Licensed Professional Counselor / Clinical Supervisor
I am Lexi Meinhold and I am the clinical supervisor at Sherlin Consulting Group providing clinical oversight to Katie Petersen and Katie Defer.
I was born and raised in Phoenix, AZ. I moved to Tempe, AZ to attend Arizona State University (ASU) where I majored in Special Education. I worked for several years with students with severe/profound disabilities. I completed my Master of Counseling degree at ASU while working at St. Luke’s Young Adult Program as a counselor and a teacher. While at St. Luke’s I worked as a Level 3 counselor and was part of the staff that founded Arizona Youth for Change (AYC) where I was a family therapist, program manager, intake coordinator and occasional bus driver! After AYC I worked for the City of Tempe Social Services Division as a Drug and Alcohol Prevention Counselor at 2 local high schools.
My next adventure was discovering Neurofeedback. Alberto Texidor, PhD, called and asked if I wanted to work with Neurofeedback. I said yes, which has led to the most amazing part of my professional career. I have spent the last 10 years learning something new about the human brain and its impact on behavior. It continues to be a driving force in my life (Just ask my handsome husband or either of my 2 amazing kids).
Following, I taught Behavioral, Mental and social Health at East Valley Institute for Technology, Mesa, AZ. The goal of the class was to prepare high school seniors for a career in mental health. The course was dual enrolled at Mesa Community College as Introduction to Psychology. This allowed me to review how much progress has been made in integrating an understanding of the impact of Brain Health on Mental Health.
Most recently I have found a passion in equipping the next generation of new counselors. While I still see a few clients myself most of my professional efforts are now providing clinical oversight and guidance through supervision to pre-licensed and associate licensed counselors.
