About Me

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.

Education & Experience

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, trauma and people experiencing anxiety and depression. 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. Certification in EMDR allows me to treat trauma in a highly effective way.
