Alec Sternig, MS, LPC

Alec has more than 10 years of experience supporting individuals, couples, and families along their therapeutic journey. His style is warm and attentive and he believes that human beings can find their balance when they are provided with a safe, supportive, growth-promoting environment. He is here to listen, offer feedback, and help clients make the change they want to see in their lives. Alec believes counseling is an active process and that it is much more likely to be productive when clients have a sense of ownership regarding what they would like to change. He draws on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) as well as elements of Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) to help clients find their strengths, focus their energy, build their skills, and connect with the inner resources they already have.
