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 (www.alperinpsychology.com) 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.
