About Alex

Alex is passionate about healthy relationships! In his personal and professional life, he strives to speak and teach the language of experiencing connection and live and model a lifestyle of intimacy.

Personally, Alex is in constant awareness of improving (and of course, fully enjoying!) his relationships with his wife and son. His feelings of connection to his wife, Claudia, in multiple ways, inspired him to write 40 Forms of Intimacy.

His desire to help couples recognize the many ways they (already and can) feel close to each other and develop a deeper intimacy also prompted this writing.

Professionally, Alex holds thousands of hours of experience counseling individuals and couples on a variety of life issues. He earned a master’s degree (with honors) in Clinical Mental Health Counseling and holds a bachelor's degree (graduating Summa Cum Laude) with a dual major in Psychology and Business Administration.
