Alexis Moring is a licensed marriage and family therapy candidate. This means that she has completed all of her education (Alexis earned a Master of Science degree in Human Development and Family Science with an emphasis in Marriage and Family Therapy from the Oklahoma State University), has passed the state licensing exam, and is completing the required amount of hours of being supervised so that she can be independently licensed by the state of Oklahoma.
Alexis provides mental health counseling to clients in Broken Arrow and the Tulsa metro area. Alexis is skilled at counseling individuals, couples, and especially families who have been affected by trauma, depression, anxiety, chronic pain, and chronic health problems, including counseling for clients undergoing active cancer treatment. Additionally, her personal experience of having immediate family members who are first responders gives her a unique perspective to counsel first responders and their families to help them manage the stress of their jobs.
Alexis completed internships at the Cancer Treatment Center of America and the Center for Family Services in Stillwater. Her training, education, and experience have provided her with a strong background in marital, individual, couple, group, and family therapy. She has also worked in both clinical and hospital settings.
Alexis utilizes integrative systemic therapy (IST). Her perspective on the “whole person” and recognition that all psychotherapy occurs within a bio-psychosocial spiritual context allows her to see the world differently and approach therapy from a circular causality perspective. Holding this type of “systems” perspective also allows her to understand the importance of spiritual integration in treatment and her training has equipped her to integrate spirituality in an ethical manner. Additionally, Alexis uses cognitive-behavioral therapy techniques within her integrative systemic therapy.
Throughout her training, Alexis consistently strived to provide her clients with the highest possible quality of care. It is important to her to stay up to date with research-based treatment strategies and strive for cultural competence in her treatment.
