Alexander (Alex) Morelli

Alexander Morelli is a Mental Health Counselor (MHC) in the state of New York. A native of San Diego, CA, he moved to Buffalo to attend the University at Buffalo for his MS in Mental Health Counseling. In addition to being a permitted counselor, he is also a Certified Personal Trainer (CPT) that has been in the health and fitness industry for over 12 years. Having been raised in a gym environment, he realized that exercise was as much mental as it was physical. ​After years of training and aiding others in their fitness goals, Alex decided to return to school and pursue his counseling credentials to combine his two passions: mental health and exercise. 


By recognizing the relationship between the mind and the body, he is able to assist clients in treating their symptoms of depression and anxiety with exercises, physical activities, and programs tailored to their individual needs and desires. His programming incorporates mental health practices into his training regimens. Along with training others and helping them reach their personal goals, he competes in bodybuilding and has won the 2015 Southern California INBA/PNBA, Natural Bodybuilding Competition.
