Psychiatrist in Richmond Heights, Missouri Dr. Alexander Hayek, DO

Dr. Alexander Hayek, DO

Dr. Alexander Hayek is a Psychiatrist in Missouri who has been practicing since 2019. One of the things Dr. Hayek has come to appreciate in his personal and professional life is the importance of the Winnicottian “holding environment” to facilitate personal growth and development, one that is consistent, stable, and supported. While this is important throughout one’s life, it is especially so for children and adolescents who rely on that security and safety, critically so during periods of constant flux. Dr. Hayek strives to provide this holding environment in clinic by interweaving the “art” of medicine with the science of medicine and honing in on the empathic client/provider relationship based on trust, understanding, and compassion. Dr. Hayek believes in taking a mindful holistic approach to his care of patients and learning about their lived experience rather than solely focusing on a diagnosis. Outside of work, Dr. Hayek enjoys music composition/piano, travel, philosophy, binge-watching shows, and spending quality time/making memories with his wife, 9 younger siblings, and his cat “Pumpkin.”
