Alexander Warnow, LMFT

Hi, I’m Alexander Warnow and I’m a Licensed MFT (Marriage & Family Therapist) practicing Psychotherapy and Counseling 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 often the first step on the road towards healing and growth.

I’m not a traditional therapist. Sure, you’ll hear “how does that make you feel?” sometimes. And I want to know about your past. But I try to focus on giving you practical tools you can use today. I believe in the healing power of creativity, mindfulness, embodiment, laughter and connection.

Finding a therapist you are comfortable with is important. I offer a free 20-minute phone consultation to help you in this process. During this meeting or call we will explore what it would mean to work together, if it would be a good fit, pricing, and any other questions you might have. Contact me today – email, phone, or text – to set up a time to talk .

I draw from many different orientations including Psychodynamic, Hakomi, Client-Centered, Expressive Arts, Narrative, Solution-Focused. For couples I am PACT Level 2 Trained and have additional training in Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy. I choose from these orientations based on the needs of my clients.

I received my Master’s Degree in Counseling Psychology with a focus in the Expressive Arts from the California Institute of Integral Studies in 2010. In the past, I have worked with adults and couples at mental health clinics, with at-risk youth at schools, and with families in homeless shelters.

I am a member of the California Association of Marriage & Family Therapists and I am listed and verified by Psychology Today.
