David B. Alexander has been a terrific therapist for 5+ years. Prior to David, I had been in therapy for a long time, but hadn't been able to develop the proper "doctor/patient" chemistry, to allow for a deeper, internal probing of underlying subconscious issues that were preventing personal growth. David's persona and methodology allow for that difficult journey to be embarked upon and to remain on a steady course. He is always present, dependable and empathetic. I can't recommend him highly enough.

Note: appointments need to be cancelled with at least 24 hours notice, although exceptions can be made at the discretion of the therapist for special circumstances. Cancellations without proper notice can be charged a $75 cancellation fee or a full session fee.
The approach I use is to simultaneously expand awareness of one's own deep processes (insight) together with finding effective, empowered ways to express insight in daily life (energy). When an individual's inner and outer worlds are aligned with each other, and aligned with universal principles of human nature, the individual is able to expand awareness and connection, and find fulfillment.
As a result of expanding your insight and connecting to your innate energy, you can:
  • reduce stress due to better self-knowledge and expression in daily life
  • improve harmony of mind and body
  • gain the joyfulness and the focus needed to reach your goals
  • build strong relationships that are mutually satisfying

These improvements in life quality apply to individuals, couples, and families as well as to leaders and to organizational teams.
The modalities I have been practicing and sharing since 1971, include:
  • Psychotherapy
  • Tai Chi Chuan
  • Zen meditation

Each of the above are each based on ancient, proven principles and are in accord with the most current understanding of human nature and potential for growth.

For those focused on success in the workplace, I offer my own history of first working for and then providing consulting services to companies and organizations with sizes ranging from one person to Fortune 500; I ran my own successful business consulting company for thirty years.

I am happy to offer my experience and insight so you can find greater success in reaching your life goals.
  • Individual Psychotherapy
  • Couples Counseling
  • Executive and Organizational Therapy

Individual Psychotherapy includes help with anxiety / stress, burnout, purpose, and relationships.
Couples Counseling focuses on deepening communication and ability to hear each other. The principles of NVC (non-violent communication) shows each person in a couple how to express what they want and need while strengthening rather than weakening intimacy with the other member of the couple, and teaches how to hear the unexpressed wants and needs of the other so as to have a more empathic and effective response.
Executive and Organizational Therapy helps leaders and their organizations understand their intrinsic gifts and skills, as well as the roots of their blocks to well-being and success.

Along with effective business strategies, based on thirty years of business consulting experience, I help decision makers and team members have a clearer vision, better collaboration and authentic connection with team members, and alignment of goals for more engagement and enjoyment of being part of the organization.

Develop and enjoy your own clear insight and energy to make the most of each day!
Here are some of the principles behind well-being and success, which apply in all aspects of life but are expressed in different ways, depending on the environment.
Individuals and Couples
Your self-created insight and energy, through guidance and dialogue with an experienced therapist, are a solution for a leading a better life. Through this work we help you uncover your innate insight and energy, a wonderful resource that each of us has but which few of us use to their full capability.
Daily life makes many requirements on every human being. These requirements include regulating your inner state to avoid the excesses of burnout, loss of motivation, or painful anxiety and stress. Daily life also requires finding meaningful expression of oneself in all activities, in loving relationships and friendships, as well as in your work. In some cases, better listening skills are needed; in other cases, more assertiveness is needed.
Leaders / Entrepreneurs and Organizations
Leadership success and entrepreneurial success require not only understanding of the typical internal and environmental methods that make organizations (from one person to thousands of people) successful, but also require self-awareness and the ability to communicate in all your interactions from a personal position of vision, authenticity, connection, and energy.
Communicating one's vision and living that reality moment by moment and day by day, requires self-awareness, compassion and empathy, and skill in communicating.
Find out how to bring vision and success to yourself and to your organization through clear vision, authenticity, skilled communication, and effective strategies.
