"My name is Alexander Warnow and I am a Licensed Psychotherapist practicing in Alameda, CA. I work primarily with adults, teens, and couples. I help them to live more fulfilling, connected lives. Often what brings someone to seek therapy is a chronic issue that has reached a crisis point: anger, depression, anxiety, self-worth, intimacy problems, communication issues and many more. Sometimes it is a recent change in one's life: infidelity, a move, or the end of a relationship. Taking the risk to ask for help is the first step on the road towards healing and growth."

"My practice is rooted in the belief that there is power in knowing and telling your own story. Who are you? Where did you come from? What's important to you? Let's work together to untangle your story, identify your strengths, goals, passions, and barriers; and make you the author of what comes next. I work with people who want to make positive changes, but feel paralyzed by stress, fear, indecision, or old habits. I can also help you learn concrete strategies for managing uncomfortable thoughts, emotions, transitions, health conditions or problematic relationships."

"Sometimes the coping strategies that we use no longer work for us. And the usual support systems we turn to, are at times just not enough. Therapy can be an added support to help us figure out new strategies to cope with the challenges and times of transition in our lives. I provide a calm and reflective space, where together we will reach a deeper understanding of what holds you back and what changes you need to make to live your life more fully. Some areas of specialization include women's issues, perinatal and postnatal disorders, early parenting and cancer."

"Are you struggling with relationships? Are you having the same fight with your partner over and over? Have you lost the emotional connection you used to have? Do you find yourself trapped in similar relationship dynamics in most of your relationships and feel helpless to change those negative patterns? Intimate relationships touch our deepest relational wounds. That's why we can be overwhelmed with the pain they bring and often, at points, feel like giving up. When attended to with gentleness and compassion these wounds can heal and we can experience a new level of connection and love - one which we couldn't have imagined. "

Being warm, caring, empathetic, and helpful is a core part of being a therapist, so I won't emphasize those qualities here. In terms of my more unique clinical facets, I endeavor to be nonjudgmental even when not neutral. I'm high energy, whimsical, and mirthful in the counseling room. I am also skilled at verbally describing internal decision-making and emotional processes and have excellent pattern recognition and analytical skills."

"As an African American male, I am well aware of the reluctance in our community to express personal feelings of pain, distress and overall discomfort around the things troubling us. African Americans share the same mental health issues as the rest of the world, with arguably even greater stressors due to racism, prejudice, and economic disparities. Work, family responsibilities and other commitments too often take priority over the need for therapy/counseling, which can be viewed as a luxury item instead of necessary self-care. "
