Associate MFT



In a spirit of unconditional acceptance from me, you in turn would learn to provide that sense of acceptance to yourself and your experience.

This leads to finding within yourself your own answers and your own strength, and promotes a healthy way of relating to yourself and the world.

I apply theories such as psychodynamic, contemplative, integral, systems, The Enneagram, Byron Katie's The Work, Eckhardt Tolle, David Hawkins, MD, relational, and spirituality.

I work with couples and individuals who have a wide range of stress and stressors in life including PTSD and substance abuse.

I use tools such as Tong-len, empathic listening and a non-judgmental presence in our work.

Focused breathing, guided imagery, and sensation awareness are used to contact the wiser part of ourselves which helps the healing process unfold.

In couple's therapy, I provide a fair perspective that identifies the parts of the relationship dynamic that are not working. Recognizing when an individual's past may hinder the growth of the relationship is an important step to controlling harmful reactions.  We will explore and practice healthy interactions in therapy.

My educational background is in psychology and sociology which focused on family systems, multiculturalism, and the struggles minority groups face. I obtained my Master's in Counseling from John F. Kennedy University and focused on how the interplay of mind, body, and spirit affect our emotional and mental well-being. My training includes identifying trauma in the body, expressive arts, transpersonal psychotherapy, and EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing). My therapeutic experience includes depression, anxiety, drug/alcohol recovery, low self-esteem, shame, guilt, and grief. I welcome adults, children, and couples from various racial/ethnic backgrounds and from the LGBTQIA community.

Korë Rebecca Williams



I am most inspired in life by the capacity we all share to heal, grow, and reach for the joy and connection that is our birthright. I witness this capacity every day in my clients' courage to transform past hurts, memories, and present day obstacles into deepening relationships with themselves, and the freedom to make richer choices in their lives.

In the compassion and safety of deep acceptance and presence, I create the space for you to reach for this freedom and richness in your life. A space where you can learn to feel relaxed, empowered, and alive, and create the loving, trusting relationships with yourself and others that we all yearn for.

My work blends warmth and empathy, with somatic, relational, mindfulness, and cognitive techniques to build a strong, flexible sense of self, and guide clarity of insight into old, conflicting patterns. I offer a wide variety of modalities for my clients to choose from so that we can tailor a therapy experience that is the most effective and comfortable for you. I also approach the work we do together from a holistic perspective to support you in strengthening your individuality, wholeness, resiliency, and capacity to make choices in a very complex world.

I specialize in healing anxiety, depression, isolation, low self-esteem, and grief; physical, sexual, emotional and developmental/attachment trauma; addictions and eating disorders; and in learning to cope with chronic pain and illness.

My extensive training includes EMDR, Somatic Psychotherapy, Attachment Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy, EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques), Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction, Non-Violent Communication, yoga, qigong, and mindfulness meditation.

I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, have been practicing psychotherapy since 2002, and work primarily with individuals and families.

I offer a person-centered and integrative approach to therapy, drawing on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, family systems and feminist theory, as well as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy.  I teach strategies and tools to manage the symptoms that may be affecting your daily functioning, while engaging in a compassionate, honest, and nonjudgmental therapeutic relationship that can facilitate deep healing. To me, therapy is a holistic process of addressing biological, psychological, social, and spiritual aspects of individuals and their experiences.

I believe in creating and holding a safe, empathic space for people to be able to share their experiences, ask questions, and get validation for their feelings, as well as learning skills that can lead to a better quality of life. Creating a collaborative relationship with clients based on a client-centered perspective, along with a harm reduction view of therapy, and allowing a client’s experiences to unfold through a combination of Narrative Therapy, Feminist Therapy, and Cognitive Behavior Therapy to help them enrich their narratives is also important to me. I have a concentration in, but not limited to substance usage issues, LGBTQ issues, anxiety, and depression.

MFT Trainee


We come into this world to experience, grow and enjoy a good life. We all experience suffering and difficult times, which can lead us to distorted interpretations about self, others, and how to understand our experiences. Yet, we all have instincts, drives and the right to pursue our own happiness.


I started my search for truth with the physical world. I studied science and worked as a researcher in China, Canada and the US. I have MS and Ph.D degrees in computer science, and am a veteran of computer engineering.


I believe happiness comes from inside of ourselves. I believe psychological disorders come from distorted experiences and thoughts. Our biological conditions can impact our experiences; but I believe our psychological conditioning often determines how we behave and react. My approach is holistic and humanistic. As a therapist, I enjoy offering what I’ve learned from positive psychology, holistic and humanistic theory, cognitive, behavioral, and many other therapy methods to help us understand who we are and how to overcome our life difficulties.

