In what ways does your personality influence your approach to therapy?

I believe that being genuine is one of the most important parts of therapy. You are trusting me with some of the most vulnerable parts of yourself, I never want there to be a question as to what I am thinking or feeling with you. I do my best to always be transparent and honest, both in my personal life and with my patients, and encourage you to let me know if I'm not meeting your needs or am doing something you don't like. We're in this together!

Work History

My name is Alex Valentine and for over fifteen years I have been working as a mental health counselor, assisting people throughout New York City with improving their wellness, increasing their self-understanding, and meeting personal goals. By getting this far you have already demonstrated an interest in taking better care of yourself, and that step alone should be celebrated. I am deeply passionate about the power and benefit of therapy, and have seen it work countless times to bring comfort, stability, peace, and growth to so many, including myself. Through forming a trusting and collaborative relationship with a counselor, therapy can provide you with insight into how past events have shaped your present, with tools that help relieve you from negative patterns or emotions, and with confidence to move forward and live an empowered, healthy life. I am a firm believer that every individual should be treated with compassion and empathy, and that strength is at the root of every struggle. I have experience working with individuals struggling with anxiety, depression, substance use, eating disorders, relationship struggles and family discord, self-esteem and self-compassion, life transitions, grief and bereavement, and trauma. I approach everyone I work with individually, learning your story and recognizing what style would best fit your needs. I consider myself a psychodynamic clinician, but also have experience with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, and Person-Centered therapy, all conducted through a trauma-informed lens. I look forward to meeting and working with you!
