Kevin O’Bryan Psychotherapy
I cannot help but dream about a criticism that would try not to judge but to bring an oeuvre, a book, a sentence, an idea to life…It would multiply not judgments but signs of life.
– Michel Foucault, “The Masked Philosopher”
Kevin O’Bryan, LMFT (#119828)
I consider myself a bit of a vagabond. Growing up, my family moved many times, so I saw and lived in many parts of the country — urban and rural; Midwest, South, and West. From these diverse childhood experiences, I met people from all walks of life and developed a genuine curiosity for hearing people’s stories. I discovered that I had a natural knack for making others feel comfortable sharing their experiences, particularly their struggles and fears. This led me to pursue a career as a therapist, and I completed my degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from USC. My training focused on working with those with trauma, somatic difficulties, and sexual identity and intimacy struggles.
In my spare time, I love to surf, cook for my family, listen to live music, and travel the globe.
I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT 119828) in Los Angeles. Thanks for taking the time to learn more about the way I work. I look forward to learning whether we may be a good fit for working together.
Working with Me
At the Southern California Counseling Center (SCCC), I received training in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) for working with trauma and am currently working on certification in that modality. As adjunct to that I have experience working with other somatic modalities.
I also have experience in working with sexual issues and am completing training in Out-of-Control Sexual Behavior model. I am well versed at having sexual health conversations.

I do not accept insurance currently. For regular sessions, I will consider sliding my scale based on the availability of space for reduced rate in my schedule. However, if our cadence shifts to less frequent sessions, my rate would return to full.
A note about my rates:
My fees reflect the costs I have incurred and continue to incur to provide and expand mental health care to a wide range of persons. These costs include initial and continuing education, professional licensing, and professional development. I am committed to making mental health care more affordable and accessible to all who are in need of it. I have set my rates in order to support those efforts.
If my full rate is outside your means, I will:
- Slide if I have any space on my reduced fee schedule.
- Collaborate with you to connect you with lower rate services available in my professional network.
