Living with a mental illness is like living in the bottom of a very deep, dark scene, you're always trying to find your way to the surface. And, this person said, you know, I wish that the healthcare system was the type of system where they would jump out of a boat, swim to the bottom of the sea, grab your hand and guide you up to the surface. He said, unfortunately, it's not that way they sit in the boat, they feed you lures like medication to superficially bring you to the surface. So, you have no idea how you got there, it won't last forever, because once you let go of that, you will go back down to the bottom.

So many people think that that's the way it is, I'm stuck, you know, I take medication for anxiety, and that's just you know, what I have to do, but there's a totally different world out there, that I have used my own life to have my own self healer, to really see like, I can change and be whoever I want on this planet. It just takes a bit of work to get there in especially in the society that we live in today, you know.

Alexa Rae Schiefer 32:46

I think I just want every woman or every person listening to this just to remember that you deserve to have a life that you love, like you deserve're worthy of that and that you all have what's inside of you to actually create that and that's the biggest message I want anyone to hear in this world.



Alexa Rae (she/her) is known online as the “Authenticity Healer” and woman who decided to shake up the healing game in mental health. Her full first name is Alexa Rae and she used to go by Alexa until Amazon stole her name. Now she goes by “Alexa Rae” or “A. Rae” for short. She is living her purpose on earth to help as many women as possible connect to their authentic selves. She is renowned for her ability to deeply connect with women, help them see their worth, and for being a down-to-earth healer.

A client once said, “When Alexa cares about you, you’re a lucky and blessed person. Just alone hearing the genuine hurt in her voice and the genuine expression on her face and in her words of how connected she is that you feel a certain way. I don’t know how to describe it.. but it is not something I have experienced many times in my life. Words describing it could not really begin to explain it. She is intuitive. She is supportive. She is a role model. She is love.”

In her former life, Alexa Rae was a professional mental health clinician who worked in a variety of areas - acute mental health, trauma, forensics, eating disorders, adolescents, education, and more. She left this realm as she struggled with working in a field full of gaps in healing and wanted to shake up the mental health game. Since quitting her career to follow her purpose, she has gone on to help hundreds of women reconnect with who they are meant to be on this planet and heal the relationship with themselves and their bodies.

Alexa Rae has travelled the country speaking to women at various events, is a part-time professor in a mental health and substance use graduate program where she educates the up and coming clinicians to approach mental health differently, and runs a podcast called “Authentically You.”

Core purpose/passion: I want EVERY woman to feel worthy on this planet and that is what drives me.
