Alexis became a Marriage and Family Therapist Associate to help provide a safe space and a nonjudgmental listening ear to others who have felt that they were struggling to be their best selves and live their most authentic lives. She completed her Master’s Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy at Chapman University in Southern California in 2019. During her graduate program, she worked at the Frances Smith Center for Individual and Family Therapy working with the local community to provide affordable care. After graduation, Alexis gained experience working in inpatient and outpatient dual diagnosis substance use and mental health treatment before transitioning to working in outpatient group private practice.
Alexis works with individuals, couples, and families and uses models of treatment that focus on healthy relationships, emotional awareness and expression, increasing positive self-talk and improving quality of life. Some of these treatment modalities include Emotion-Focused Therapy, Family Systems, Solution Focused Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, and Trauma-Informed Care.
She has developed a passion to help transform the relationships that her clients have with themselves as well as the important people in their lives through the development and maintenance of healthy coping skills, boundaries, and communication skills. She also provides a safe space for clients to process their life experiences and let go of what is out of their control while focusing on what is in their control and where they want to spend their emotional energy to work towards a more effective growth mindset.
