Alexis Smith, APCC


Alexis is an Associate Professional Clinical Counselor who is passionate about supporting BIPOC adults within the LGBTQ+ community. As an openly queer therapist, Alexis is skilled at supporting clients within an affirming space to recognize, explore and accept their own queer identity and navigate the myriad of challenges that come along with queerness. Her therapy style, rooted in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, utilizes humor, Gestalt principles, aspects of astrology, focuses on attachment and inner child healing and is tailored to meet the specific needs of each unique person. She communicates with a human-forward approach that feels down-to-earth, relatable across generations and balances validation and accountability. Through close, collaborative focus, she will support you to explore past experiences, the root of self-limiting beliefs, your relationships and present moment needs in order to deepen your self-compassion, ability to regulate and reach better alignment. 

Alexis graduated from CSUN with a masters degree in Counseling (specialization in College Counseling & Student Services) and completed the Professional Clinical Counseling program. Her professional background spans across agency, private practice and higher education settings. As both the Clinical Development Director and Graduate Internship Program Director for WOC Therapy, she enjoys having the privilege of creating more BIPOC representation in the field and providing direct mentorship to young clinicians just breaking into the world of mental health.
