I WOULD LIKE TO HELP
Welcome, I’m Kecia Van Mechelen, a licensed therapist (LMFT #103071) with a private practice in Newport Beach, California. I provide psychotherapy and counseling services for people who are struggling with life changes, relationship difficulties, personal growth, adolescent challenges, transitioning into adulthood or who want to enhance and lead a more meaningful and fulfilling life.
EXPERIENCE AND EDUCATION
I hold a Masters of Arts in Clinical Psychology with an emphasis in Marriage and Family therapy from Pepperdine University. I’ve trained in community mental health clinics, the county criminal justice system, grammar schools and a private high school, as well as an in-patient psychiatric hospital. I’ve worked with people with substance abuse, victims of violent crimes, people experiencing anxiety and depression, teens challenged by society’s expectations. My vast experience and over twenty years in the mental health community have given me the ability to understand and relate to people on a deeper level.
