I find Kathleen easy to follow and keeps me engaged in what she is saying. The recommendations she offers feel very doable and non-intimidating. Using her approach to things have improved my relationships with all the people that mean the most to me. I adore and respect her tremendously!Apr 12, 2016
Kathleen and I connected as Chapman University alumni, and she was a great guest on my podcast/YouTube series, What the Flow! She's super friendly, knowledgeable in her field, and she knows how to communicate her experience with an audience. Working with Kathleen was not only a pleasure it was also inspirational.Apr 6, 2016
Kathleen Mates-Youngman presented to students and new professionals on the topic of Couples Therapy based on the book she authored on the topic. Kathleen's presentation style is very professional and also personable. She was able to relate to everyone in the room. She answered questions and comments in a very cordial manner. Working with Kathleen to set up the presentation was very easy and she was great to work with.Apr 6, 2016
Attending the workshop with Kathleen was such a breath of fresh air! She had a great energy and presentation style. She was warm and taught the material in a very accessible way. So often I am disappointed in the quality of presenters out there, but Kathleen's presentation left me feeling inspired and excited about what I learned. I especially found her presentation organized, engaging and very easy to follow which is not always the case with continuing ed presentations.Apr 5, 2016
Kathleen Mates-Youngman has been a pleasure to work with. Incredibly responsive, motivated and delightful, Kathleen delivers on her promises as an author and speaker. I wish all the authors I work with had her same positivity, work ethic and knowledge.Apr 5, 2016

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?My session fee for Therapy is generally $150, and I am open to sliding my fee if necessary. I am contracted with a couple of insurance company’s, and will do the client billing either way. I am also happy to offer a free 15 minute phone consultation for potential clients to share what is happening in their life currently and to get a feel for who I am and how I work! My speaking fee varies dependent upon time, location and topic.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?As a therapist, I meet with the individual or couple for a first session and gather information about what prompted them to make the call, what their goals are, and how their concerns have affected their life and relationship so far. I focus on developing rapport, creating a emotionally safe environment, and learning more about who they are and what their life experiences have been, in order to create a successful treatment plan. As a speaker, once I am given the overall topic, I learn more about the audience, and develop an outline to fit the goals. I do all that I can to present the topic in an engaging, interesting, and personable format. I enjoy interacting with the audience, am very open to input and questions, and will often include things such as role-play, personal anecdotes, creative writing, and art, to create an energetic, unique learning experience!
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have a Master's Degree in Psychology/Marriage and Family Therapy, have been seeing clients for 13 years, and a specialty in Couples Therapy. After spending 1000's of hours with couples in session, I wrote and had published an Amazon Best-Selling "Couples Therapy Workbook," which is very well respected in the field. I have had experience as a National Speaker, teaching my approach as a couples therapist to other clinicians and graduate students. I also speak to individuals, couples and artists about "Getting out of their own way and entertaining the possibilities in their lives and relationships," personal-growth, parenting, and numerous other motivational topics.
