Meet Alexandra, AMFT
Educational and Professional Summary:
Alexandra Seastrunk, who goes by Alex, is a Registered Associate Marriage and Family Therapist (AMFT#103745) supervised by Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist Camille Johnson (LMFT#81572) in private practice in San Luis Obispo. She earned her Master’s Degree in Counseling Psychology with an emphasis in Depth Psychology from Pacifica Graduate Institute in Santa Barbara and her Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo.
She has worked in a variety of settings within the mental health field, including community mental health and substance abuse treatment, the non-profit sector, higher education, and private practice. She has experience providing individual therapy, couples therapy, group therapy, and grief counseling.
Alex currently offers individual therapy to adults and adolescents. She also provides couples therapy to adults who are experiencing relationship difficulties or looking to strengthen their bond with their partner.
Her priority is to create a safe and supportive therapeutic space, which will serve as the foundation of the work you do together. She will begin therapy wherever you are, and will encourage you to share whatever is on your mind, which may include thoughts, feelings, experiences, or dreams. Together you will also explore your past and the way in which it informs who you are today.
Her approach integrates a variety of techniques, but is grounded in depth psychology. Alex has found this approach to be especially meaningful in her own life and in her work with clients, as it looks beyond symptoms to get to the heart of the matter. Through getting to know ourselves deeply, we are able to grow and change. As your therapist, she will walk with you through this process of transformation.
Alex has lived on the Central Coast for over a decade and appreciates the relaxed atmosphere that SLO has to offer. She is an animal-lover and enjoys spending quality time with her two pups. In her spare time, she also likes to engage her creative side through reading books, writing, or getting into a good movie or television show. She loves a good conversation and values the time she gets to spend with her close friends and family.
