Life Transitions

Our lives are continually in transition from one point to another. Sometimes these transitions are exciting and anticipated, other times they can become problematic because they are new or unexpected and we are not sure what steps need to be taken. Counseling can help you understand the nature of your own personal transition and how to manage it.

I provide counseling for those who are seeking a journey of discovery. Often we find ourselves in a place where we do not want to be and we are not sure where we can turn for help. It is at these troubling times that we seek for guidance and assistance. If you would like to start down a road of personal discovery and make positive changes in your life, contact me now to begin a new chapter in your life.

My counseling style is warm, genuine, and interactive. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion.

Testimonials

  • I have been working with Alex for roughly 6 months and he has truly helped me with his counseling. Not only has he given me advice for various situations in my life, but has given me the tools to handle them myself. I cannot recommend him enough for his work and ability to make you feel comfortable in the environment. Not only has he helped me, but he seems to genuinely care for each person he sees and always remembers every single detail from each session. I would highly suggest having a session with him for your counseling needs and I can promise you will not be disappointed.
