About My Clients

Especially in these times, we are face to face with our vulnerability. We may find ourselves feeling unusually scared, angry, unable to settle, confused, overwhelmed, lost, or isolated. The healing is taking this opportunity to give ourselves presence, to really listen internally. It can be supportive to feel held by another presence as we feel and be with ourselves.

My Background and Approach

Ruchika Mehta is a licensed psychotherapist with over a decade of experience. She came into this field after having a successful career as a software engineer to do work that is closer to her heart. For many years, Ruchika worked with children and adults with tremendously challenging lives and circumstances. What she discovered was that resilience in people was inherent within them, often covered up under layers of what their environments reflected back to them. Ruchika saw the work as tapping into the resilience, into the inherent beauty and flowering of each person she worked with. Ruchika obtained her Masters in Integral Counseling Psychology from California Institute of Integral Studies in 2007. She has been a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist since 2012. Outside of providing therapy, Ruchika supervises other therapists, enjoys writing, regular yoga and meditation practices, her community and being playful.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Therapy can be a space where you can be met just where you are. Those whom I work with know from experience or intuition that what you need from therapy is not to be boxed in, but to connect with and follow your inner wisdom. You want to connect with the openness and possibility of your wise, kind, self generous and loving self. And that you want to live connected to your joy, to your aliveness, and to the feeling of play, whether that means changing your life circumstances or coming to a place internally where no matter what's going on for you right now, nothing can keep you from the goodness of you.
