Alex Kranz is a licensed mental health counselor specializing in integrative therapy for the mind and body. Alex's perspective on therapy, starts with the central belief that if you listen to your clients, they will always tell you what's going on. While that may seem very basic and obvious, unfortunately, there is very little listening going on these days - even in the field of therapy!. When we are listened to, and truly feel respected and accepted, we instinctively have what we need right inside of us to figure out our issues. Alex assists his clients in finding their inner voice. That's how they find their strength. He tailors his approach to the individual client as he believe that nearly all therapeutic modalities have their value, if used in a skilled manner.
Alex has a distinctively unique approach to therapy having come to the field after 20 years of practice as an attorney. One of the important life-lessons he has learned in his role as an attorney is that most people feel overwhelmed but are afraid to acknowledge that basic fact to themselves or to others around. As a result, their perspective on life changes and they find themselves in a "rut" from which they cannot break. Alex uses his education, training and natural empathy to assist his clients in drawing from their internal strength to self-correct.
Alex has a Masters in Mental Health Counseling from Nova Southeastern University. He completed is Juris Doctorate from Hofstra University Law School. He is both a licensed a licensed mental health counselor (LMHC), and licensed attorney in Florida. He is active in the community and dedicates a substantial amount of his free time to providing therapeutic services to local homeless shelters in Palm Beach and Broward counties.
Alex utilizes a variety of techniques to help clients move toward their goal of achieving mental health and peace of mind. As a therapist, he specializes in dealing with addiction, anxiety and depressive disorders. He is particularly adept at working with professionals who find themselves feeling "trapped" or "overwhelmed" by the demands of their career.
