Alexandra J, Haselbeck, LCSW
Preferred Name: Alex
It’s my aim to support clients to feel understood and safe in exploring their challenges so they might access greater clarity of their true self. I believe this is achieved by creating a therapeutic space that allows for mutuality, collaboration and a sense of possibility. My approach to therapy is holistic, with a deep belief that to understand ourselves (and our emotional and mental challenges) most fully, we must explore the connection between mind, body and spirit.
Education & Experience
I’m a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in New York State. I obtained my Master in Social Work at Silberman School of Social Work at Hunter College, focusing on clinical social work and being trained through an anti-oppressive framework. I’ve since received postgraduate training in Internal Family Systems, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness-based practices and EMDR. Prior to my work in private practice settings, I have 10+ years experiences in various community mental health settings, with specialized focus in serving people in the LGBTQIA+ community, as well as those that have experienced serious mental illness, substance use disorders, trauma, sexual violence and homelessness. I have extensive experience in trauma-informed therapy, as well as in areas of anxiety, attachment issues and mood & personality disorders.
