Alexis Maron MA, RADT, RDT, BCT
Drama Therapist/Psychodrama Facilitator
As a Drama Therapist and Psychodrama Facilitator at Lido Wellness Center (LWC), Alexis loves exercising creativity in the many ways she supports patients. Before joining the LWC team, Alexis worked for a decade in treatment centers as a Drama Therapist, specializing in substance abuse, sex and love addictions, dually diagnosed clients, and women recovering from trauma. She proudly joined the LWC team because of its wide-reaching reputation and stellar staff, eager to commit herself with the same excellence and level of care.
In her practice, she incorporates the use of Drama Therapy techniques to urge clients outside of their comfort zone by safely pushing their boundaries through the use of physical and verbal expression of their emotional experience. By providing a safe and secure place to facilitate personal growth and healing, Alexis guides patients through cultivated activities, role playing, and dramatic interactions specifically designed to promote positive behavioral changes, improve interpersonal relationships, and improve mental health and emotional well-being. One of her favorite experiences is facilitating Psychodrama scenes with her patients and witnessing the immediate resulting impact. For Alexis, the most rewarding aspect of working at LWC is being given the opportunity to thrive in such a supportive and professional environment, surrounded by a highly collaborative and skilled team and supported by the vast resources made available to LWC staff and patients.
Alexis is a proud UCLA Bruin where she received her BA in Musical Theatre. One of the highlights of her life was taking a leap of faith at 25 and moving across the country to New York City to attend New York University to earn her Master’s in Drama Therapy. In attending to self-care in her personal life, she maintains a philosophy of balance, listening to what her body needs in any given day. She makes it a priority to be active or move throughout the day by running, stretching, or working out. She also attends to her mental and emotional health by stimulating her mind with music and podcasts as a way to reward herself through relaxation. Alexis also runs a private practice in which she works primarily with individuals and couples and also facilitates a drama therapy group for adults with Down Syndrome in partnership with the Down Syndrome Association of Orange County (DSAOC). She believes that there is no perfect formula for incorporating wellness and self-care into one’s personal life, so she does her best to remind herself that every 24 hours brings something new!
