McCall Stephens.jpg

McCall Stephens, LMFT

Therapist

McCall grew up in Bountiful, Utah and after the last 10 years in California, decided that a change of pace was needed and he decided that Cache Valley was the perfect place to slow down. He is a husband and a dad who loves the outdoors. He loves backpacking, rock climbing, and camping. Most recently he has taken an interest in golf as well. McCall loves going on dates and adventures with his beautiful wife and playing along with the crazy ideas that his two daughters come up with for fun. 


Life can be challenging and because of this we are not meant to go through it alone. You might be working through a lifetime of depression and anxiety, recovering from past trauma, learning to create healthy boundaries, or healing from infidelity. These topics can be heavy to process and sometimes we need somebody to walk through the darkness with us. If you can relate to this, then you are in the right place. 


There is hope and light ahead. McCall will work with you from a non judgmental place to help you better understand your trials and move toward a better, more fulfilling life. He will guide you on a path to becoming a stronger, more resilient person and help you get yourself out of the position you currently find yourself in. Most importantly, he will give you the skills you need to build the life and relationships you are hoping for.


McCall has been working with individuals and couples for 10 years and has worked from both an emotional and logical framework to help clients heal from past and present wounds. He has witnessed many amazing transformations in past clients and is excited to begin this journey with you!


Please feel free to contact the front desk for an initial 15 minute phone consultation with McCall, free of charge, and start your healing today.
