Alex Figueroa


Alex Figueroa is a mental health therapist who joined Nourishing Hope in March 2024. She graduated from Adler University with her master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling, along with a certification in Alcohol and Drug Counseling. Her clinical experience involves providing counseling to adults at a substance use addiction recovery center. While Alex no longer focuses on substance use treatment, her clinical interests include mindfulness and somatic techniques, harm-reduction, self-compassion, and inclusive and affirming care. She views therapy as an opportunity for clients to engage in self-discovery and healing by way of a trusting relationship with their counselor and themselves.

Alex was born and raised in Chicago. She loves exploring the city’s coffee and food scene, taking film photos, cooking new recipes, and sunbathing with her pug.
