CLINCAL DIRECTOR
Licensed Professional Counselor of Mental Health (LPCMH), NCC

As life-long native of Dover, I studied at Wesley College and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology. Later, I went on to earn my Master of Science Degree in Mental Health Counseling at Springfield College. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor of Mental Health for the State of Delaware and a Nationally Certified Counselor with over 12 years of experience.

My clinical work includes working with children, adolescents, adults, families, and couples in individual and group sessions. My areas of expertise include a focus on addiction treatment and recovery, as well as relapse treatment and prevention, skills training, and working with family systems impacted by addiction.

I have additional training in handling crisis intervention, co-occurring disorders and behavioral intervention using various counseling modalities including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.

My ultimate goal is to continue to help individuals enhance their overall quality of life and equip them with the necessary skills and tools they will need on their road to recovery.

Alex Cropper

EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR
BA, Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor (CADC)

I provide addiction counseling and support to adults, adolescents, and their families who are experiencing struggles within their relationships and daily lives with substance abuse and mental health disorders.

My approach to therapy is integrative, strengths based, and tailored to fit the specific goals and needs of my clients. I aim to create a safe space for clients to share their concerns, thoughts and feelings without fear of judgment. Through this process, clients can begin to develop ways to change unhealthy behaviors and develop new patterns in thinking. I cater most of my therapy to a life/social skills approach as well as integrating evidence-based treatment and cognitive behavior treatment.


My expertise includes outpatient treatment, inpatient residential, depression, anxiety, halfway house treatment, adjustment disorders, grief, loss, trauma, substance abuse, addiction, relationships and life transition issues.

I have additional training as a correctional counselor and an at-risk youth counselor. While working with foster and adopted children and adolescents, I strived to help make sense of their identity while coping with feelings of loss, depression and anxiety. Working together with parents we strengthen family relationships including learning new and effective ways of communicating and understanding.

I’ve also worked with individuals to overcome probation/parole while simultaneously monitoring their recovery progress with their probation/parole officer. I helped restore lives of once broken individuals to become productive members of society as well as being able to be welcomed back to their families.
