I (Alexis Van Acker), attained a Bachelor's Degree in Psychology from Humboldt State University, and a Master's degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Hope International University. I am currently a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist through the state of Idaho. I am Licensed in the state of California as well.
I enjoy working with many different people. I have worked with individuals, couple's, families, and in group settings. I have experience in working with Depression, Anxiety, PTSD, adjustment and developmental struggles, gender dysphoria and gender questions, and interpersonal conflict. I mostly work from a Cognitive-Behavioral Theory lens, but I incorporate a multitude of other theories such as Structural Family Therapy, Internal Family Systems, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and Experiential Therapy. I also have training in The Gottman Method Couple's Therapy and Eye-Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy.
