Relationships are like mirrors. With every moment, they reveal us, they reflect us, and they can definitely expose our flaws! And the truth is, relationships can break when we are not careful with the way we treat each other.
Your relationship can’t just hang on the wall somewhere, getting passed by and collecting dust.
It requires work, attention, and skills. But if you’re willing to put in the work, you’ll start to love what is reflected back to you!
Developing and maintaining a healthy relationship isn’t easy, but it is rewarding. Based on decades of studies that reveal what works (and what doesn’t) in relationships, I can help you and your partner develop skills that are highly effective in creating the relationship that you deserve… the type of relationship looks great in the mirror!
Sometimes you’ll laugh, sometimes you’ll cry…but you’ll be happy you chose Alexis! Her down-to-earth, relaxed style makes it easy for her clients to open up about the struggles they are going through.
Relationships can be messy. One day they can bring out the best in us, the next day the worst in us. Alexis has a unique ability to attune to the core issues while also finding humor and humanness in relationships.
When selecting a therapist to entrust your relationship, it’s important to find one that has the ability to be both compassionate and direct. That’s exactly what you’ll get with Alexis. She’s compassionate, understanding, caring and she won’t beat around the bush when it comes to the things that are getting in the way of having the relationship you really want!
