Alexis Leechford, LMSW

¬†Alexis’ Experience

I am a Licensed Master Social Worker actively working towards my clinical licensure under the supervision of Bonnie Barclay, LCSW. I have 5 years experience working in the mental health field. I obtained my undergraduate degree from Appalachian State University and my graduate degree from North Carolina State University. I have clinical experience working in several settings including community-based mental health centers, university wellness programs, crisis services, and correction/reentry programs. I strive to provide a warm space for individuals to experience support and assistance navigating life’s many challenges. I enjoy partnering with adolescents and young adults to address major life transitions into adulthood, social issues, self-esteem, and relationship difficulties.

My Approach & Values

I pull from a multitude of evidence-based practices including Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Prolonged Exposure (PE), Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) to help individuals meet their goals. I provide a non-judgemental and inclusive environment by holding space for individuals to explore their strengths, experiences, and areas of growth.
