Mychal Ostler

Marriage and Family Therapy Intern


We all struggle with issues and we all get stuck sometimes. 


During these times, we could all use a little help and someone to talk to. It can make all the difference in getting us to where we want to be. 


Many of our relationship problems come down to behavioral, communication and emotional processing patterns that just don’t work for us. In my view, many of the issues we struggle with individually have to do with the way we cope with the world around us. The good news is there is hope and we can live better than we ever did before, if we just put in the work to learn and master some new skills.


I specialize in working with couples, adolescents, and men. I like to think of myself as a consultant or coach, who you can work with as your partner in understanding yourself, your goals and getting you to where you want to be, on your terms. You have the power, and my passion is to help you access and master that power. It would be my pleasure to work with you!
