José Gbaba, MS Clinician- Alexandria

José Gbaba earned his Master’s in Mental and Clinical Health Counseling from Divine Mercy University. The program emphasizes the fundamental goodness and dignity of every human person, and the unity between faith, philosophy, and psychology in understanding and treating the whole person. He is a Resident in Counseling in the state of Virginia. The foundational understanding of the human person as the Imago Dei was an impetus for José to enter the counseling profession, as he desired to accompany individuals, couples, and families in their journey towards human flourishing and sanctity.

José is desirous of helping his clients find meaning, healing, and fulfillment through psychotherapy. He is very passionate about working with adolescents, young adults, elders, individuals, couples, and families. Having spent several years in formation as a Franciscan friar and seminarian, José has a profound love, appreciation, and understanding of the joys and difficulties in religious life and has a particular interest in working with clergy, religious, seminarians, those discerning religious life, and those who have discerned out of formation and are seeking out their next steps in life. He uses and combines a variety of counseling modalities to cater to the needs of each individual client. He sees the counselor as one who walks alongside the client in their search for Truth, Goodness, and Beauty in their journey towards a holistic integration of their humanity. He began working at Alpha Omega in 2024. José is open to speaking engagements.
