Alexis Maron, M.A., RDT
With her love of performance art firmly in place when she began acting at age five, Alexis has since harnessed that passion to become a Registered Drama Therapist and is using the exciting therapeutic practice to change lives wherever she goes.
Alexis graduated from UCLA in 2003 and from NYU in 2010, where she earned her M.A. in Drama Therapy. While in New York, she worked with at-risk high school students, the homeless and mentally disordered, and adults battling drug addiction. Since returning to California and beginning her practice, she has facilitated a ground-breaking Drama Therapy program for adults with down syndrome at the Down Syndrome Association of Orange County, and is currently conducting group therapy at several prominent addiction treatment facilities including Promises Treatment Center in LA, California, Simple Recovery in Orange County, and Thrive Treatment Center in Santa Monica where she has been using Psychodrama as well as other Drama Therapy techniques to aid those suffering from alcohol, drug, and sex/love addictions.
She has been a featured speaker at the Center For Healthy Sex in Los Angeles and also teaches an introductory Drama Therapy class for high school seniors at the renowned Orange County School of the Arts.
She also offers private and independent group sessions, and has begun work on her first book about her experiences utilizing drama therapy's powerful techniques due out in 2017.
