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.

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 warmly welcome clients from all ethnic and racial backgrounds and sexual orientations, and have many years of training in anti-racism, and in issues concerning the queer community. I am happy to be able to offer my clients a sliding scale fee range based on income.

My therapeutic approach focuses on supporting others with exploring safe solutions and attaining mental health autonomy, peace, and resilience. My clinical styles are relational, existential, and Client-Centered.

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.

Amisha Mehtani, MA 

Associate MFT

#108527

My name is Amisha and I am a Registered Associate Marriage and Family Therapist.  I grew up in India and emigrated to California with my family at the age of 15. I am bilingual in English and Hindi and can understand some Punjabi. 

 

My approach is humanistic, which means I take a deeply accepting stance with all my clients. I believe we can all overcome the stressors in our lives with the right support and opportunity.  We begin to experience problems in our lives when we feel “stuck.”  Through attunement, reflective listening, validating, and building a strong alliance, we can work through this “stuck” place together and find solutions.  I have a particular passion for working with couples and families.  

 

In my work with couples, I use Sue Johnson’s Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) to de-escalate conflicts, create safety in the relationship and forge a new way of connecting.  In addition, I integrate TEAM-based Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) to help individual clients work through held beliefs that may be causing their suffering. Currently, I work at several sites seeing individual adults and couples.

 

In my spare time, I enjoy walks in nature, reading, cultural and musical events. I indulge in learning about various cultures, customs and trying ethnic cuisines.

Shang Heping

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.

I am here to support you through your process of learning how to navigate the waters of your life. I have a wealth of life experiences that have taught me the skill of learning how to turn life’s struggles into triumphs.

I want to be able to create a safe space for you to explore, heal, create, and improve. You are the hero/heroin of your own life and I want to be able to give you the tools, the ability, and the confidence to allow your best self to shine through.

Somewhere deep inside you there is a treasure chest of the things you have always wanted in your life, allow us to explore the landscape that hides these great gifts, learn how to face your biggest fears and learn how to rewrite your story so that you will be able to know on the deepest level who you are and what you are capable of.

My approach combines evidence-based practices such as CBT/DBT/MI (cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, and motivational interviewing) interventions with a foundation that is rooted in a humanistic, depth, and relational approach. I enjoy weaving together a variety of modalities to focus therapy towards clients’ meeting their goals and objectives.

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.

Reed Goertler

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.
