Alexis (she/her) has been working in the mental health field since 2016. 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 an extensive history of 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 is well versed in providing psychotherapy with cognitive and brain-based approaches. She also has experience working in the corrections environment, which has significantly built her skills in crisis intervention, trauma informed care, suicide prevention, and self-care management.
Alexis is a Certified First Responder Counselor. She is very passionate about working with Law Enforcement and other First Responders. As the Director of the First Responder Program, here with HealthyMinds LLC, Alexis is dedicated to providing excellent services to first responders, so they can live a healthy and quality-filled life.
Other areas of focus include anxiety, depression, grief and loss, addiction, sports performance, LGBT, self-identify, couples, and family therapy. As a member of the queer community herself, Alexis offers LGBTQ+ affirming therapy. Her work is influenced from a psychodynamic perspective, using systemic based theories, while focusing on solution focused and client centered approaches.
