The heart can express through creativity what the mouth cannot articulate through words.

After being first introduced to the Oasis ministry in 2015 during a short-term vision trip, Alexa felt God’s prompting to return as an intern in 2017. She joined the missionary staff on the Oasis Families Together team for a one-year commitment in 2018. Alexa has worked alongside the psychologists and social workers as a counseling assistant and has provided creative therapy support by working directly with the girls. She is answering God’s call to serve for another two years.

Alexa was born and raised in Grandville, Michigan. She earned her B.A. in Social Work with a minor in Spanish and is currently pursuing her Master of Arts in Counseling online. When not painting, dancing, or creating with the girls in therapy sessions, she enjoys spending time with friends and family, going on adventures, creating through a variety of artistic mediums, playing music, and reading a good book.

Alexa believes in the power of creative expression in the healing process of childhood trauma. In her work with the girls, she implements her education and training, as well as her natural ability and passion for creativity. She considers it an incredible privilege to walk alongside the girls at the Oasis as they express, process, and heal.

“For we are God’s masterpiece. He created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things He planned for us long ago.”Ephesians 2:10
