CPSC
Alex Hoeplinger

Life can get extremely heavy and complicated all too easily. While challenging periods in life, relationships, or family can overwhelm, they also bring rich opportunities to cultivate resilience, a deeper connection, and lasting fulfillment. I will help you work through your pain and struggles by supporting you in developing a stronger sense of Self. My person-centered approach, which focuses on you rather than your symptoms, will guide you in developing more autonomous control over your life, fears, and relationships for more holistic mental health. This will help you break out of patterns that have you feeling stuck and lost.
 
I practice relational and in-depth psychotherapy to provide you lasting mental health. I work with teens, adults, couples, and siblings through difficult life transitions by helping them explore the meaning behind their patterns, thoughts, feelings, and means of relating to create the space for healing and change within.
 
My training was grounded in an existential-humanistic approach inspired by relational, psychodynamic, and experiential therapeutic philosophies. I see my role as one that tries to connect with people in an incredibly powerful and meaningful way so that they may better see themselves and change by autonomously creating who they want to become.

Those I work with tend to be experiencing the following, among others:

  • Life transitions: identity shifts, confusion, and crisis; wanting or needing to change but not knowing how; struggling to move forward in life; struggling to move on from the past; feeling lost, stuck, afraid, or overwhelmed with confusion
  • Existential issues: loneliness, emptiness, fear, lack of meaning, struggling to know yourself
  • Emotional & psychological distress: depression, anxiety, mood swings, nervousness, angst
  • Shame: difficulty valuing or accepting yourself; feeling unlovable, worthless, guilty, or to blame; self doubt, low self-esteem
  • Unhealed wounds from childhood
  • Anger
  • Trauma: childhood abuse; sexual, physical, emotional, or psychological abuse
  • Grief
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Escapism: Substance abuse and addiction, obsessions (i.e. with work, relationships, hobbies, etc.), self-medication
  • Codependency: struggling to strike a healthy balance between individuality and togetherness with others
  • Unwanted thoughts: racing thoughts, unable to understand yourself and your patterns, feeling helpless
  • Struggling to make choices
  • Strained relationships with loved ones
  • Couples issues: constant arguing or conflict with partners, unhealthy communication, lack of intimacy or fulfillment, relationship transitions, infidelity, premarital counseling, parenting issues, growing apart
  • Family/Sibling issues: unhealthy family dynamics and means of communicating, power struggles and imbalances, constant arguing, chronic tension and anxiety, resentment, alarming behaviors or symptoms manifesting in one or more family members, sibling resentment or competition

If you struggle with any or all of these issues, you can contact me at 510-329-8674 for a complimentary 20 minute phone consultation to discuss your case, assess our working together, and schedule your first session 50% off.
