Shane Mehta

(LMHC, MA, EDM)

About Me

I am 31 years old. I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in New York State and received my Master’s degree in Psychological Counseling from Teachers College, Columbia University in 2011. I have experience with providing counseling for a wide range of concerns including stress, depression, anxiety, relationship issues and career challenges.

My counseling style is warm and engaging, and I have a gentle and non-judgmental style that creates a supportive environment for my clients. I use a client-centered approach with the belief that everyone has the capacity towards growth and healing. My role as a therapist is to create a safe space to build upon my clients’ existing strengths as well as to provide new tools and insight. I do not believe that there is a “one-size-fits-all” approach to therapy, therefore each session is tailored to each individual’s unique needs. I use a combination of strength-based, cognitive-behavioral, insight-oriented and motivational techniques in my counseling to help my clients problem solve and achieve their goals.

It takes courage to seek out a more fulfilling life and to take the first steps towards a change. I am here to support and empower you as you go through this challenging time. I look forward to helping you the best way I can!

She is just amazing!

Written by C.O. on Sep 24, 2017 after counseling with Shane for 2 weeks relationship, and self esteem

Shane is attentive in responding and honest with her thoughts. She has asked me questions that I’ve never thought of and has allowed me to have self realizations because of it. I truly enjoy talking to Shane and have already felt progress in myself.

Aside from being incredibly empathetic and knowledgeable, Shane cares about me. I genuinely feel that way -- that she wants me to get better, and she will do her best to get me there. The thought alone, that she is on the other side of the message board listening to my thoughts, guiding me and supporting me, calms me, and gives me great strengths to go forward. I couldn't have asked for a better counselor to treat my anxiety.

I think Shane really understands me. She listens to my problems and helps me dig deeper into different issues. I feel like I can start to see myself from a new perspective.

Shane has been wonderful. Encouraging, understanding and able to sum up my issues with a few words which makes me feel so understood.

I often look forward to what Shane has to comment, and she also asks pertinent questions about what is going on in my life. I find her to be empathetic and supportive, as well as insightful. I would like to keep working with her. I would like to add she is a patient person which I find very important. She's also sensitive to my thoughts.

Shane has been very helpful so far and although I need to be able to find more time to talk and check my messages... so far has been extremely positive and helpful!

I've had a great experience so far with Shane. I feel like she understands me and has helped me make progress towards accepting and overcoming the challenges I'm facing in such a short amount of time and I look forward to continuing to work with her.

I think Shane's comments are appropriate, compassionate, and encouraging. She really addresses my problems, and gives good advice. She lets you draw your own conclusions, and gives a lot of thought to how she responds. (with sensitivity) I would like to continue my subscription with her. Very helpful.

Shane is very easy to speak to. She is very reassuring and speaks the truth even if its not what you want to hear.

Shane is exactly what I've been looking for in a therapist. She is kind, warm, non-judgmental, analytical, and asks lots of really helpful questions to provoke new insights and perspectives. I have really benefited from working with her.
