Hi! I’m Alexa Stallings
I help insecure young adults and teens who are facing relationship and communication issues, learn new strategies to feel empowered inside their relationships.
I’m a Graduate Marriage and Family Therapist Intern at Replenish Her Counseling
If I could speak to the younger version of myself, I would say, “All of your big feelings and big passions and big sensitivities are not flaws. They are superpowers.”
Here is what I mean. When you have the capacity to feel big, it gives you the insight to see and know when others are hurting. It provides you with the courage to draw near to those who are hurting. It allows you the empathy to feel with others as they hurt.
Because these big feelings can be draining and overwhelming, so many individuals don’t know how to cope with their big feelings and sensitivities. They distance themselves from others in order to lessen the intensity, but then inevitably become isolated and depressed.
I want my clients to learn how to better take care of themselves so that they can feel close to others without feeling flooded and overwhelmed by their big emotions. It is my desire to create a space where clients learn ways to love this part of themselves, while also striving to deepen their toolbox of self-care strategies.
After concluding counseling with me, I most want my clients to feel empowered in their relationships, hopeful for their futures, resilient in the face of adversities, and at peace with their truest selves.
I am passionate about working with…
My professional career started after I received my Bachelor's in English with a minor in Music from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. I worked at a publishing company, Prescription Songs, as an A&R assistant. It is located in Nashville and focuses primarily on pop music.
I then worked as a Neurofeedback technician and Assistant Clinical Director at Tennessee Neurofeedback. Tennessee Neurofeedback is a mental health clinic in Brentwood that administers brain mapping and neurofeedback.
Currently, I am working towards a Master's in Marriage and Family Therapy at Trevecca Nazarene University. I am under the Supervision of Vanessa Davis at Replenish Her as well as the Supervising professors inside my MFT program. I am being trained in utilizing a variety of therapeutic modalities, including CBT, ACT, and Attachment-Based approaches.
While, Replenish Her does not offer Neurofeedback, it’s important to note that I have the unique experience of having completed certification as a Neurofeedback Technologist (BCN-T) and a QEEG Technologist Certification (QEEG-T). This certification has given me a solid foundation in understanding the brain and the unique ways it impacts our mental health and functioning.
Outside of my internship, I enjoy spending time with friends and family, playing with my nephews, being by water, the lake, hiking, walking, running, dancing, writing, going to concerts, and listening to music
