Alexi Saldamando, LCSW-R

Individual & Couples Therapy

Individual Therapy
I provide individual therapy for a variety of concerns, particularly:
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Relationship stress or break-up
  • Career or job stress
  • School difficulties (undergraduate, graduate, etc.)
  • Schizophrenia and other forms of psychosis
  • Gay/lesbian/bisexual issues
  • Substance abuse
I can provide time-limited treatment, such as crisis or short-term therapy, or long-term therapy, depending on a client's needs and goals.

Couples Therapy
I also provide therapy to couples who are having problems in the relationship, struggling to resolve a conflict, or trying to improve communication. Often partners become locked in patterns of blaming or distancing from one another, or have trouble expressing their needs and wants. As a couples therapist, I help partners find healthy and effective ways of communicating both their needs and frustrations, as well as manage the intense emotions and reactions that surface in intimate relationships.

I work with both opposite-sex and same-sex couples, on either a weekly or bi-weekly basis.

Fees and Insurance
I am currently a provider for Blue Cross / Blue Shield and Aetna; other insurance providers may cover me as an out-of-network provider if you have a PPO or similar plan. Please check with your insurance plan and be sure to mention that I have the "R" privilege.

I offer a free phone consultation to discuss what brings you to therapy and whether I can be of help to you.
If you are not using insurance, I work on a sliding scale, so my rate varies depending on your financial situation.
