She attended Weber State University as an undergraduate, obtaining her BS in Psychology with a minor in Criminal Justice, before continuing her graduate education as one of the first students to graduate from the Masters in Forensic Psychology – Professional Counseling degree program in December 2020. She held a leadership role in the ongoing Cinematic Serial Killer Research Project supervised by Dr. Jim Iaccino for a year, and assisted in presenting the research at residencies and also a mental health conference. She has presented as an alum, a mini-lecture virtually at TCSPP on “Autoimmune Encephalitis: What Mental Health Professionals Need to Know.” She has passed the National Counselor Exam, Jurisprudence exams, and earned her Licensed Professional Counselor Associate licence.

    Lexie completed her practicum/internship at West Florida Hospital with the adult crisis stabilization psychiatric unit.  Her main interests are in autoimmune brain disease, human development/psychopathology, neuropsychology and violent offenders. Lexie also advocates for those who suffer from Autoimmune Encephalitis through speaking on and educating those in the psychology/counseling communities of the secondary psychiatric symptoms that present in this disease, and the importance of ruling out primary medical causes of psychopathology and the complexity in treating refractory mental health problems in this population. Lexie has just over a year of experience working with adult and geriatric clientele for short-term acute psychiatric disorders in a hospital setting. Services included individual short-term therapeutic interventions, using a range of theory—from cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), rational emotive behavioral therapy (REBT), to acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), art/cognitive stimulation therapy, psychoeducation, individual therapy, and group therapy using a dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT)-based intervention in the hospital’s Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP).

    Currently Lexie takes an evidenced-based multimodal therapeutic approach influenced by CBT, ACT, REBT, interpersonal therapy, and biological underpinnings. She aims to provide a safe space for self-paced introspection, healing, and cognitive/behavioral change and uses an array of counseling techniques based on the unique experience of clients while leaving room for flexibility of clients evolving needs.
