Alexis Stein, LCSW, is a psychotherapist with more than a decade of experience providing therapy to individuals, couples and families.  Alexis specializes in relationships, marital issues, sexual functioning, trauma, and addiction issues.

She received her B.A. in Psychology, with a minor in Sociology, at the University of Pennsylvania. She then received her Master’s in Social Work at Fordham University.  Prior to joining Morris Psychological Group, Alexis completed her clinical placement at the Institute for Human Identity in NYC—a psychotherapy and training center dedicated to providing LGBTQ affirmative mental health services—where she focused on relationship and couples therapy, trauma, and gender and sexual identity.  She also gained specialized experience in Imago Relationship Therapy for couples work and Seeking Safety work for PTSD and substance abuse.  Alexis then practiced individual, couples and group therapy at a large outpatient rehabilitation center in New York City, where she developed and served as the Clinical Coordinator for the Working Professionals in Recovery and the Trauma Programs.  Alexis opened her own private practice in Manhattan in 2013.

Alexis’s practice centers on helping her clients achieve an improved quality of life by developing coping and communication skills to address seemingly unmanageable circumstances.  She provides a safe space to focus on behavioral patterns, create self-awareness, and apply mindfulness to facilitate growth and promote resiliency.  Her approach to therapy is psychodynamic in nature, but tailored to the client’s needs, utilizing a combination of strengths perspective, object relations and gestalt therapy, while incorporating cognitive behavioral techniques such as Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT) and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT).

Alexis is an active member of the New York and New Jersey chapters National Association of Social Work.  She maintains close working relationships with elite mental health and addiction rehabilitation centers.  She speaks at high schools about substance abuse, safety and boundary/consent issues and is trained in the administration of Narcan.  Alexis has also contributed articles to thefix.com and rehabs.com.  She is licensed in both New York and New Jersey.
