Alexander Beznes, LCSW

“My approach to the therapeutic process is to provide a genuine and validating atmosphere in which you can freely express your feelings and get in touch with your needs. In a collaborative and exploratory style, we’ll work through familiar roles and patterns in your life that lead to you feeling frustrated and unfulfilled. 

My hope is that you’ll find therapy to be a great way to learn how to approach situations and cope with stressors in healthier ways as well as discover new ways of being that improve your self-esteem, relationships, and wellbeing!”

I have extensive history working with people who come from a variety of different backgrounds and situations. I specialize in helping people with self-esteem and identity issues that could be stemming from unresolved trauma, bullying, or unhealthy family dynamics. I also specialize in helping people resolve relationship difficulties revolving around unmet needs, conflict, isolation, and alienation. I also have an interest in helping people establish a healthy work-life balance and resolve existential uncertainty related to their career and future.

The following are a few of my specialties (this list is not all-inclusive):

  • Anxiety

  • Anger

  • Substance Abuse

  • Life Transitions

  • Depression

  • Relationship Difficulties

  • Self-Esteem

If I have never been to therapy before, what should I expect? How do I know if I should go, and how do I start?

I start each new relationship by exploring your expectations for therapy in order to open up dialogue about your individual needs and lay the groundwork for a mutual and trusting relationship. I want to collaborate and come to an understanding about what does and doesn’t feel helpful within our relationship. If you’re wondering if you should start therapy, you’re probably in touch with a part of yourself that wants life to be better. It can start with a short conversation over the phone to get a sense of relief from feeling heard and understood.
