(LPC, EMDR)

About Me

Being a psychotherapist for over 25 years, I have had the honor and privilege of working with individuals, couples, and families providing holistic support for all of life’s challenges. I deeply love what I do and I bring all of my education, experience, and most of all compassion and understanding to help you understand yourself. From my perspective, the goal of therapy is to let go of outdated ways of living that make you feel stuck and and in survival mode, and to to live with freedom, joy, and most of all to thrive. My approach is holistic, in that everything that is happening in your life is seen as a doorway towards understanding yourself and ultimately healing what needs to be healed and to awaken the inner resources and capacities to life with exhuberance.
Throughout my life, I have continued to educate myself into the best practices for what you need. From a holistic perspective, we will explore body-mind-spirit to address each of the integrated systems. We all seek to thrive and that is my mission with you. I have been trained in Eastern and Western psychology and philosophy and integrate what you need. In addition, I have specialized in addiction and trauma treatment for the last 12 years and incorporate EMDR(eye Movement Desensitization and reprocesssing) as the cutting edge tool towards healing. I am also trained as a couples therapist and work with couples through all stages of relationship in helping them understand and heal themselves within the context of relationship. And finally, I am a yoga instructor and meditation teacher and I help guide others on their spiritual journey.
I look forward to taking the journey with YOU.

Written by N.A. on Jun 17, 2019 after counseling with Alex for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, and addictions

I liked Alex right away. He was direct and kind, which suits me well.

Alex has been the reflection through which I am better able to see myself. He doesn’t let me get away with excuses and is supportive without enabling. While we have just begun the therapeutic process, I believe his holistic perspective is exactly what I need to grow as an individual. I highly recommend him to anyone who needs to see themselves clearly and discover the negative patterns holding them back.

Alex allayed my fears and anxiety by explaining the cause of my symptoms to me. He was able to say what was medical and what was psychological. That way, I have been able to seek additional help for the medical and I am recovering better.

Alex's about me is a pretty apt description of the type of therapist he is. He is really well-versed in different traditions and I'm quite sure he is capable of helping anyone learn more about themselves and work constructively towards self-awareness. I've been through a few therapists in my life, and this was by far the deepest learning experience. Would highly recommend him to anyone with or without issues in their lives. That in mind, I would also like to put a special note for those who really desire to change the way they think and live and have a complicated way of thinking. This is the guy for you!

Both efficient and relaxed. Has helpful input.

Written by P.H. on Jan 02, 2019 after counseling with Alex for 2 weeks on issues concerning relationship issues

I've had three sessions with Alex so far and already he's helped me to uncover the source of what has caused me distress. I feel that with his help I'll be able to go resolve long held restrictive tendencies and I'm thankful for that.

Written by L.E. on Dec 17, 2018 after counseling with Alex for 2 weeks on issues concerning addictions

Alex is very helpful so far on all issues that have been brought to the table. He has been able to have me understand things with relative ease, relate much to my upbringing and carefully dissect the nature of many things I do, paradigms and so on. Looking forward to more help from Alex in the future

Written by R.E. on Dec 13, 2018 after counseling with Alex for 3 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, self esteem, and career difficulties

I am so grateful for Alex's help. He is honest and direct, sees through the cobwebs and gets right to the heart of things, unlike anyone I'd spoken to before. He has helped me to get out of a deep rut and move forward with a new perspective, which I can already see will allow me to shape my life for the better. Thank you!

Written by A.M. on Nov 14, 2018 after counseling with Alex for 1 week on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, and grief

Alex is an amazing man with an amazing soul.
He can help you in a very effective way. He gets straight to right point as he is very aware of your energy and on what you REALLY need.
So I tell you to really trust him and go for what he says.
Let him ''take the lead'' in his gentle way and you will get where you want to be.
