Alex McCandless, LPC (Temp.), SRAS
Counseling & Prevention Manager
Thank you for taking the time to investigate our services. If you are hurting and in need of healing, I respect and admire your courage in taking the step of seeking a counselor. Being fully known and fully accepted is the most basic of human needs. My mission and role as a therapist is to offer that unconditional acceptance and support. I would be honored to have the privilege of walking with you through the past and present trials of life. There are as many different approaches to counseling as there are people, but my method usually involves a focus on understanding and accepting our emotions as ways to live fully in a fallen world. We often avoid them or dismiss them as bad, but they each have a gift. I want to help you to reap the benefits of your emotions rather than be controlled by their impairments. I encourage a holistic approach that sees your spirit, mind, and body as a whole.
I currently hold a Master’s degree in professional counseling and am a supervised Licensed Professional Counselor in Tennessee (LPC, temp). I am a member of the Nashville Area Association of Christian Counselors and of the Tennessee Licensed Professional Counselors Association.
