ABOUT ALEXIS

 THERAPIST 

Welcome!

                       

 

 

My name is Alexis Tarr. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker serving the Houston community. I utilize a client-centered and strengths focus approach to therapy. As an empathic person, it is a natural part of the therapeutic process. Additionally, I believe that we all have the ability to achieve the goals we set for ourselves. As your therapist, I will guide you along this journey. My former clients have described our therapy process as encouraging and motivating. 

 

I specialize in providing cognitive-behavioral interventions, coupled with dialectical behavioral therapy and narrative therapy concepts. I have worked with clients experiencing a variety of mental health diagnoses. In addition, I can provide therapy to those experiencing trauma, interpersonal conflicts, gender identity crises, anger/mood dysregulation, grief, and so much more.

 

WORK EXPERIENCE

I have experience working with a variety of client populations, including adolescents, adults, older adults, families, groups, and couples. I have several years of experience providing mental health therapy, including in inpatient and outpatient settings. This has given me the tools to continue providing therapy and improve the quality of therapeutic services. In addition to private therapy practice, I currently work in leadership at a local organization providing mental health services to the community. 

EDUCATION AND TRAINING 

I obtained my Bachelor of Social Work degree from Lamar University. Following, I went on to obtain my Master of Social Work degree from University of Texas at Arlington with a focus in clinical practice with children and families. This was followed by a clinical internship at a local shelter for women and children experiencing domestic violence. Additionally, I have obtained advanced trainings in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR) and Critical Incident Stress Management (CISM). I follow the National Association of Social Workers (NASW) Code of Ethics.

ON A PERSONAL NOTE 

In my life, I always look for opportunities to have fun. I enjoy spending time with my husband, daughter, and dog. In my spare time, I enjoy eating out, going to the beach, and shopping for something new.
