Alexis Unser, MS, LMFT

Alexis has been working in the mental health field since 2011. She has a master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Edgewood College which has helped her focus on understanding the full systemic influences that can affect individuals, couples, and family’s mental health. Alexis has extensive history in working with trauma and is specifically trained in a modality called Brainspotting. Brainspotting is a neurocognitive approach to treatment which locates points in the client’s visual field that help to access unprocessed trauma in the subcortical brain. Alexis has worked in the community previously and is well versed in providing psychotherapy with cognitive and brain-based approaches. She also has experience in corrections which has significantly built her skills in crisis intervention, trauma informed care, suicide prevention, and self-care management. Alexis is passionate about working with Law Enforcement and is currently serving those within the field. Other areas of focus include anxiety, depression, grief and loss, addiction, sports performance, LGBT, self-identify, couples, and family therapy. Her work is influenced from a psychodynamic perspective, using systemic based theories, while focusing on solution focused and client centered approaches.
