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 From my perspective, the goal of therapy is to let go of outdated ways of living that make you feel stuck and and in survival mode, and to to live with freedom, joy, and most of all to thrive.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.

He gets straight to the point and has a vast knowledge of how to progress things and people
I can confirm all the other positive reviews of Alex. This guy is an absolute legend.
He is patient, kind and caring, and he is also very direct and to-the-point. The latter can be a little intimidating if you aren’t used to it but trust me it’s worth it, cause he’s able to get down to the truth very quickly. He has a wild ability to read you like a book and after just a few sessions you start to wonder how the heck he knows you so well. Truth is, he is just damn good at what he does.
My favorite thing about Alex is he doesn’t focus on finding an answer to “what’s wrong with you”, instead through a mix of a shift in thinking, some meditative practices, and some ah-ha moments you’ll suddenly find yourself realizing that there actually isn’t anything wrong with you at all. Because the real you is much deeper than the you you’ve come to believe is you. At least that’s what he did for me.
I was really feeling hopelessly weighed down by overwhelming darkness and emptiness before I came to meet Alex through BetterHelp. The tools Alex gave me to shift the way I view the world and myself has given me what I need to live a much more fulfilling and happy life. Very thankful for him.
I have been working with Alex for a few weeks and it’s clear to say we’ve established the areas we are working on and understanding the root of things. I’ve been in therapy before, but Alex’s approach is much more hands on in terms on advising me on books to read, sending me articles and speaking via video call. I’m feeling confident that with his help it’ll start having a more positive effect on my day to day life.
I have had a total of 2 sessions with Alex. We are still getting to the cause of my issues, but so far it's going well.
Alex has been super great. He helps not only with addressing my concerns, but in understanding the deeper connection behind them. He listens and navigates me through the maze that is in my head. I am now much happier and more satisfied with my life for it.
I truly appreciate the value he attributes to everything I say! I relax and become less defensive about holding the thoughts and feelings I do and begin to accept myself. I look forward to my journey with him as my counselor.
Alex is a really great mentor. I have been in therapy for 6 years now but if I met Alex 6 years ago my therapy would of been a breeze! In the past month and a half I have gone through so much self understanding that I’m ready to go off my medicine and start living my life again. He has made such a difference in my life I can’t thank him enough. I look forward to the next few sessions and being able to once again be happy. Thanks Alex!
I am so glad I was with Alex. He’s smart and experienced, and was able to size up our situation immediately and offer practical and useful solutions. He made a big difference.
Alex is an expert that provides real well rounded advices. He’s pleasant to talk to, accommodating, and very attentive to emotional and behavioral details. He’s also a bright sided person who always brings your attention to different views on the spectrum. I’d definitely recommend Alex for everyone.
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, is great person, I took his advice to heart and it helped in many ways.
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!
Alex really helps me very much. He understand my problems, gives me very honest and helpful advice and helps me to find myself. I strongly recommend working with him!
He helped me a lot and thanks to him I feel better now.
Both efficient and relaxed. Has helpful input.
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.
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
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!
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.
