Psychotherapy, Counseling Services & Astrology

San Francisco Bay Area  ~ California  & Beyond ~ All Sessions Are Remote

Matthew Engel, LCSW, CHt

You came to this world on a magical journey. As your story unfolds, it's normal to feel the heaviness of challenging relationships, cultural norms, demands from others, criticism, childhood wounds, traumatic events and relationships, feeling less than, self-destructive patterns, plans that don't work out as hoped, corporate politics, fears about money, daily stressors and needs that change through the cycles of life. Everyone has a deep yearning to live, relate, voice and express themselves in a way that honors the true brilliance of their heart and soul. My passion is to help you do that. I work from a place of depth. My approach is honest, interactive, direct, and compassionate - with a little humor sprinkled in. 

My Services: Most people work with me for on-going psychotherapy with an integration of the tools that resonate for them. However, I do maintain some availability for clients seeking time limited work via astrology, hypnotherapy and past life regression.

With 27 years of experience as a trained mental health professional and on-going commitment to my own growth, I offer solid clinical grounding as well as an openness to drawing from some additional modalities for those people who feel called to do so. Use of alternative modalities is not required in order to work with me through psychotherapy.

As of 2024, all sessions continue to be conducted remotely via video call.


"This is exactly what I've been needing, Matthew! I've been to 3-4 other therapists and none have them have given me the type of feedback and inquiry that you provide. I'm finding this really helpful." 

“Matthew’s wisdom and guidance are something I benefit from for my own life journey and also for referral to clients and friends who come to me for support. As a retired therapist, I consider Matthew’s many gifts a unique contribution to the transformation so needed by our weary world."

"Thank you, Matthew! I cannot express how much you have helped me."

"Dear Matthew, Thank you, for your wisdom, guidance and all that you do to help me through my daily battles. I now have tools to choose those that are worth fighting and those aren't. You're amazing!"
