Alexus is passionate about working with individuals, partners, and the LGBTQIA+ community struggling with gender identity, sexual orientation, and infidelity. She uses empathy, compassion, and playfulness to facilitate a mind, body, soul connection. Through the utilization of inter-systems theory, taking interventions from mindfulness, somatic experiencing, and Gestalt therapy, Alexus guides her clients toward reconnecting with their authentic renegade spirit.

Alexus received her Master’s degree in Clinical Psychology with an emphasis in Marriage and Family Therapy from Pepperdine University. She holds a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology along with a certificate in LGBT Studies from Arizona State University. Alexus is currently pursuing a doctorate in Human Sexuality where her dissertation will focus on the lived experiences of gender nonbinary individuals.

Alexus is a partner, sister, daughter, friend, cat mom, renegade, and moon lover. Most of the time you can find her dancing, whether that is out with friends, in a class, or in a grocery store. She believes our bodies were made to move and finds dancing connects her to her truest self.
