About Dr. Alex

My name is Dr. Alex Gard, and as a Marriage and Family Therapist, I help women strengthen their relationships, reconnect with themselves and claim the joy they deserve. Through talk therapy, my clients develop the tools necessary to manage relationships where they feel stuck, stagnant or unhappy. My mission is to inspire women to be their best selves, so that they thrive in their personal, social and professional lives.

What’s my story and how did I develop a passion to help women claim their joy?
I was born to an amazing mother who was only 18 years old when she gave birth to me. She and my very remarkable grandmother instilled in me the values of being a strong and resilient woman, no matter the circumstances. When I was just six years old, my mother remarried, and I was lucky enough to inherit an exceptional father. I grew up bearing witness to his unconditional love for my mother. Even to this day, I don’t think he realizes what a gift he has been to me. Together, my parents (patiently) taught me how to be fiercely/profoundly present in life. I was not an easy child, and for sure, was a challenging teenager. Over the course of my life, my parents worked tirelessly to help me believe in myself. But I lacked self-esteem and it wasn’t until my young adulthood that I realized that they were right; I could persevere, I was strong, and I could really do anything.

That is why I’m drawn to helping young girls and women. I know that when we believe in ourselves, we can change the trajectory of our lives. My passion and purpose is to help women thrive and lead lives they are truly proud of. I have built a practice that allows women to claim their joy. Why not make today, the first day of the rest of your life? You deserve it!
