Alexandria Price, MSW
As a Bay Area native, I am especially excited to be a part of the BACA team and to provide mental health services to youths and their families. I received my BA in Psychology from Stanford University and my Master of Social Welfare with a Concentration in Health and Mental Health from the UCLA Luskin School of Public Affairs. While pursuing my Master's degree, I completed internships counseling adults experiencing chronic mental illness as part of a community non-profit organization and providing care for children struggling with their mental health as part of a pediatric partial hospitalization program (PHP). My experience at the PHP furthered my belief in the importance of working collaboratively with parents, other caregivers, and the school system in the treatment process. Prior to my Master’s program, I managed the Neurodevelopment, Affect, and Psychopathology Lab at Stanford University where I coordinated a study examining the impact of early life stress on child development. My clinical interests include working with children and adolescents with mood, anxiety, and behavioral challenges, as well as assisting clients in developing and strengthening interpersonal skills and relationships. In my spare time I enjoy cooking, playing basketball, and spending time with family and friends.
