Alexandra Dimant, LCSW, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Tenafly
I believe that my work is in helping clients walk less blindly through life. I try to ask questions to clarify the principles underlying the ways they relate to the world and others. I help not only with common problems (anxiety, depression, PTSD, phobias, OCD, etc.) but also work with those whose issues are not easily captured by a diagnosis and are existential in nature. The so-called "worried well" come to uncover and work through the sources of internal struggles, in order to become their best selves and live a more fulfilling life. I am fully bilingual and practice in both English and Russian.
I tailor my approach to the specific needs and style of each patient. Thus, I can help with a localized problem using EMDR or CBT methods or untangle a deeper issue using existentialist and insight-oriented approaches. I am trained in the treatment of postpartum stress and help women in the first months after delivery.
I often incorporate elements of Western and Eastern philosophies to help elucidate the essential questions of Being we all grapple with. It has also been helpful to use meditation in my work, whether to foster relaxation or to help people gain greater clarity and mindfulness in their everyday life.
