About Me

I am a licensed MFT (#112945) in the state of CA. MFTs are Marriage and Family Therapists, however, they are by no means limited to working with relational issues. MFTs are psychotherapists who have been trained to work with all matters pertaining to the suffering psyche. 

I see therapy as a collaborative process. In a sense, you are my guide—and I am yours. Together, we will explore your life—your wyrd—and seek for an embodied understanding of your path toward health, well-being and healing-transformation.


I encourage in all my clients the growth of self-awareness, creativity, intuition, self-love, acceptance, empowerment, compassion, imagination, meaning, and sense of purpose—the roots of a healthy life.


I am here to help you align with the natural healing power inherent within life, within you. I look forward to meeting you, learning from you and doing this important, revealing, healing and transformative work together.

Hi! My name is Matthew "Ash" McKernan.
