About Me

Hello, and thanks for considering me to assist in your life journey. I am a marriage and family therapist licensed in California with over 30 years of experience working the continuum of behavioral health. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, goal setting, and career challenges.. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse.

My counseling style is to work collaboratively with you to jointly determine your specific needs and to develop goals and an action plan. My goal is to help you be successful in your journey. I believe that you are the expert on you, and inherently know what needs to be done. It takes courage to strive for a more fulfilling and happier life. The first step in that process is often the most difficult as most of us tend to avoid change. The rewards, however, are great. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and partner with you.

I look forward to working with you!

Eric has been the best therapist I’ve ever had and the only one that I’ve ever really seen progress within myself from. He really helped me see the bigger picture of things, act on rational thinking rather than emotions, learn to work on mindfulness and other helpful tools to manage my anxiety and depression. Eric is so extremely knowledgeable and very interesting. I love hearing what he has to say as I’m always learning something new that will help me grow as a person. I’ll forever be thankful for Eric’s help and expertise. Thank you Eric!!!

Eric has been the best first time counselor experience I’ve ever had! He’s very attentive and accommodating to my needs and issues. He’s also very direct and patient when it comes to making sure that we personally do our own work in order to make progress, which is definitely an amazing experience! I don’t think I’ve ever felt better and more alive ever since I’ve had my sessions with Eric! He’s the best!

I highly recommend Eric! I had sessions with him for the last 9 months and he gave me many techniques for dealing with anxiety. My anxiety reduced significantly because of that. He was very supportive in the challenging times and always available when I needed his input the most. He helped me make necessary changes in my life in order to achieve happiness and I’m very grateful for that :)

Dr. Kammersgard helps me navigate tough issues in a non-abrasive yet objective way. Without giving advice, he allows me to come to healthy conclusions on my own with his guidance. He helps me see my situation in a way that makes sense and fits reality and not the way I exaggerate it in my head.

Eric has been incredibly thorough and flexible with me. He gave me a list of tools and things I could work on on my own. He was patient and understanding the whole time. Although I was a little nervous at first he was very accepting and it turns out I didn't need to be worried at all. I've improved a lot since I started counseling with him and I would highly recommend him.
