Dr. Alexander Bingham

Hello! I am Dr. Alexander Bingham. Welcome! I am an experienced clinical psychologist. I offer my services to children, adults, couples, and families in crisis, helping them recover from distress, however extreme. I am experienced in working successfully with chronic anxiety, depression, psychosis/schizophrenia, eating disorders, and addiction to both illegal, legal, and prescription drugs. I am trained both in traditional psychotherapy (talk therapy) and somatic (body-oriented) psychotherapy.

I am experienced in providing psychological healthcare for a full spectrum of those interested in improving their ability to repair/maintain their emotional/physical health. I will help you design your own integrative therapeutic program tailored to your own needs and health goals. I specialize in assisting those who wish to avoid, minimize, or discontinue their use of toxic medications prescribed for psychological distress.

In addition to my twenty years as a psychotherapist, I have taught graduate psychology classes and conducted psychological research on the dangers and inefficacy of using psychotropic medications to treat psychological distress. My first work, An Investigation of Being Under the Influence of Prozac focused specifically on the dangerous flaws in the clinical trials, marketing, and the subsequent reliance of millions of people on this popular drug. This work also exposed the unproven nature of the theories of biological defect and chemical imbalance which support the use of these toxic drugs and the diagnoses which make them seem necessary. My last project, The Full Spectrum Progressive Psychology Center, was an integrative intensive outpatient clinic in San Francisco based on somatic and medication-free principles dedicated to supporting the recovery of those experiencing severe psychological distress such as psychosis, chronic anxiety, depression, and addiction to illegal and prescription medications.

There are many different reasons you might want to work with me

  • You may simply want to accelerate your personal growth in a certain area
  • You may want to explore your next steps in your career or relationship
  • You may be experiencing anxiety or depression
  • You may be experiencing psychosis, mania, suicidality, chronic addiction, or eating disorders
  • You may want to reduce, discontinue, or avoid using debilitating medications
  • You may be labeled with debilitating psychiatric diagnoses such as schizophrenia, bipolar, borderline, etc.

I work in both individual and group sessions. Individual sessions are tailored to the needs of the individual and group sessions are offered around specific group needs and individual issues which include:

Whether you need to manage a current emotional crisis, recover from past traumatic experience, or simply improve your physical and emotional health, I am willing and able to work with you to support you in achieving the level of psychological health you feel you need at this time in your life as quickly as possible.

I look forward to hearing from you,
