Alexi Bohling, MS, LMFT
From a young age, I knew I wanted to help people especially those who struggled to find a voice for themselves. This led me to pursue a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from Wichita State University and a Master of Science in Marriage and Family Therapy from Friends University. During my clinical work, I practiced in a variety of settings including faith-based, university, and private practice. In my post graduate work, I have been in community mental health assisting developmentally disabled adults and their support systems experiencing a crisis.
As a trained marriage and family therapist, I am able to assist couples and families through premarital, marital, couples, or family therapy. I am also trained to treat a variety of behavioral health disorders and issues with individuals.
I enjoy working collaboratively with clients to identify issues and goals in order to determine the best course of treatment and develop a treatment plan. I see the most progress with clients who are ready to talk about change or ready to create change in their relationships, families, or individual life. However, clients who are not sure what issues may exist but are open to exploring unhappy/dysfunctional parts of their life is a great start.
I most frequently use Cognitive Behavioral, Solution Focused, and Narrative Therapies as well as mindfulness techniques when working with individuals. With couples, I find Emotionally Focused Therapy and Gottman Method to be most effective as well as incorporating other tools into treatment (Couple’s Communication, Prepare and Enrich). For families, I utilize Structural and Bowen Family Therapies.
I look forward to hearing your story and working collaboratively to reach your goals.
