Alexander Alvarado, PsyD

Psychologist, Psychotherapist, Neuropsychologist

Professional statement

Call our office for a free 10-minute phone consultation to discuss what treatment approach is best for you. Negative thoughts and emotions can interfere with our ability to be productive. This can be problematic when we're at work, in relationships, and all around in everyday life. Through the use of mindfulness and CBT, I specialize in treating anxiety, specific phobias, ADHD, and also provide high performance coaching. I realize that the past has value, however, I understand that many of my clients come in with situations that need solutions in the NOW. My office is located in Midtown Manhattan, which means many of the people I consult work in industries such as finance, law, marketing, etc. and have hectic schedules. This is why I offer flexible hours in both the morning and evening. Neuofeedback is available for clients who would benefit. Neurofeedback helps enhance the brain's performance and has been most notably shown to increase attention, reduce anxiety, and reduce depression.

He helped me so much!! I really needed someone to listen and not to judge me. From the moment I walked in the room, Alex knew I could get my life better even if I couldn't. I work in an intenseenvironment and I really needed help managing my stress. He helped me understand how normal it is to go through the feelings I was having, considering my situation. I felt empowered and hopeful. Very thankful I was open to getting help!

I was referred to Alex after a good friend was kind enough to share him with me. In the past 6 months he's as had such a positive effect on my life. He is very smart, genuine, professional, and very easyto talk to. I am so glad I didn't give up after my first terrible experience with another psychologist. The actual psychologist makes a world of difference!

Was referred to him by several physicians. It was interesting that they all wanted me to see the same doctor. He has been great and is very skilled. I look forward to each visit and feel my problems are resolving rapidly.

I'm never the type of person to write reviews but I feel compelled to write one for Dr. Alvarado. My teenage son has been to a number of psychologists the past few years and has always been against therapy. Never hashe connected with someone as much as he has connected with Dr. Alvarado. I've seen changes in him that I wouldn't have believed last year. He even looks forward to his sessions. Thank you Dr. Alvarado.

During the time I've seen Alex I've reached goals I never thought were possible in both my work and personal life. With the tools I've learned from our time together, as well as his motivation and compassion, I feel like mybest self. I used to get very hung up on minor details, but Alex has been amazing at helping me see the bigger picture.
