I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker ( LMSW) and Certified Drug and Alcohol Counselor (CADC), who specializes in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. I provide therapy to adolescents and adults by using an integrative approach to counseling that combines cognitive- behavioral and insight-oriented methods. While there are multiple styles of counseling, my belief is that everyone has an innate capacity to grow emotionally and psychologically towards the goals of self-actualization and personal fulfillment. My specialties include but are not limited to:depression, anxiety, addictions, problem solving skills, motivational skills, cognitive therapy, loneliness, and communication skills. Congratulations for considering counseling as a positive way to grow, change and heal. It is possible for you to grow. It will take time, effort and a willing heart.I encourage you to get the support you need and deserve to create a life of greater content and joy. I look forward to working with you.

If you are debating whether or not therapy is worth your money: it’s the best investment you’ll make! Alexis is so worth it. She has helped me so much in the past couple of months. She helped me find my voice and be more assertive. I feel a big shift in my life since working with Alexis. Thank you.
Overall I believe my life changed for the better in the past few months working with Alexis - she’s professional, talented and hardworking. Thanks BetterHelp!
Great sessions very helpful!
Alexis has been a great help and I really appreciate all she does.
Alexis is really amazing . Very compassionate and caring
The few months that I've worked with Alexis have already brought me significant benefits. This is my first time going to therapy, and she is exactly the kind of therapist I needed. Despite her tenderness, she doesn't come across as overbearing or stage-managed. In response to my needs and personality, she quickly adapted her approach. She was able to discern what kinds of words would have the greatest impact on me after only a few sessions. She adapts her explanations to my scientific background by making them precise and analytical, which makes them trustworthy to me. Every week, she provides me with practical advice on how to manage my anxiety, some of which have proven to be pretty effective. In addition, Alexis has been extremely accommodating to my schedule and the time zone difference. I have nothing but appreciation for her.
Absolutely wonderful! Helps me through problems big and small. Always there to support me.
I have been working with Alexis not more than 3 months now and she has been a great great help for me in dealing with some very difficult situations.
She has the right things to say, always motivates me to do better and is really helping me being emotionally independent which is very important for me.
I have made so much progress working with Alexis. She has helped me learn how to identify my emotions, believe in myself, stand up for myself.
She is very accessible and easy to talk to.
It's with her guidance and help that I feel so strong and capable now.
We both agreed that I am ready to continue my journey without therapy. If I feel that I need help again, I would for sure reach out to Alexis again.
It has been a pleasure working with Alexis. She has been incredibly encouraging throughout our sessions and directed me on the right path to improving my anxiety.
Alexis does an incredible job at making sure you’re comfortable during every session, and is very real and honest as a person. Her help has helped take me miles in just a couple months, and I couldn’t have asked for a better therapy experience.
Alex is so incredibly sweet. She's very passionate about what she does, and she's helped me so much. She uses the analogy of being a guide for you to help your own mental health, and it's so, so true. She gives you little nudges of what could help and it's up to you to do them or not. She praises you when you're doing good which is lovely, and I can't express my gratitude towards her enough.
I'm having trouble putting into words what Alex has helped me achieve and overcome over the last two years. She is an amazing human who has changed my life in the last two years. A partner in my mental health journal. She listens, she doesn't give directions, and she is so funny!
Alexis has helped me so much over the past year, it’s amazing to look back now and see how far I have come with her guidance. I was hesitant to use an online therapy platform but I am so glad that I did.
Alexis was really helpful with helping me overcome my issues. I was very comfortable whenever we talked and I feel like she really understands who you are and how you would like to be helped even if you dont quite understand what help you may need yourself.
Alexis really gave me useful insights on things I wanted to work through. She is always supportive and really knows how to listen. Thank you Alexis for helping me become more assertive and keep me focused on my goals!
I am beyond grateful to have Alexis as my counsellor. She goes out of her way to check on me in between sessions, guide me through dark times and she’s very real with me. I feel comfortable to fully open up to her, ever feel judged and express myself how i need to. She’s helped me see light through a time of grieving and deep depression. She continues to push me to be the best version of myself. She has made such an impact on my life, I look forward to sessions with Alexis.
Alex is a pleasure to work with. She is very observant, non-judgmental, and easy to talk to. She has helped me through a very difficult 2021. I highly recommend her if you need someone to help you work through issues that are standing in the way of your future happiness. Thank you, Alex!
