Michael McClary, MA, LMFT - MFC16463
I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with more that 30 years experience. I received my Masters degree from Azusa Pacific University and am presently a member of the California Association of Marriage and Family Therapists. Along with Deborah Bowser, I formed Bonita Counseling Center in 1983. I specializes in couples work and recovery from marital affairs, as well as anxiety, depression and grief and loss issues.
Therapy provides you with a chance to heal the pain in your life and the pain in your relationships. Even if the pain seems insurmountable, like from an affair, there still remains a real chance of making things better. We can't be sure of the length of that journey but it is a trip we will take one step at a time. I try to make this a safe place for accomplishing the healing process and it is a process we will accomplish together.

Finding the right therapist can be an intimidating task. Sometimes the first therapist you pick isn’t a good fit and you might have to see more than one before you find one with whom your comfortable.
It's important to remember that therapy is a much, much richer experience than just problem-solving. The foundation of good therapy is the relationship you and the therapist build together. Because this relationship is going to be so crucial to the effectiveness of your therapy, it is essential you find someone with whom you feel a comfortable connection; someone who makes you feel understood and accepted; a therapist who creates and maintains an environment within which you can feel safe to explore even the most deeply felt sources of pain or conflict. Choose a therapist with whom you feel you can establish such a life-changing and life-enhancing relationship. You deserve the best possible therapy experience.
