Professional statement

Alexis primarily works with young adults overcoming eating disorders, disordered eating, and body image issues. She also works with clients to address anxiety, manage depression, and move through trauma. Using psychodynamic therapy, Alexis collaborates with clients to heal the relationship they have with themselves so they can flourish.

Part of Alexis’s approach involves empowering clients to consider how their self-talk impacts the way they engage with themselves and the outside world. This gives clients the tools to reframe their negative core beliefs, practice self compassion, and be a little bit kinder to themselves.

Alexis creates a collaborative, empathic space for her clients. She loves celebrating small wins with them because they add up to big steps toward self-compassion. By co-creating both short and long term goals, Alexis’ clients ultimately feel better about their self image, moving closer toward wellness, and ultimately achieving self acceptance.


Message to clients

Because of society’s negative messaging around food, for many people, eating has become a source of stress and shame, instead of something to savor and share. It’s time to feed yourself a different narrative.

Many of my clients are in eating disorder recovery—from people who are just beginning to acknowledge a negative relationship with food, to those who have been working through their issues for years. I also work with clients to overcome anxiety and depression symptoms, or who’ve experienced trauma. Together, we’ll uncover the root of these issues and identify coping skills for moving forward.

Therapy with me is a collaboration. Whether you’re looking to improve your relationship with food, heal from a negative experience, or manage anxiety, I want you to feel seen and validated during our time together so you can fully show up as yourself.

Learning to love all of the parts of yourself is a lifelong process, so I work with clients to set realistic goals and take small steps toward wellness. My vision is for you to understand the patterns that influence your relationships and beliefs about yourself so you can develop new coping skills and thrive.