Alexis is kind, warm, and so helpful. I have been battling with anxiety for years now, but always thought that I should try to make it on my own. With the help and guidance from Alexis, I was motivated to be more proactive about my mental health and it has helped me immensely. I wholeheartedly recommend Alexis to everyone!
I immediately connected with Alexis. I never felt judged, always felt understood and she really helped me and still helps me process anything I'm going through.
I highly recommend her, especially because of what we all going through right now.
Alexis is an amazing, supportive therapist and my time working with her has been so helpful! I feel much more confident and comfortable in my daily life than I did when I started therapy. Even when I have bad days, I can manage them better using the knowledge and skills that Alexis has taught me.
I have only had 2 sessions with Alexis and have already been feeling a lot better thanks to her, she is attentive, caring, and provides really helpful advice to help you overcome your issues. I highly recommend her!
Alexis is a phenomenal therapist. She is insightful and funny, and she balances candor with empathy and care. She is able to tailor sessions to what you need on a given day — whether that means focused, guided CBT or more open-ended talk therapy. She has helped me to break destructive patterns that were thirty years in the making.
Alexis is able to root out what is going on with me. She is able to provide answers and solutions. She helps me problem solve. I am feeling better since working with Alexis.
Alexis has been a huge support system for me during a significant transition period in my life. She approaches our sessions with candor, empathy, and perspective that makes me feel heard and supported. She's helped me reframe my thinking to cope with stressors and trauma, and has given me the tools to look after my own mental health and take care of myself.
I truly appreciate Alexis and how she approaches our time. There is no judgement or fear of embarrassment about the things I am trying to deal with. She is open, honest and direct with me. Which is exactly what I need. Most importantly she gives me a voice when I otherwise don’t feel like I have one. I have already recommended her to a few of my friends, and will continue to do so. She has been a true blessing in my personal growth as a man, a boyfriend, and a father.
I am so glad that I have found Alexis as a therapist! At first, I was skeptical of using an on-line forum to search for a therapist, but I was having a hard time finding a counselor I connected with that had the skills to help me move through my issues.
Upon our FIRST conversation, I thought, "this is definitely going to work!" Alexis is very knowledgeable in CBT and familiar with DBT. These are two modalities of therapy that help me tremendously to work on reframing thoughts, challenging my negative core beliefs and moving through some current, difficult life stressors. She is real, approachable and makes you feel equal. Whereas, in the past, I have felt that therapists talk at me.
Alexis is supportive and caring and encourages me to keep growing through my mental health journey. I am so glad that I have her in my corner now, Alexis is a pleasure to work with!
Better help was my first experience with therapy, and I couldn't be happier with the results so far. Alexis is extremely well-versed in her field of expertise, she understands my demons from the past and has helped me steer towards a positive direction. She walks the line between being a caring friend that you've known for years and a business professional with years of experience. I highly recommend Alexis to anyone.
Alexis is very friendly and approachable. She listens to me without interrupting me. She is very professional and very easy to talk to, and is not judgemental at all.
Alexis has been so thoughtful, compassionate, and helpful in our sessions. We've been working together for a year already and having an understanding ear to express all my thoughts and fears to has been so valuable. I am very grateful for her support and insight and would absolutely recommend her!
Alex is incredible. I love talking with her. She lets me make jokes, but still keeps me on track to work on my anxiety and depression. She was really there for me when I had to say goodbye to my fur baby. My life has been greatly improved since she has become my counselor. 10/10 recommend.
Great counselor! She gets right to it and doesn’t waste your time/money. Very candid and easy to talk to. 10 out of 10 would recommend
Alexis is amazing! If you get the opportunity to work with her, consider yourself lucky, she really cares about her patients. Thank you :)
She is really an amazing counselor and very insightful. I really appreciate that I had her support and insights during difficult times! Thank you so much Alexis!
She is the best therapist I've ever seen.
I've appreciated Alexis’s support in bringing me back to a healthy place. My healing journey would have been much more difficult without her support and guidance.
I've really enjoyed working with Alexis. She has provided some really valuable help to me and encouraged me to think about things in new ways that I hadn't thought of before and have been really helpful. She has been encouraging and accepting and really flexible and helpful on a variety of topics.
Alexis helped me navigate a tough time in my life when I needed clarity and organization. It is great and easy to talk to Alexis and I feel very comfortable sharing any aspect of my life. Appreciate all the help that you're doing!
Alex is the first counsellor I have really clicked with. I have learnt so much about the different anxious thought processes and it has helped my anxiety a great deal. Alex is kind, compassionate and so easy going, I feel very at ease during her sessions.
