Dr. Alex Kohl

(PhD, LPC)

About Me

Hello, my name is Dr. Alex Kohl and I have 10+ years experience as a therapist working with a wide variety of mental health issues, such as depression, anxiety, addiction, bipolar disorder, low self-esteem/self-worth, self-harm behaviors, loss/grief, life transitions, and trauma. I strive to create a warm and welcoming environment so my clients feel safe and heard while discussing difficult issues.

I take a flexible and integrative approach using the biopsychosocial model to meet the specific needs of my clients. I practice client-centered, systemic, and emotion-focused therapies, and will often include other theoretical orientations, such as CBT, ACT, and DBT. I also have extensive training in neuropsychology and neuroscience and incorporate education about the brain-behavior relationship to help with treatment.

My primary focus is you. Choosing to obtain therapy services is a healthy and proactive decision that I would be honored to take part in with you. Everyone is different, and those differences are what make us unique. My goal is to develop a strong therapeutic relationship with you so that we can explore those differences and enable you to grow and change in a positive direction. Therapy is useful for those in crisis, as well as those experiencing daily life struggles, and I will do everything I can to help you develop and achieve your goals in therapy.

Written by M.I. on Apr 17, 2018 after counseling with Alex for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship, intimacy-related, self esteem, and anger

I've been with Alex for almost 3 month now. Having him as my therapist has been life-changing. He's attentive, supportive, and is a really good listener. I've been through so much since I started therapy and Alex has really helped see me through and helped me come out even stronger every single time. He guides me through situations but is always sure to let me make my own decisions. He is also quick to remind me that all the progress I've made is due to my conscious efforts to get better. I am so incredibly grateful that I was matched with him and that he agreed to take on my case.

I’ve had two different therapists in my life before. They were already good enough for me, but when I met Dr. Kohl it feels as if my previous therapists were not as experienced and knowledge as Dr. Kohl. I find him insightful and he “gets” me.

Dr. Kohl is understanding, empathetic and relates to your struggles and concerns. Couldn’t have asked for a better therapist to help with my issues during my time of need. He’s been very helpful and recommend him to anyone going through a super difficult time.

Alex is a good listener. He understands how to make me feel better. He recommends strategies to handle my situation. He keeps encouraging me to move on when I get lost and frustrated with what I have been through.

Dr. Kohl is a great counselor - he has provided great insight into some of the issues that I struggle with and he is giving me great strategies to cope with and rise above the depression I am experiencing.

I’ve been working with Dr. Kohl for a few months now. I’d describe him as helpful, professional, flexible and genuine. I enjoy the sessions a lot, and feel that I have come far from how I felt when we started.

Dr. Kohl is a great therapist. He makes you feel like you're talking to an old friend and that there is no subject that is out-of-bounds. He is very supportive, positive, and encouraging, and he offers not only advice but tools you can use to progress and get better. I would happily recommend Dr. Kohl to anyone who is looking to make positive changes in their life.

Written by D.A. on Jan 05, 2018 after counseling with Alex for 3 weeks on issues concerning addictions, and intimacy-related

I think Alex understood my needs early on, and has catered his style to allow me to open up. I've been battling an addiction that brings me great shame, and I am comfortable speaking about it electronically, but saying things out loud is nearly impossible for me. I send him almost daily check in messages to tell him how I'm feeling, and he always replies promptly - even during weekends and holidays when I tell him he doesn't have to!!!

Dr. Kohl has been fantastic he has listened and been patient and understanding with me and my unique situation. He has been very supportive even during the holiday season. I am very happy that I went with this service even with being a UK citizen because the flexibility of this service has been perfect with my shift work.

When I came here, I was lost and I was not sure if it was easy for anyone to soothe me with just messages. Dr. Kohl made me feel that I came to right place to get help. I really appreciate and am grateful for his patience, his attentiveness to every single word written, his ability to reading between the lines and also his sensitivity towards my issues while being professional, patient and kind at all times. He has been responding in a timely fashion, supporting me and helping me understand myself in detail and making me comfortable to be able to share more about myself. This had been my first experience in counseling and he has made me feel that my decision was right and I think I will stick to this. Within 2 weeks of us talking, he already has helped me feel hopeful about how things will be better in future. I would definitely recommend him to anyone seeking help. I can't imagine that counseling can even become more soothing than with Dr.Kohl.

Dr. Kohl is amazing! I've struggled with so many thoughts in my head that for all of my adult life, I just wasn't comfortable going through traditional therapy in the traditional settings. Maybe I just wasn't mentally ready, but finding this app encouraged me to get help now. Using this app and being connected to Dr. Kohl has changed my life and set me on a clear path in life. I highly recommend this app and my Doctor. Dr. Kohl.

Written by M.A. on Oct 04, 2017 after counseling with Alex for 2 days on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship, and trauma and abuse

I have been seeking therapists several times growing up and also in my adult life. I liked only few of them because of different approach and techniques that wouldn't really work with me. But then I was match with Dr Alex Kohl. I would describe him as a very patient person, compassionate , calming and AVAILABLE.
What I like the most about him is that he is not only listening to you and letting you vent, we all have friends that can listen to us. Dr Alex listens, interacts, and he is extremely empathic and gives me all the tools that I need to help me deal with different problems I have in different avenues in my life. He is by far the best therapist I have had so far and I am no longer planning of cancelling my membership and this is totally because of the great help he is bringing me.
