About Me




My name is Mona Eshaiker (she, her). I am a proud queer Iranian-Iraqi American woman and licensed Marriage and Family Therapist.

I received my undergraduate degree in Gender Studies from the University of California, Santa Cruz in 2008 and my Master's in Science in Clinical Psychology from San Francisco State University in 2013.

My desire to enter the helping field is rooted in social justice blossomed by my experience working with women impacted by the criminal justice system.

My passion for education and mentorship led me to supervise new therapists at local organizations such as the Long Beach LGBTQ Center and Starview Community Services.

In addition to my clinical and consulting practice, I am also the Senior Advisor of Wellness & Inclusion at the Rise Journey where I provide HR education and strategy.
