Licensed Marriage And Family Therapist #115650 -
**In response to the COVID-19 crisis, all sessions are being conducted via easy-to-use video software. We can meet in the comfort and security of your home via video. Openings are available for Telehealth sessions for clients located anywhere in the state of California, and I am currently accepting new clients through Being Seen. A sliding scale is available during the crisis if needed. Please do not hesitate to inquire about this if your income has been affected. If you need help, it is easy to get started, just give me a call and we can talk about your situation to find a solution that works for you.**
Are you, your marriage. relationship, or family struggling? I can help you learn to recognize and modify the beliefs and behaviors holding you back. Experience has taught me the best thing you can do to help yourself is to take action–my job is to help you figure out what you really want to do. From there, I will help you identify and develop the tools, resources, and motivation to enable you to do it. The idea is that small changes really can and do lead to big results–I see this happen every day in my practice. Together we will develop strategies to help you cope and thrive.
You know you cannot keep doing what you are doing and expect things to just fix themselves. For things to change, you will have to change them. For things to be different, things have to actually BE different. This is why you are here, reading this right now–and by doing so, you are already doing something different, something good for you. Together, we can help you identify and develop the resources you need to cope with the problems that brought you here today.
My office is located on Duesenberg Drive in Westlake Village (Matthew McLean Family Therapy, Inc.). I am also a staff LMFT (Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist) at Change Within Reach, Inc., a group psychotherapy practice in Encino (Ventura Blvd at White Oak). Please note Change Within Reach, Inc. is not affiliated with Matthew McLean Therapy, Inc. in any way.
It is easy to get started. The first step is to give me call for a free 15-minute initial phone consultation, with no pressure. If it seems like we may be a good fit, we can take it from there. I am a vocal LGBTQ ally, and a firm believer in equality. Please note that UBH-Optum insurance is accepted at Change Within Reach, Inc. in Encino, where I am a staff LMFT, not at my practice in Westlake Village.
