Clinical Social Work/Therapist, LCSW, SEP
Feel cared for and heard, experience a safe and authentic connection, find clarity, heal from a past or more recent traumatic event. As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Somatic Experiencing Practitioner, and Mindfulness Practitioner and Educator, I offer a person-centered, holistic approach to healing. In addition to traditional talk therapy, I work with the body and the nervous system, where our survival instincts and behavioral impulses begin. This work includes understanding how our earliest experiences in life create the implicit, behavioral patterns that we can potentially carry with us for a lifetime.
The guiding tenets of my work include authenticity, compassion, and the creation of a safe environment that is necessary for deep healing and lasting change.
I am available to meet in person with individuals living in or near San Francisco. For anyone residing in other areas of California, I offer video sessions via a HIPAA-compliant, secure video platform. Please call for a free consultation.

When I need to refer to someone in SF Alexis is my top choice. ~Neal Winblad, LMFT
Alexis brings with her a deep sense of authentictity and compassion along with a solid clinical background which includes Pre-and Perinatal Counseling, for birith and adoptive parents, Mindfulness and Somatic Experiencing. I recommend her with confidence.
I met with Rachel for professional consultation and found her to be exceptionally warm and welcoming, attentive to my needs, empathetic and responsive. She is a very experienced therapist, and I recommend her without hesitation.
