My name is Alexis and I'm a Licensed Professional Counselor and Licensed Chemical Dependency Counselor in the state of Texas. I am also a Certified Sport Psychology Coach working toward my Doctorate in Sport Psychology. I have obtained my Masters in Rehab Counseling and my Bachelor’s in Journalism; therefore, I do use a creative approach during sessions. I also use a warm and direct approach to counseling. I believe that everyone can change, but we first must want to change before the transformation can take place. I have experience working with individuals with depression, anxiety/stress, self-esteem, family conflict, substance abuse, codependency, and career challenges.
I'm aware of the stigma of mental help and everyday life issues and am here to help lead you and fight through the challenges to become the person that you want to be. I lean more on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Person-Centered Therapy, and a holistic/eclectic approach when it comes to therapy modalities. I view mental health like physical health. If you go to the gym for one week, you won't see the results that you most likely want to achieve. After you do see the results, you must keep working on your physical health to maintain the results. Mental health, like physical health is a lifestyle change. It takes time to break challenging habits and to see the change that we want; however, sometimes Solution Focused Therapy is possible depending on the issue and I'm willing to work with you on that. I like to see what works for you during the treatment process and give you options. If you like reflection assignments or things to take home I can provide you with those activities. If you like to work on majority of things during session and just practice in your everyday life until we meet again that is fine too. I'm here for you because I know what it takes to be effective and how it feels to feel stuck or challenged. I look forward to working with you and applaud you for taking the first step in become the you that you want to be in life!
