Alexandria Ambrose Bio

Alexandria Ambrose, M.A.
Psychology Intern, Supervised by Kari Keller, PhD

Personal Statement:

I am very excited to be part of the SCS team at A&M. I was born and raised in California and have pursued my graduate studies all the way in New England… now I have found a new home in Bryan/College Station, TX for my doctoral internship. I feel passionate about working within a university setting. College can be awful and amazing at the very same time, and I like to emphasize that is completely okay. I like to create a space in therapy where you can be true to yourself and also open to new perspectives and emotions. On a more personal note, I thoroughly enjoy desserts, the company of my cat, and trips to the beach.  

Academic Training:

Psy.D., Clinical Psychology, University of Hartford (anticipated August 2019)

M.A., Clinical Psychology, University of Hartford, 2016

B.A., Cognitive Psychology, University of California, Irvine, 2012

Internship:

Student Counseling Services, Texas A&M University

Areas of Special Interest:

Transitional stress in college (e.g., independence, autonomy), health psychology, gender roles/dynamics, intersectional feminist perspectives, social justice, and identity development   

Theoretical Orientation:

I am a firm believer that one size most definitely does not fit all! I do work primarily within a developmental and psychodynamic framework with emphasis on interpersonal processing ALL through a multicultural lens. Basically, this means I work with individuals focusing on both the past and the present, highlighting ways in which important events and people have an effect on us… all with the understanding that we are first and foremost unique individuals whose identities play a major role in how we handle mental health in life.