Ive been working with Alexis for about a half a year now. She is very supportive, professional and knowledgeable. She has helped me navigate difficulties in my life that were really weighing me down. I feel strengthened now because of our sessions and have addressed and worked through a lot of challenges I was facing. I highly recommend Alexis as a counselor.
Alexis is an amazing counsellor. I've been working with her for a few weeks now and I feel so comfortable and supported by her. I also really trust the advice and knowledge she has and shares readily with me.
Counselors listen. It’s a matter of course. And, while there can be value investing resources toward someone with receptive ears; when sitting on virtual therapy couch, I prefer clear feedback with actionable takeaways. Alexis excels in this arena.
Alexis has the ability to digest, synthesize and respond with timely insights. As someone who has a tendency to spiral into tangents and detours, Alexis identifies when the ship is steering off course and deftly returns the talk to what matters most.
After unexpected illnesses and deaths in the family, I felt unmoored and struggled to find focus and a real sense of purpose at home and work. Alexis’s clear and well-structured to-dos helped me develop tools and relearn how to prioritize which, in turn, has enabled me to navigate away from unproductive/unhealthy patterns of procrastination.
Alexis comes with my highest recommendation.
Alexis is very supportive and understands and empathizes with your situation and tells you the truth. Alexis is very professional
Working with Alex over the last 6 months has been really helpful to my mental health. She has helped to give me a new perspective on many things and always shows up to our appointments without judgement. I feel safe sharing how I am feeling or what I am thinking with Alex and I always leave the appointments feeling clearer and lighter.
Alexis is great! She allows a really open space to talk about whatever I need to, gives me tools to help me move in the right direction and always makes sure to check in between our sessions. She holds me accountable to do the work for myself and supporte me through it.
I have never tried therapy before, but the last couple of months working with Alexis has truly changed the way I think and react to situations for the better. I feel very comfortable sharing my insecurities with Alexis and she gives me the tools and perspective I need to manage my thoughts and anxieties. She is very insightful and and I always leave our sessions with constructive feedback to put into practice.
Alexis is a wonderful person and I always feel confident in sharing my thoughts with her. She offers a lot of positivity and always makes me crack a smile or laugh when we talk while still providing her professional advice in a supportive and encouraging manner. I’m thankful I was paired with Alexis as she is helping me through tough times fighting loneliness and self esteem issues and offers genuine reassurance and motivation to improve.
My time talking with Alexis has been been a transformative experience as she brought me through processing my emotions and properly countering my unhealthy thinking habits. She is extremely approachable, professional, and straight forward; providing the most accepting and comfortable atmosphere to work through issues.
I look forward to my time with Alexis each week because she gives excellent advice that has improved my relationship and overall happiness! She is down to earth and open minded, which made it easy for me to feel comfortable talking to her; this is important to me because I have a hard time opening up to people if I feel like I’m being judged.
You are lucky if you have Alexis helping you on your journey to wellness!
I love Alexis! She is so flexible with our sessions and is a great listener. She provides the necessary tools to help with the anxiety. She really cares and I can appreciate how genuine she is. Thanks Alexis! I really appreciate you and I hope you can see this message
I matched with Alex 3 months ago at a time where I felt like I was barely hanging on by a thread and could barely perform basic functions without bawling my eyes out. She helped me face all my traumas, fears and anxieties head on and in such a short amount of time, that I feel like I can conquer anything! She is quick and gets things done, but is also so friendly, respectful and patient. Each session felt like I was talking to an trusted old friend. I would definitely recommend Alex to anyone! Thanks again for all your help :)
Having Alexis guide me through the last few months has been great. She's really listened to me and helped me with her insights, as well as having a good laugh! I've definitely been able to progress with my relationship and family loss and I trust her completely. I'll always comeback to her for help if I need any.
I've been speaking with Alexis for a couple of months now and have already made more progress than I could have imagined I would. She's professional yet friendly and makes speaking about uncomfortable things feel natural. I look forward to continuing our work!
Alexis is amazing!
Alexis has been a wonderful support to me over the last few months while dealing with a close family member's illness. She provides excellent advice and has really helped me to cope during this time. She is a great listener and has taught me really useful coping mechanisms that have helped me so much.
Alexis is by far someone I trust and respect! She listens and always knows what to say to lift my spirits! I can tell her anything and enjoy my sessions with her! I will come back to BetterHelp cuz of her and her expertise. Thank you Alexis for helping me through dark times!
