Alexis Bahnmaier

(MSW, LCSW)

About Me

Hello and welcome to this transformative self-care journey! I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Florida with 12+ years of experience working as a therapist with many different populations. My specialty areas include working with clients who struggle with depression, anxiety, relationship issues, and trauma. I also specialize in helping individuals in the LGBTQIA community work through questions of gender, sexuality, identity, as well as the social prejudices and anxieties associated with family, friends, and workplaces.

I absolutely have a passion for helping people get to a place where they can manage their stress levels, as well as feel more empowered to handle challenges on their own. Helping people to the point that they no longer need treatment is the ultimate goal of therapy.

My counseling style is warm, interactive, and heavily client centered. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, without using stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, solution focused and rational-emotive counseling. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs. I also make sure, especially with trauma, to meet the client where they are and assess for the real focus of treatment. Rather than
pushing an individual through treatment, therapy should guide and support them at their own pace.

It takes courage to seek treatment for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!

Alexis has been a wonderful help and an amazing person to talk to. In just two session, I was able to help myself with an issue that has been persisting for the last few years.

Wonderful at helping, and she’s been the only counselor to accept me. Everyone else always passed me off because it was “too much trauma”
