Our New Clinical Director – Alex Baird
We are pleased to announce that Alex Baird will take over the duties of Clinical Director on July 27, 2020. She will be taking over from Trevor Dahle, who has done an outstanding job and will be leaving to pursue his Ph.D. at Auburn University.
Alex, who holds a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Psychology and a Master of Arts in Marriage and Family Therapy, joined the HOPE Group from Discovery Ranch as a therapist in September, 2019. Alex quickly distinguished herself as an outstanding therapist who cares deeply for our girls and their futures. Alex also began implementing new and innovative therapeutic techniques into the program that have proven very beneficial our girls.
The HOPE Group received applications from outstanding candidates from all over the country for this position. It was apparent early on in the process that Alex stood above the rest and, in this position, could help HOPE further develop HOPE’s therapeutic offerings, including preparing to help girls as young as 8 years of age.
Alex will oversee and train therapists working in Havenwood Academy, Zion Hills Academy and Eagle’s Rest Ranch when it opens in a couple of months. She will also work closely with the education and residential departments to insure that all areas of the program are providing the very best therapeutic opportunities available for our girls. We expect great things with Alex as Clinical Director. Congratulations Alex!
“Over the course of the time I’ve been with the Hope Group, I have developed a strong love and passion for the population we work with. I am thrilled to get the opportunity use my knowledge, experience, and talents to take this program to the next level and offer our girls the best, most clinically sound treatment that they can get.”Alex Baird
