Alexandra Fisher serves as the director of psychology services for the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit at Dell Children’s Medical Center and is a clinical assistant professor in the Department of Psychiatry at Dell Medical School. As a licensed child and adolescent clinical psychologist, she specializes in the evaluation and treatment of children, adolescents and families. Fisher has been trained in evidence-based interventions including CBT, TF-CBT, PCIT, exposure therapy and motivational interviewing. Fisher also has extensive experience in family therapy using structural-, strategic- and solution-focused approaches. Fisher provides academic instruction and clinical supervision to graduate students and psychology interns.

Fisher received her Ph.D. in school psychology from The University of Texas at Austin. As a graduate student, she was a recipient of a HRSA-funded Graduate Psychology Education Program (GPEP) fellowship and has received extensive training in integrated behavioral health care. That experience was integral in providing her with the skills and theoretical background required to work within an interdisciplinary medical team. Fisher completed an internship in pediatric and child clinical psychology at Texas Child Study Center and a postdoctoral fellowship in clinical psychology and research in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit at Dell Children’s Medical Center.

Fisher’s research interests have focused on using a risk and resiliency paradigm to identify risk factors that might put patients and families at risk for developing mental health outcomes secondary to medical events, as well as protective factors that may mitigate the negative effects.
