SHALINI MONGIA, M.S., LMFT
I am the owner of Alamo Counseling, a private practice comprised of highly skilled, warm, and engaging therapists and educators. We implement evidence-based treatment with interventions from humanistic, cognitive-behavioral, and systemic therapies.
The past 16 years of providing mental health services have been deeply rewarding and it is a privilege to be entrusted with the meaningful life stories and vulnerabilities of my clients. The moments of awareness and transformation that occur in this journey are truly an honor to witness.
My background includes having served as an adjunct professor at CSU East Bay in the EPSY graduate program, and as Clinical Director of the Contra Costa Crisis Center managing the grief programs, clinical internships, and 211 call center. At John Muir Behavioral Health, I was on the adult and adolescent units of the Partial Hospitalization and Intensive Outpatient programs, and prior to that worked with survivors of abuse and trafficking at Ruby's Place. I am licensed in California and Utah, with certifications in EMDR, Clinical Supervision, and Family Mediation.
I work with clients as a collaborative process where concerns are addressed together by exploring habits, patterns, stressors, traits, and experiences that are impacting health and wellness. In a confidential and empathic space clients can discover new insights, build resilience, and feel more empowered. I am passionate about helping people learn-and-live their unique potential.
