Who I Am

My name is Lexy Thompson with BrightLife Counseling and I am a licensed professional counselor. I’ve been working with people to help them live the lives they want for over 12 years. I work with people to manage moods and feelings, move through grief and trauma, recover from substance use and addiction, and improve relationships.

 

I am sex-positive and have experience working with people in many kinds of relationships including non-monogamous ones. I support and identify with the LGBTQ community. I believe you deserve to feel empowered in your world, to discover what you want your life to be, and to have the tools and support to live the life that is right for you.

 

I think mental health care is too hard to access, too slow, and too expensive. I want to make therapy convenient and affordable for everyone who wants help making changes for themselves.  Before you decide if you want to work with me, schedule a consultation (it’s free!) using the online appointment booking at the bottom of this page. You can also start a secure chat with me using the chat icon/window on the bottom right of this page. I look forward to meeting you!

I don’t accept insurance for my services at this time; I am able to keep my fees low due to not having any overhead costs related to accepting and billing insurance for services. I provide invoices for services that can be used by clients to get reimbursement from their insurance companies in many cases. Please contact me to discuss fees for counseling services.
