Felipe Alexandre, MA, LAC, NCC
I graduated from the University of Vermont with a Bachelor’s in Political Science and English. I completed my Master’s at New Jersey City University, specializing in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. I am a NJ State licensed and NBCC Certified Counselor. I have previously worked at an in-patient substance abuse facility and a University counseling and wellness center. In addition to now working in a private practice setting, I provide crisis intervention and patient stabilization services at Jersey City Medical Center’s Psychiatric Emergency Department. I pursue my work with motivated teens, adults, and couples who are open to introspection and seek to understand the complexity of their problems.

I see a diverse range of clients and issues and specialize in treating those who struggle with anxiety & social disorders, depression, relationship issues, and career difficulties. Clients who thrive in my approach are curious about themselves, the world, and human nature.

My goal is to help clients better understand themselves, their choices, and the world around them. I enter each session with curiosity and openness and pursue authenticity to provide a unique encounter. As clients gain greater self-awareness, they can discover new possibilities, become freer and assert themselves as agents of their own self-actualization. While guided by Psychodynamic and Existential principles, I adopt an integrative approach that blends elements of various theories. My technique is shaped by clinical practice, which spans a range of clients and settings, my pursuit of knowledge, my curiosity about the world, and my own life experiences.

I enjoy reading, spending time with my children and family, and practicing Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu in my free time. I am a mid-life career changer who spent well over a decade working within the corporate environment for various companies, despite my inner voice calling for something different.
