Alexander Prince, LPC, CAC II

Alex Prince is a licensed psychotherapist with years of experience working with multiple modalities and diversity of clients from the smallest need to the most complicated. Alex has a history of taking clients others shy away from and believes that all clients should be treated according to the goals of the client, not the therapist. It is his determination that no personal beliefs can ever be used to turn away from someone willing to work through their issues. He has worked with hypnosis, mindfulness along with Cognitive Behavioral and other modalities to best serve each client in overcoming barriers to the goals they have set for themselves. Alex does not believe it should ever be the therapist that gives up on a client and utilizing coaching as well as therapy lets the client make the decision as to whether they are ready to end their treatment. Empathy and the ability to hear the needs of a client are tantamount to the holistic vision of treatment that Alex utilizes with his clients. At times Alex uses humor when appropriate to assist clients in learning to find the joy in their life even when facing difficult times. Alex has worked with groups, individuals, couples and families, children, adolescents and adults. The goal is the same for all the treatment settings and clients: guiding the clients through barriers that block what they want to have more of in their life. Alex has a history working in the creative arts and finds that it can sometimes help in situations where the feelings are not ready to be experienced without an avenue that feels safe. Alex has worked with most cultural groups and has experience working with LGBT issues. Working with mental health as it relates to substance abuse is also one of his specialties.

rwhelmed, anxious, and sometimes even hopeless during this pandemic. I found myself needing to take the leap and seek professional help and Alex has served as an amazing source of information and hope! His wealth of knowledge and years of experience have provided, even in a relatively short period of time, so many great tools and such insight. He is receptive and sensitive to your needs. While being a complete professional he also has the ability to connect with people in a personal and very genuine way. And perhaps his greatest skill is his ability to disarm and empower his clients with such great humor! A session doesn’t go by-regardless of how rough a time I may be having- where we don’t find something to laugh about. It’s such a great reminder that humor is such a real and powerful medicine! It’s truly been a blessing to find a counselor I feel so comfortable with and feel like step by step, week by week, I am making real progress. Thank you, Alex.
