Surbhee Mehta, LMFT

Virtual Outpatient Clinician

It was through my own personal experience of crisis at a young age that led me to therapy, and in turn, to become a therapist. I know what it’s like to be on the other side, and I know how to reach kids. Always with a compassionate approach, I see their uniqueness and strengths and work collaboratively with them and you to find what works best.

Raina Lawler, LMFT

Outpatient Clinician

I have worked in a variety of therapeutic settings including high schools and junior highs, family homes, and at nature camp in the Bay Area regional parks. My past clients include teen girls with anxiety, LGBTQI youth, and youth on the Autism Spectrum. This experience has given me a variety of skills that I use when seeing kids at Family Spring.

Jon Stenson, PhD

Outpatient Clinician

My inspiration for becoming a therapist stems from my own struggles as a child and adolescent. I experienced a great deal of confusion and emotional pain and began to gain an understanding of the untreated mental illness that existed in my community largely due to the traumatic events that myself, family, and friends were exposed to.

In life we often encounter painful, overwhelming, or negative experiences that we didn’t want nor ask for.

Regardless of our circumstances, we are all capable of healing. I know this because I have experienced it myself, and because I have witnessed and accompanied people in untenable conditions to deepen awareness about their patterns and access the agency and choice necessary to change.

Mica Gonzalez, PhD

COO / Clinical Director + Cofounder

Early on in my therapy training I realized that to help people, I had to understand where they came from.
