Professional statement

Kevin Cornelius is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in Mountain View, California. He works with individuals and couples, ages 14 and older. Many of Kevin’s clients come in to address anxiety, depression, and relationship problems. Kevin is particularly passionate about serving members of the LGBTQ+ community, high school and college students, and recent graduates. He also has advanced training in helping people improve relationships, and in the high-speed treatment of anxiety disorders.

Kevin is trained in TEAM-CBT, in which you change the way you feel by changing the way you think. In session, Kevin focuses on teaching you the skills you need to become your own therapist and help yourself when negative feelings return. This approach supports clients to learn how to help themselves when they feel overwhelmed with anxiety or depression.

Kevin's style is supportive, empowering, and goal-oriented. When clients first start therapy, he will focus on learning what the client has been struggling with and providing empathy, understanding and support before inviting the client to work on changing the way they feel.

Kevin received his MA in Marriage and Family Therapy from Phillips Graduate Institute in Encino, CA. He has worked at Process Therapy Institute, where he completed the Advanced Process Therapist Certification program. Outside of private practice, he enjoys travel and spends most of his time parenting three young children.


Message to clients

It can be challenging to find a therapist who you feel comfortable talking to about your most important problems who also has tools to help you change. Every day, I see the clients I work with find hope and make dramatic change. I use a collaborative, goal-oriented approach to help clients find relief from specific problems and find joy in life. I’ll provide warmth, empathy and support while helping you choose a specific problem and giving you powerful, evidence-based tools you can use to find relief. I enjoy working with people from all backgrounds, cultures and life experiences. I have expertise in working with problems unique to the LGBTQ+ Community, and I’m very dedicated to providing effective therapy to people of all gender identities in a partnership that is respectful and curious. I want to know what’s unique about you and help you find self-acceptance and joy. When therapy with me is complete, you can expect to have learned how to use powerful methods to eliminate your symptoms of Depression and Anxiety, build close and satisfying relationships and become your own therapist, with a way of helping yourself that you will be able to use for the rest of your life.

I offer a free, 15-minute online video consultation, so I can learn about you and what you are looking for in therapy, and we can determine if I am a good fit for your therapy goals.
