About Me

I am a licensed Marriage and Family Counselor (#112945) in the state of CA, as well as an ecotherapist, spiritual counselor/coach, and psyche-therapeutic reader of Tarot and Runes.

Therapy is 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,  and compassion—the roots of a meaningful and purposeful 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.
