake appointment, or with any other questions or concerns: AWhite@sa.utah.edu.

Clinical Approach

I approach therapy with the innate belief in the strength and insight of the individuals who sit across from me. Although I may offer ideas, feedback, and resources, your voice is the most important one in the room. My hope in our time together is to empower that voice as a guide on your journey to healing, growth, and change. To this end, I draw on a relational, trauma-informed approach to counseling, while incorporating cognitive-behavioral, solution-focused, and mindfulness-based interventions to treatment. I also know that graduate school can present its own unique challenges, so I can also provide support in time management / organization, parent coaching, and self-compassion.

Education and Background

Originally from California, I pursued the majestic landscapes and open spaces of the Mountain West after completing my undergraduate education at Middlebury College in Vermont. Since then I have worked in residential, wilderness, and private practice therapeutic settings, eventually earning my Master’s Degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Prescott College (AZ).

Personal Interests

The natural world is my greatest teacher, guide, support, coping skill, and healing space. Whether hiking, biking, rock climbing, snowboarding, or simply sitting in the sun, my time in the outdoors is my most sacred.
