Rebecca Alexander, LCSW, MPH, is a psychodynamic psychotherapist specializing in individual, couples and family therapy. I currently maintain a private practice in Manhattan.
With over 9 years of experience as an individual, couples, and family therapist, I am a graduate of the American Institute for Psychoanalysis specializing in psychodynamic psychotherapy. I am currently serving as a private practitioner working with a broad spectrum of clients. Among my areas of expertise are: depression and anxiety, eating disorders, obsessive compulsive disorder, relationship issues, family problems, divorce, job stress, disability, and chronic illness.
I am an interactive, solution-focused therapist. My therapeutic approach is to provide support and practical feedback to help clients effectively address personal life challenges. I integrate complementary methodologies and techniques to offer a highly personalized approach tailored to each client. With compassion and understanding, I work with individuals to help them build on their strengths and attain the personal growth they are committed to accomplishing.
