Welcome to Metaphor Therapy. My name is MacKenzie Stuart and I provide psychotherapy to adults and partners from Alameda, California with my associates. I offer both in-person and telehealth services, and am licensed to practice in both California and New Jersey.

I hope this space can help you begin to answer whether we might work well together.

Being warm, caring, empathetic, and helpful is a core part of being a therapist, so I won't emphasize those qualities here. Here are some of what I consider to be my more unique clinical facets:

  • Nonjudgmental even when not neutral

  • High energy, whimsical, and mirthful

  • Skilled at verbally describing internal decision-making and emotional processes, often with terrible yet effective metaphors

  • Excellent pattern recognition and analytical skills
