About Me

Ed Segawa M.A.,LMFT Award Winning Counselor

During my first career as a Computer Engineer, there was a nagging question that I felt regularly in the pit of my stomach. I knew I had to address the question: Would I be happy to stay in my career for the rest of my life or would I regret it.

Without hesitation, I knew I would regret it. I felt really empty inside and I wanted something more out of life. I started researching career options and three came to mind: A law, MBA or psychology program. I realized that the law and MBA goals were more money driven than passion driven. So, I obviously chose the psychology path.

Finding My Passion

I care about the events and tragedies people must endure. I feel honored when people trust me enough to share their life's story with me. They add meaning to my life. I have seen the changes in my own life and in the life of my clients. To me, it is nothing short of amazing. I never even knew changes like this were even possible. My desire is to lead people to the same sense of joy and passion that I now have. Your path will inevitably look different than mine, but we can explore together ways to help you get the life you want!


I was never gifted as a computer engineer. I struggled to learn the new technologies, but as a therapist, I was pleasantly surprised at how easily I picked things up.

As an intern, I was able to surpass the results of my supervisor. I happened to get one of his old clients. That client told me that the results he experienced with me were better than my supervisor who had thirty years experience in the profession.
