Hi, I’m Alexis.

Hi, I’m Alexis and I’m a holistic mental health therapist, also known as the Underdog’s Ally.

A Little About Me

I guide my clients who feel disempowered stop trying to escape their pain so that they can heal the parts of themselves that they hate and feel more self-love and self-acceptance to navigate life like a boss. I know what it’s like to wake up wishing you were someone else. Being born with a stutter, I spent many years wishing I could talk like normal people and hating myself. I never felt good enough and I wished I was more confident, pretty and fearless. Alcohol and drugs didn’t really help as they ended up making me feel worse. Trying to be perfect and pretend like everything was fine made me feel alone. When I decided to swing to the opposite end of the pendulum and act like I didn’t give a shit about anything, my life imploded (enter a short stay in a lovely Honolulu jail here).

While there are lots of ways to just manage the pain and help you cope, my goal is to help you learn how to both tolerate and heal your own emotional and psychological pain so that you can feel the ultimate power of being your own healer so the ground doesn’t come out from under you every time something hard happens.
