Alexis Combs portraitTherapeutic Style: My therapeutic approach primarily integrates person-centered and emotion-focused approaches while viewing students through a strength-based, systemic and multicultural lens. Moreover, I tailor my approach and interventions based on student needs and work in collaboration with my students to determine treatment goals and build hope for the future. I prioritize a safe, comfortable environment that supports students’ exploration while working toward increased insight and improved well-being.

Professional Interests: My professional training has given me the opportunity for a variety of experiences. I have experience in several areas of education, community-based mental health clinics, private practice and partial hospitalization programs for the treatment of eating disorders. My areas of professional interest include navigating relationships, adjustment and transitions, identity development and trauma.

Group and Liaison Roles: I have experience leading process oriented and skill-based groups focusing on eating disorders, animal-assisted therapy, anxiety and panic, family issues and emotional wellness.

Educational Background: I earned a bachelor’s degree in psychology with a minor in pre-professional health from The University at Brockport. I am a doctoral candidate in a clinical/school psychology Psy.D. program at Roberts Wesleyan University.

DEIA Trainings: Gender Identity, Neurodiversity, Racial/Ethnic Identity, Religion/Spirituality and Sexual Identity.
