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 training in Infant Mental Health and Trauma- Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. I have experience working in both inpatient and outpatient settings offering treatment to individuals (ages 18-geriatric) with mild to severe mental health disorders.
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 theoretic orientations to guide treatment. I believe that every person deserves a individual based treatment approach, your needs and goals will be the foundation of what we will accomplish together. 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 have absolutely loved working with Alexis. She has been so helpful in any area of my daily life that has caused me trouble or frustration. She offers a perspective on situations that I simply would not have seen otherwise. I have recommended this site to several of my friends and family members!
She has been great! I have recommended this site to a couple of friends. I love it.
Alexis had helped me so much in finding my trigger points and working through various issues that I'm facing. She's given me such great resources and I'm in such a better place now mentally.
Alexis James is very easy to open up to and offers wonderful insight. I highly recommend her... She’s helped give me clarity.
She is one of the best therapists I have had.
It’s great that I have someone to talk to to validate my feelings and help me see things clearly. I have to say she is the most pleasant to talk to.
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!!
