Alexis is a neuropsychology Psychometric Technician at Mindful Assessments and Psychological Services. She graduated from Rutgers University in 2016 with a BA in Exercise Science and Psychology. She earned her MSEd in School Psychology and PsyD in School-Clinical Psychology from Pace University. In her final year of graduate school, she completed her predoctoral internship at Rutgers University Behavioral Healthcare located in Newark, NJ.

Since her undergraduate years, Alexis has gained experience working in a variety of mental health settings. She has worked in public schools, community mental health centers, hospitals, and clinics; and, has worked in outpatient, partial hospitalizations, and inpatient hospital settings. Throughout her training, she has provided therapy and assessment services to individuals across the lifespan. She enjoys helping others work through their difficulties and has gained experience working with individuals with anxiety, depression, trauma histories, and family conflict.

In addition to her clinical work, Alexis has worked on multiple research labs examining the role of childhood trauma on quality of life in adulthood, the importance of parent-child play on developmental/academic outcomes, the effect of technology on child development, and the impact of childhood trauma on psychological functioning in adolescence. In her leisure time, Alexis enjoys spending time with her family and friends, cooking, baking, and finding new restaurants to try. At times it can be difficult to navigate challenges that one may face, but with collaboration from a provider who is empathetic and understanding, it is possible to work through one’s difficulties. I am dedicated to helping uplift, empower, and support others. Whether it be through therapy or assessment, I strive to create a space for my clients to be seen and heard, all while taking steps towards building confidence, resiliency, self-awareness, and coping skills.

Through the use of humor, compassion, and the integration of multiple therapy styles, I aim to foster a supportive and nonjudgmental therapeutic environment that welcomes the exploration of underlying dynamics as well as present day stressors. I believe that no two people are alike therefore my use of an integrative approach allows for each individual’s needs/concerns to be met in a way that is specially adapted for that person using evidence-based interventions. My aim is to help you reach your goals.
