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.

Trinh Reyes, LCSW

Virtual Outpatient Clinician

Like a lotus flower, sometimes it can feel as though we come from the murkiest water, but, we can grow into our best selves. Growth is possible. My strength as a therapist is empowering individuals, helping them draw on their strengths and heal holistically.  With over a decade of experience, I am confident I can support you in achieving your goals.

Tristan Cook, LPCC

 Outpatient Clinician

In life we often encounter painful, overwhelming, or negative experiences that we didn’t want nor ask for. Whether it is a medical or mental health diagnosis, or trauma that we feel has marked our lives, I seek to help guide others along this path on their own terms. Despite the often frustrating nature of human life, there is always room for thriving. 

Sarah Ou, LCSW

Virtual Outpatient Clinician

I’ve been a clinician since 2015 providing therapy to clients across the lifespan in various settings (in crisis, in jail, in home, etc.). As a daughter to Taiwanese immigrants, I am especially equipped to work with women and clients of Asian descent, but I am also a lifelong learner who enjoys working with folks from diverse backgrounds.

Morgan Hong, AMFT

Clinical Operations Manager

It’s difficult to live with thoughts, feelings, and beliefs that aren’t welcoming, hopeful or kind, isn’t it? When that inner stream is clouded with shame, negativity, or apathy, therapy can be a filter to clear out the toxins and make way for the new. A braver, steadier, and more integrated YOU.  

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. That’s why I started working with families with young children, the place where the mind is born and shaped. 

Sam Himelstein, PhD

CEO + Cofounder

I’m passionate about helping people. My own personal hardships as a teen with drugs and trauma lead to a significant amount of trouble (i.e., juvenile hall, group homes, etc.). I was on a dark path. I turned my life around through a lot of inner work and help, became a licensed psychologist…
