About Me

Hi There!
My name is Alexis and I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in the state of Florida. I relocated to Florida in 2013 from New York State. I have experience working with individuals throughout the lifespan. I have experience working in both inpatient and outpatient settings offering treatment to individuals (ages 18-geriatric) with mild to severe mental health disorders.

My goal as a therapist is to find solutions that work for you on an individual basis, helping you to discover the true potential of your life, so everyday can be a celebration, and feel like a real ‘breath of fresh air.’ There may be no magic button or quick-fix solution when it comes to changing things from the past that have been difficult, but what we can do is work together to find comfort and resolve in the difficult areas of your life, and the challenges you have to face. Through various techniques and long-standing approaches with proven results, we’ll be able to figure out what behaviors and/or thoughts might be holding you back from living your best life, and finding meaning in everyday situations.

I believe that establishing trust within the counseling relationship is paramount. My specialty areas include: depression, anxiety, adjustment related stress, relational stress, parenting issues, and trauma. I tend to utilize cognitive behavioral therapy, solution-based modalities, along with other theoretical orientations to guide treatment. I am easy going, excited, motivated, and truly passionate about my role as "helper".

I look forward to speaking with you and working together to make tomorrow GREAT!

I've only had one session with Alexis, but it was fantastic! I felt understood and heard immediately, she has a way of making me feel like she's truly listening and caring for what I have to say. I loved how she explained her approach and background - she gained my trust very quickly. Her counseling was very helpful and concrete, and I'm looking forward to working more with her.

She’s a very kind and understanding counselor, but also very relatable which has been extremely hard to find for me.

Alexis helped me overcome a lot of the major complications in my life and helped me see that I am in control of my emotions and feelings. She helped with relationships and helped me organize my thoughts. She would always respond and support me when I felt weak and helpless, and made me see why I am feeling that way and how to solve it. I fell liken I'm in the right path now, in the right mindset to solve my daily problems myself and not feel overwhelmed. I will recommend her to anyone dealing with family issues, feelings if helplessness, leading to depression and anxiety. Thank you Alexis.

Alexis has been phenomenal. This was my first real therapy experience and I’ve found it to be very productive. Alexis has helped me to feel grounded and more in control. She’s been supportive and knowledgeable about my problems and how to best guide me through them. She’s really made the past few months significantly easier. I’ve actually been sleeping through the night for the first time in like 3 years. It’s been great and all thanks to the help and support of Alexis.

I have come a long way. With the help of Alexis, I have accomplished things I thought I'd never do. I am glad I did this, it has benefited me so much. With the guidance and encouragement of Alexis, I am more confident in myself and I see a clear path to success and happiness. I have learned to control myself and not doubt myself. It is hard to let go but I know I will be fine and if I need she will still be here for me. Thank you Alexis you have truly helped me change my life. I am so grateful. I wish you the best!

Alexis is a kind hearted woman who tells you the truth. She helped me realize I'm not alone in a lot of the things I would fret over. She helped develop steps to work on the issues I had and to see how to work through them. She is amazing.

My counselor seems to be able to pinpoint exactly what is going on with myself and my emotions. She has great responses to my issues and gives me plenty of things to think about after our sessions end. I would definitely recommend her to anyone who needs help!!
