About Me

Alexis Arzuaga Is Proudly Offering In-Person And Online Therapy In North And South Carolina, Serving Out Of Chapel HIll

My goal and vision for Clarion Nous was and is to support individuals who are having difficulty facing life’s barriers and reaching their goals. Through various life experiences (personal and professional), I have found that many individuals struggle not because they are incapable of overcoming life’s challenges but because they do not have the support and/or encouragement they need. I believe that as humanity becomes “busier”, life becomes more complicated, affecting relationships and how individuals see themselves fitting in the world. Life is full of complicated events that are difficult to overcome, especially without support. Ultimately, these difficulties distract individuals from pursuing what is essential and meaningful. To help individuals reach their goals, I provide a place of understanding and honest feedback. In addition, I hope that through collaboration, I can challenge an individual's current coping mechanisms so that they gain awareness of what is preventing them from achieving their goals safely. My goal is to encourage individuals to find their internal resources and strengths and work towards their intended life goals. 

As we work together in the first session, we can find the best approach to meet your goals safely. I am a Nationally Certified Counselor. I am also licensed in the State of North Carolina as a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor and a Licensed Clinical Addictions Specialist-Associate and as a Professional Counselor Telehealth Provider for the State of South Carolina. I earned an undergraduate degree from the Pontifical Catholic University of Puerto Rico and a Master of Divinity from Duke University. I earned my Master of Arts Degree in Counseling from Wake Forest University. 

I am also a clinically trained chaplain who worked with medical and allied health providers, individual patients, and their families in hospital/clinical and residential settings. I have completed and participated in various trauma-informed and focused training programs. I have completed the Trauma Informed Professional Practice (TIPP) training program through the University of North Carolina - Greensboro. I am a Master Level Practitioner of Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART). I also utilize other brain-based healing modalities rooted in neuroscience to help the individual process and/or resolve the debilitating effects of trauma. 

I am also a Trauma Resolution Practitioner and utilize brain-based healing modalities such as The Cortina Method (TCM) - an experiential process that utilizes the latest neuroscience concepts and provides individuals with profound positive transformation, removes painful and debilitating emotions, and replaces them with excitement for the future.

In short, my approach is to utilize a combination of neuroscience-informed brief methodologies that heal and resolve trauma and its associated responses. Our goal for developing this method was to provide a genuinely brief (within one session) methodology for those who work in settings where time and financial resources might not be readily available. Our training is for mental health providers, school counselors, life and wellness coaches, peer support specialists, and chaplains/pastors.

Lastly, I am honored to work with and collaborate with a couple of non-profit organizations that provide services to veterans and their family members such as Fairways for Warriors and Operation Red Wings Foundation, to provide trauma-informed care to the organization's members.

Depending on the individual's interests, needs, and resources, I provide three programs from which an individual can choose. These programs are coaching, consulting, and counseling. Click here for a free Discovery Call and determine the best fit for your goals and needs.
