About this Service

Hello, I am Alexandra Seng, a clinical mental health counselor, who resides in mountainous Northern UT. I graduated with my masters in licensed professional counseling in May 2019 with Liberty University Online. Liberty University is a school based out of Lynchburg, VA. The program that I was enrolled in has a emphasis on both Christian and secular counseling, which I feel fortunate to have been a part of. The program provided me with an integrated Christian and secular approach, which has been beneficial in serving and helping individuals with different worldviews and preferences on faith, spirituality, religion, agnosticism, and atheism.

My BA in psychology with the emphasis in addictions and recovery, I also received with Liberty University online. As I was enrolled in this program I discovered an interest in healthy sexuality and sexual addictions. This motivated me to pursue classes on this topic for both my undergraduate and graduate degrees. It is my hope to further my training within the next year, to become certified as a sex therapist. I know that God has put this topic and specialty on my heart due to this being an under-served need in our society.

Over the past 3 years, I had the privilege to work with domestic violence, couples, substance use, mental health, and co-morbid diagnoses. Training’s that have helped me hone and develop my therapy skills involved motivational interviewing, personality disorders, acceptance and commitment therapy, Seeking Safety, suicide assessment and prevention, and couples counseling. My theoretical orientation is eclectic, and I believe in serving my clients in a therapeutic manner that is adapted and unique to them as an individual. I have experience in using a plethora of therapy skills, drawing from cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectal behavioral therapy (DBT), mindful-based cognitive behavioral therapy (MBCT), trauma-informed care, and acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT). My personal favorites are ACT, trauma-informed and person-centered therapy styles.

Prior to starting my journey as a therapist, I cooked professionally for a living. I received an associates in culinary arts from Le Cordon Bleu, Las Vegas, NV. I have a passion for a cooking and this led me to work in the hospitality and culinary industry. At first I thought that it would be part of my life’s work to go back to school as a nutritionist and dietitian but God had other plans in mind to be a therapist. Although, I do not cook professionally anymore for a living, it continues to be my favorite past-time. In addition to cooking I have a knack for poetry and writing, documentaries, as well as for worship and praise music. These are essential to my self-care!

A little bit of background from my personal history, aside from academia and jobs, I was a military brat that lived overseas. I was born and raised in Europe, having spend most of my teenage and childhood years in Germany. I learned the German language and was raised in the culture. Other countries I lived in were the UK, and Okinawa, Japan. When I was 17 years old I moved to the United States. It was a big culture shock from the small country I grew up in!

Lastly, on a more important note, I have a love for God and His purpose for my life. I became a Christian ten years ago, and life has not been the same since. For many years I struggled with meaning and purpose, and tried to find what could provide that for me. I suffered from my own codependency, unhealthy sexuality, intimate partner violence, and mental health diagnoses. It really seemed like I had to hit ‘rock bottom’ to recognize I am nothing without God. After many years of having an existential crisis, where life felt worthless, I gave my life to Christ.

Life is not necessarily easier but it is more meaningful and fulfilling. I have learned, from my own trauma, that I can welcome and embrace pain because this is what makes me human, and allows me to understand others’ pain. As mentioned before, God has put on my heart survivors and perpetrators of domestic violence, trauma, and sexual addictions/problems. He has led me through my own process of healing and revival where I want to be that inspiration for others and to be that support; it is me wanting to give to others what others and God have given to me. I thank God for all my experiences, and know the plans he has for me.