It’s only been 3 sessions but wow, these 3 weeks have been transformative. Big part of it is due to Alexis and how she guided me in clearing my confusing habits and knowing how to stand up for myself (which is great for everyone in the end). For example, she helped me navigate my relationship with my cofounders. My flip flopping mind and how I need to say yes when I want to say yes, and no/ I’m not ready to make decision at this moment — and say it and mean it. Alexis challenges me when I was gonna “go back” or “undo” my action that I meant from my heart, even if I felt ashamed afterwards. She is helping me get back to my essence that has no sides as to good or bad. Just is.
I reached out to BetterHelp in the peak time just as I was about to have difficult conversations with people. So grateful for being assigned to Alexis.
Alexis is amazing. I honestly almost gave up on therapy after going through multiple counsellors both in person and on this app. She’s such a great listener and gives some outstanding advice. I feel a sense of comfort sharing my thoughts and feelings with her and I always feel better after we speak. I’m genuinely so happy with her and I feel so much better day to day because of her. Thank you so much Alexis
Alexis has been really helpful. She is a great listener and I am confident in her skills to help people. My mental health has improved tremendously. I am forever grateful for my experience with her.
Alexis is kind and compassionate. She always follows up and is very supportive.
Very responsive and respectful. Alexis offered great insight and was a good listener.
Alexis was so lovely to speak to and helped me set goals as well as validating my emotions and helping me to work through them. I’ve loved our sessions and all the support she’s given me.
Alexis was very helpful. She was there when I just needed to vent, but also provided very useful insight and suggestions on stress management. She was also extremely accommodating to my schedule and always made time for me.
Alexis is full of empathy and is very honest in the best way. She reminds you to take care of yourself and guides you in that processes. She actively listens and you can tell she is there with you and for you.
Alexis has been incredibly supportive throughout each of our sessions. She gives me plenty of time to talk through what I'm going through and provides wonderful feedback and encourages me in areas I need while maintaining a professional relationship.
Even though I only had one session with Alexis I left it feeling very encouraged and impacted. She is very quick to respond to texts in between sessions, and encourages to send voicenote, or journal entries. During our session i felt at ease and comfortable. She was patient and very helpful in asking the right questions in order to help me better communicate my needs. Her advice was sound and practical. An all in all A1 therapist :). She's amazing. Thank you Alexis for everything!
I had a great experience working with Alexis. I came in very anxious and a little lost and she was able to give me actionable steps to take (and test) to ease my anxiety. What I liked about working with her was that she asked from the beginning what I wanted to get out of the sessions with her and then adjusted her approach accordingly. My anxiety has eased greatly over the time working with her - and what I appreciate is that she set me up for future success.
Alexis is the best therapist I could I wish for to help me right now. She is always present and available. I trust her fully and I am so glad I met her, she is helping me turn my life around. Literally.
I’m grateful to have had Alexis to help me through my situation. She made things easier to manage. Alexis is very attentive and strives to find the best way for one to understand and feel things differently. She is always available, even when out of session. I’m glad we had our conversations.
Alexis is sincerely the best. I am always hesitant to start with a new therapist but Alexis always makes me feel safe and very supported. I’d recommend her to anyone.
I am thankful to have Alexis to talk to each week. She relates to her patients by meeting them where they’re at, as well as helpfully employing CBT. She feels like a safe place to unload and I always leave our chats feeling lighter and more hopeful. I would definitely recommend her to a friend.
Excellent advice for me when I was going through a divorce and had many other things on top. I cannot recommend her more. Very useful. Just what the doctor had ordered.
After a few cessions with Alexis, I can say she seems understanding of my needs and competent. She's oriented towards my goals, which is what I wanted. I look forward to work further together. I am pretty sure it will continue to go well and to bring me the help I was after.
Alexis is a wonderful councilor. She is always there to listen. She answers swiftly and with care.
Thank you for your services!
This has been my first experience trying out any sort of therapy, and having Alexis as my counselor has made the experience all the more positive and comfortable. I've been working with Alexis for a month and working through some trying times, and she's been there for me through the ups and downs. With her, I feel safe, comfortable, and not embarrassed in expressing myself, venting, and processing what I'm going through. She also provides actionable techniques on working through emotions to ultimately heal that have been very helpful, and I couldn't have asked for a better counseling experience.
I’ve tried counseling multiple times throughout the year and throughout my life… There’s just something better about this app and the way it’s set up! It makes me feel comfortable and able to process my emotions comfortably in my own home
