Background and Experience
Lexi provides therapy for all ages. She is passionate about helping her clients through processing life events, anxiety, depression, self-worth, shame, grief, intrusive thoughts, interpersonal issues, and feelings of disconnection. Lexi has worked in the private practice setting for the entirety of her counseling career.
The concept that she primarily operates from is Emotion Focused Individual Therapy. This model emphasizes that the basis of distress for humans is found in the absence of attachment to ourselves and others. We are wired for connection. Connection helps us get unstuck from behaviors that have become unhelpful, and get rebalanced with our ability to emotionally regulate. This helps clients move forward and choreograph their lives in a way that aligns with their values. While this is the main modem that she uses, she also incorporates therapy practice concepts from Person-Centered Therapy and Existential Therapy. The overlapping commonalities within these techniques is that the client is the expert on their experience.
My role in our time together is to provide a space of acceptance and compassion. In this space, I can help my clients identify their emotions and grow in their capacity to experience the depth of them. In sessions, we will regularly unveil coping mechanisms that have gotten the client stuck. Counseling is the microcosm where we can relearn how to trust and engage with ourselves and others, while also facing conflicts head on. This helps us to better engage in life the way we want. My utmost priority of counseling is to empower my clients to understand themselves, connect with others, and feel competent in their life. Everyone is capable. Everyone is worthy.
