  • alexis schofield

    My therapeutic approach utilizes Narrative and Strength Based approaches. I strive to bring a compassionate and hopeful presence during the therapy process. I care deeply about developing a strong therapeutic relationship where my clients feel seen, heard, and understood. I work empathetically and collaboratively to help clients identify underlying beliefs, harmful thought patterns, and narratives that may be impacting their life currently. We will also work on utilizing strengths, building self esteem, experiencing self acceptance, and building a sense of purpose. My goal is to support and equip clients with tools to work towards their goals and the life they desire.

    professional skills and spiritual gifts to help bring healing by giving voice to those who have been silenced and experienced brokenness. Her service in youth, women, and music ministries laid a foundation for her call as a Pastor’s wife to her husband of 37 years. She is also an accomplished Human Resources professional with 25+ years of experience and is a “people person” who relates well to individuals from all walks of life. Her life mantra is to sit with people through their best and worst, being fully present for those she is supporting. 

     

    She utilizes Person-Centered Therapy and employs an empathetic connection to walk alongside others to help them achieve their maximum potential. She has a heart for leaders and those who serve in ministry, particularly Pastor’s wives and others who are silently or outwardly dealing with unspoken emotional pain. Her desire is to see those who are hurting overcome issues, trauma and debilitating emotions and obtain healing and wellness in every area of their lives.
