Meet Alex

Alexandra Boeving Allen, PhD

Alex has a private practice and was previously the director of psychosocial services in Oncology at Wake Forest University Medical Center/Brenner Children’s Hospital. 

Alex completed postdoctoral fellowships at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and Yale School of Public Health and has worked domestically and internationally with children and families.

Random thing about you? We have pet dogs, chickens, a fish, and even a snake! 

Superpower you’d like to have? Teleportation

Perfect Saturday? Early morning hike with kids and dogs, then browsing an independent bookstore with a great latte and no time constraints!
