SHALINI MONGIA, M.S., LMFT
Alamo Counseling is a group private practice comprised of highly skilled, warm, engaging therapists and educators. We implement evidence-based treatment with interventions from humanistic, cognitive-behavioral, and systemic therapies. Our clinical trainings and workshops are designed to build professional connection with interactive and experiential learning. I am passionate about helping clients, associates, and colleagues learn-then-live their unique potential.
As the owner of this practice, I'm thankful every day for the expertise, work ethic, humor, and strategic thinking of this amazing team and the range of services we're able to offer our community. In a confidential and empathic space our clients discover new insights, build resilience, and feel more empowered. The past 16 years of providing mental health services have been deeply rewarding. It's a privilege to be entrusted with meaningful life stories and vulnerabilities while helping create lasting change. I work with clients as a collaborative process where we explore the habits, patterns, stressors, traits, and experiences that may be impacting health and wellness. The moments of awareness and transformation that occur in this journey are truly an honor to witness.
My background includes teaching at CSU East Bay in the EPSY graduate program, and as Clinical Director of the intern, grief counseling, and 211 programs at Contra Costa Crisis Center. At John Muir Behavioral Health, I worked in the adult and adolescent units of the Partial Hospitalization and Intensive Outpatient programs, and prior to that was counseling survivors of abuse and trafficking. I am licensed in California and Utah, with certifications in EMDR, Imago (IRT), and Clinical Supervision.
