My Approach to Helping

Are you tired of letting fear, anxiety and insecurity intrude in your life? Do you often feel alone? Maybe you are struggling with a specific issue, or just simply want to grow and improve. Whatever brought you here, please use this page andor my website ( to help you decide if it makes sense to call me. My name is Dr. Alexander Alperin and I believe we can create a partnership that can help you achieve your goals. I work with adolescents, adults, and couples who suffer from depression, anxiety, and numerous other conditions.

Many of my clients have felt pleased with our work together, even after having expressed doubts about therapy (including those with a history of unsuccessful therapeutic experiences). Through the creation of an open, non-judgmental, and trusting relationship, my goal is to help you feel comfortable sharing your thoughts and feelings.

What you tell me will remain confidential. Please call for a free phone consultation.

More Info About My Practice

Education and Experience:

I received my B.A. from Rutgers College and my Masters (Psy.M.) and Doctoral (Psy.D.) degrees from the Graduate School of Applied and Professional Psychology (GSAPP) at Rutgers University.

At GSAPP, I work as an Assistant Research Professor and supervise and teach psychology doctoral candidates. I am a licensed psychologist in New Jersey (License # 6064) and New York (License # 022823-1). I have been trained in psychoanalytically oriented psychotherapy as well as cognitive behavioral therapy.

Awards and Honors:

While a doctoral candidate, I received awards for my compassion, empathy, and patience in my work with adolescents. Although I continue to work with adolescents, I have received extensive training in individual and couples therapy with adults.

My many accomplishments include:

-A certificate in Psychoanalytically Oriented Psychotherapy from the New Jersey Institute for Training in Psychoanalysis.
-A certificate in Evidence-Based Approaches to Addiction Treatment from the Center for Motivation and Change.
-The Robert D. Weitz Award for having been an outstanding doctoral candidate at GSAPP.
-The Michael Fowlin Fellowship for my work with adolescents at GSAPP.
-Numerous professional publications.
-Numerous professional presentations (primarily on psychological trauma), both nationally (e.g., APA 2020 conference, NASP 2020 conference) and locally (e.g., Rutgers Continuing Education Program).
