About me

Wow you’re actually here, my name is Amrita Kataria and it is so nice to meet you. I am a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor, Licensed Mental Health Counselor and an Empowerment Coach. I am currently licensed in California, Florida and am providing tele-health services in both states. For my coaching you can reside in any state to receive services.

I am a British born and raised South Asian woman, who moved to Florida in her teen years and somehow ended up in California. Talk about being multicultural and let’s not forget all the different faith-based school experiences! All jokes apart, I truly feel blessed to have spent my time growing up in different places and adapting to various cultures but still embracing my South Asian culture and traditions. My hope is to help you to achieve a healthy balance in your bicultural & multicultural experiences, maintain healthy relationships (especially with family), and acceptance towards yourself.

In my therapy practice I specialize in working with Individuals, and Couples that struggle with Anxiety, Depression, Low Self-Esteem, Career transitions, Major Life Transitions, Relationship Conflict (marital and pre-marital counseling), and Self-Identity.

My approach is deeply rooted in utilizing Cognitive Behavioral Therapy making you the expert on your own life. CBT focuses on cognitive restructuring, reframing, learning coping skills, and guided discovery. Strength, power, and the will to change always comes from within, given the right guidance I can help you achieve your best, authentic self and help promote personal growth. I also practice relaxation techniques, grounding techniques, use guided meditation and take a mindful, holistic approach enhance the healing experience from within.

I am currently licensed in California, and Florida and am open state-wide to seeing clients as I am providing telehealth services only at this time. Sessions can be conducted from the comfort of your own home, office or any other safe space.

Please have a look at my website for any further information www.healinghearts-ca.com and feel free to send me an inquiry or schedule your free 15 minute consultation. I am not currently accepting insurance but will be happy to provide you with a superbill.

My Coaching Practice

Have you ever asked yourself  if you’re struggling with your self-identity? Does it feel like you’re always dealing with some inner conflict? Is it difficult for you to identify your own personal values outside of cultural ones? Do you feel guilty for paving your own path and feeling like you’re betraying your culture?

Do you feel like you can’t choose the career you want to have ? Do you feeling guilty for saying “no” to your parents? Do you feel under pressure to find marry someone within your own culture or caste? Do you feel stressed thinking about getting married by a certain age or settling down? Are you staying awake at night thinking about how you can move forward from the cultural expectations and conditioning. Do you ever wonder if you’’ll be able to cultivate the kind of life that you want?

Are you able to effectively set boundaries that work for you? Do you feel comfortable and confident in your OWN skin?

If the answers to these questions are “NO” then you’ve definitely come to the right profile. I can help you to break-free from cultural-conditioning and help you to OWN your self-identity through my coaching program and guidance.

In my coaching practice I help young professional Asian/South Asian women move forward from cultural conditioning, societal and familial expectations so that they can OWN their self-identity and live life on their own terms. I help women work through guilt, heal their inner child, resentment, letting go, and help build their confidence. Don’t hesitate to reach out for a free connection call, and I would love to be a part of your journey.

My approach focuses on embracing parts of the culture that align with the values that serve you and the ones that your honor.
