Profile Alejandro



If you are looking for psychological support in Argentina, I can be of help. I’m an argentine-american psychologist helping  individuals and couples in Buenos Aires, and throughout Argentina via telehealth sessions.  I offer therapy treatment for mental health as well as counseling support for adjustment, wellness, and personal growth.   

I can be of help in the treatment of depression, anxiety, grief, trauma, phobias, and other conditions causing distress and  impairment. My approach is collaborative, with a strong focus on building resources that have a positive impact on adjustment and overall wellbeing.  Our work is based on agreed goals and a plan we create together. We assess needs and priorities, and progressively address issues with care and sensitivity to your unique situation.

Some people, individuals and couples, seek support, not because of symptoms or illness, but because of specific challenges or the wish to grow and overcome obstacles. Life abroad can pose unique challenges. It can also offer unique opportunities for rich personal transformations. Whichever the reasons, our work will aim to help you understand your needs and build skills and resources to reach the change you want. I’m excited to see how clients succeed, again and again, in turning challenges into opportunities for growth.  

My work with couples, many of them bi-cultural, is based on can integrative framework based on attachment theory, systems functioning, cross-cultural relating, communication and teaming dynamics, and developmental psychology. I support partners in learning about their relationship and their own experience in it, and help them create new ways of engaging and communicating.  Couples sessions can be done via telehealth by just having both partners in front of the camera, or, if they are in different spaces, by connecting simultaneously on a video platform I provide. I only work with couples in which both partners are located in Argentina. We may plan for 90-minute sessions, as well as more intensive modules. We can discuss all this and decide a plan together. I am flexible and, together, we will decide an approach that works for you. 

I practice Integrative Psychotherapy, a well established science-based approach that includes tools and resources from cognitive sciences (e.g. CBT, DBT), developmental theory, humanistic values, narrative, psychodynamic, and constructivist psychology. Within such an approach, we attend to interpersonal, systemic, historical, political, and environmental factors. 

I’ve been working with people, in some for of helping or caring role, since 1999. As an expat myself, I rely also on significant personal and professional experience in supporting clients navigating life abroad. I’ve been fortunate to work with inspiring colleagues and clients in hospital, research, and education settings: at NY-Presbyterian Hospital in NYC, the Research Foundation also in NY, the CCHE-Columbia University, and the Morrison Center in Portland, OR. Please see the Resume section for more information.

Psychological care works best when we feel safe, understood, and empowered. In this context, I commit to offering you intelligent and supportive care, so you can grow in the direction of your values and preferences. I am an ally to all diversity: cultural, ethnic, sexual, religious, and lifestyle.  I follow US standards of privacy and confidentiality. In this context, I aim to create conditions for us to be able to talk about anything and everything that is important to you.

Please let me know if you have questions or want to connect.
I look forward to speaking with you,


Alejandro Pawliszyn, Lic. Psychologist
