Mateus Porter


About Me

Hello, my name is Mateus Porter, MA, LMFT. I’m a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and a certified PREPARE-ENRICH marriage counselor in California. I work in a non-profit setting as well as enjoying my private practice where I see a variety of clients ranging in age and struggling with depression, anxiety, school/work stress, life transitions, relationship issues, and parenting concerns. The couples I see usually struggle with communication, intimacy issues, finances, questions about their future together, or concerns about their children.

Therapy can vary depending on the individual therapist that you work with. My style is a strength-based eclectic approach that combines elements of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution-Focused, Mindfulness, and Internal Family Systems. I love being able to meet my clients where they’re at and go at their pace while applying the therapeutic approach that best fits their specific needs. I’ll usually use the PREPARE-ENRICH assessment in order to find out the couple’s strengths and areas of growth.

Life can be hard and it takes courage to reach out for help. You’re taking the first step right now which is amazing! It would be an honor to assist you with the challenges you and your partner are facing. Let’s make life a little better together.

Mateus is very intuitive and an awesome therapist, easy going and able to navigate through the problems and isolate factors to pinpoint the needs of my partner and I. Highly recommend.
