Alex Ostrow, MHC Candidate December 2023, Clinical Intern
My name is Alex and I am a Master’s in Mental Health Counseling candidate with an anticipated graduation date in December of 2023 from Bridgewater State University. I am completing my internship hours with Transitions Counseling Services.
I am offering intensive short term treatment for clients who are looking to gain skills and quickly reach their goals. I use a collaborative approach to help my clients find their drive and navigate life’s many challenges and difficult decisions as someone who is “on their team.” I am open to working with clients of all ages and especially enjoy working with adolescents and young adults. I am passionate about helping clients overcome their anxiety and depression to achieve their goals and find their passions in life. I most enjoy assisting young adults and adolescents find their path forward.
I use a variety of therapeutic interventions in my work including CBT, mindfulness practice, and more recently acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT). In my opinion, ACT incorporates aspects of mindfulness to truly support growth in a holistic way. I have personally benefited from mindfulness practice in my life and enjoy teaching my clients how to develop their own mindfulness skills.
I am currently working as a School Adjustment Counselor Intern at Tri-County RVTHS. In my role with Tri-County, I support students on social, emotional, behavioral concerns which also indirectly helps students with academic performance. My previous experience includes an internship at an outpatient Mental Health Counseling agency, where I worked with clients from ages ranging from 14-60, addressing concerns such as anxiety, depression, stress, ADHD, self-esteem, anger, trauma, and interpersonal relationships.
As an avid golfer and with a Bachelor’s of Science in Sports Management from UMASS Amherst in 2013, I particularly enjoy working with athletes and intend to pursue a certification as a Certified Mental Performance Consultant in the future.
I am offering in person and virtual sessions on Thursdays and Fridays in the Norfolk office. I look forward to the opportunity to work with you!