I am available for sessions on Saturday.

Masami Ueki



My therapeutic approach is integrative and humanistic, which emphasizes clients’ self-development and takes into account clients’ capacity to achieve their best potential rather than focusing on their problems. I offer safe and deep acceptance, honesty, compassion, warmth, and empathy in my work. It is indispensable for me and my clients to be connected deeply so that we can work together to reach goals they wish to achieve. I believe that we are powerful beings to make our lives better in ways that we want life to be by utilizing what resources we have at our disposal. I will work with clients to explore what strengths they have in order to feel good about themselves.

I will teach tools and skills to manage and lessen the emotional afflictions of anxiety, depression, and relationship issues by utilizing integrative approaches including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). I also use T.E.A.M approach therapy, which is a new framework of psychotherapy includes CBT techniques.

MFT Trainee


I work to help others expand, understand and accept the whole experience of life. I bring curiosity, patience and, at times, a challenging presence to my interactions with clients. 

I help facilitate and witness the profound transformation that occurs when therapy allows a client to emerge with a deeper understanding of themselves.

I come to ECCC with over 25 years in a business environment that emphasized

creativity, personal expression and collaboration. I realized that by becoming a

psychotherapist I could focus on the client’s experience when facing existential and

experiential challenges. I work collaboratively with my clients through techniques

such as deep listening and relating, humor and somatic attunement. I source

inspiration from psychotherapeutic approaches such as Existential, Experiential, and

Transpersonal theories of psychology.

PCC Intern


Through empathic listening, validation and attunement, a helping relationship is birthed. I hold and facilitate a safe space for you to connect to your inner wisdom and strength while encouraging your resilience and desire to heal.


My education is in Transpersonal Psychology with a concentration in Nature-Based Therapy and Social Justice. When appropriate or upon request I offer interventions incorporating the natural world, both indoors and outdoors. Nature can serve as a powerful resource in connecting to the Self, others, and the many healing qualities of the Elements. I believe that in developing a relationship with the natural world, we can gain a deeper understanding of ourselves, our place on Earth and how we relate to other human beings.


I practice Person-centered Therapy and provide psychosocial support and culturally sensitive counseling. My practice draws from Social Justice Counseling and Client Advocacy and focuses on the socio-political context in relation to individual and community wellness and growth. I incorporate aspects of Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Family-Systems Therapy and I am trained in yoga and wilderness therapy. 


In therapy we will work collaboratively in discovering a path to your whole, well self. I welcome adults, children, couples and families and work especially with racial and cultural identity and LGBTQIA+.

You are special, there is only one you. 

In my therapy practice I believe in the power of unconditional positive regard and taking the time to get to know you, as each one of us has life experiences, backgrounds and beliefs that make us unique. 

There is deep power inherent within who you are and I am passionate about supporting you in unlocking, highlighting and empowering your inner strengths, values, goals and dreams in order to move forward in whatever challenge you may be currently facing.

My approach is strengths-based, culturally sensitive, and draws from my experience growing up as a first generation Filipina-American here in the beautifully diverse Bay Area. I have my Bachelor’s degree in Child and Adolescent Development and obtained my Master’s degree in Counseling Psychology from University of San Francisco in 2016. 


Before becoming a therapist, I provided specialized recreation and educational programming to children, teens, transition-aged-youth, adults, and seniors with various disabilities. I am very passionate about protecting and maintaining an individual’s right to dignity, self-sufficiency and freedom of voice and choice.

My experience as a therapist includes working with children and families in times of crisis and upheaval, adults involved with criminal justice system and individuals going through various times of transition and change, such as divorce, domestic violence, healing past trauma, career changes and the shift of becoming new parents.


I am looking forward to meeting with you.

Jennifer Torres

MFT Trainee

My therapeutic approach is built on empathetic listening and genuine care. I believe that the capacity for personal growth and healing can be obtained when you feel fully seen and understood. Using an existential and interpersonal model, mindfulness and meaning can be expanded. Through awareness, we can find our authentic selves creating deeper balance and peace in our lives.


More about me- Creating a healthy, safe relationship between therapist and client is the foundation for true change to occur. Exploring attachment patterns and working through negative core beliefs, suffering can be transformed. Cultivating self compassion and navigating emotions can be integrated to form deeper connections with ourselves and others. My goal is to offer you guidance and care through this process. I have a concentration in, but not limited to: Addiction and Recovery, Trauma (PTSD), Emotionally Focused Therapy, ADHD, LGBTQIA+, codependency, grief, anxiety, depression, anger management, blended families and single-parenting.


Together we can set sail on a journey to self-discovery, meaning, growth and positive change.
