Dr. Alex Bloom is a licensed psychologist and has been working with clients for well over a decade. He obtained his Psy.D. in Clinical Psychology from Pacific University and specializes in both anxiety and mindfulness meditation. He has conducted and presented research on mindfulness and lectured both nationally and internationally on the subject. In addition to seeing a full caseload, he runs a number of weekly psychoeducation groups, which include such diverse topics as chronic pain, positive psychology and the science of happiness, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, and mindfulness meditation. Alex is an adjunct professor at Pacific U and is a regular guest on a local ABC morning show, discussing how to apply science-based principles into our daily lives. He has been following the QAnon movement since the very beginning and is the top poster in Jordan Sather's Destroying the Illusion Facebook group. Over the past several years, he has taken a particular affinity to memes and has started a number of offshoot groups focusing on various meme subjects. Alex is currently finishing an online course and subsequent book on bridging psychology and spirituality together in a unique and accessible way. The processes he describes will pave the way for many to have their own ineffable experiences with the Divine by following simple, yet cutting-edge, principles.
