Graduated from University of Phoenix in 2019 with Master's of Science in Counseling Marriage, Family and Child therapy


Kevin Valencia received his Master’s degree in Counseling, Marriage, Family, and Child Therapy from the University of Phoenix. He is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT) and practices independently. Much of his clinical experience is in the area treating individuals with severe and persistent mental illness such as schizophrenia, schizoaffective, and mood disorders. He has worked for county-contracted clinics for many years and has experience in start-up with non profit organizations. While working at county contracted agencies, Kevin supervised over thirty mental health workers and five clinicians. He has worked alongside Orange County mental health and other agencies within that county to relocate the homeless and link to services during the riverbed cleanup. Other agencies he has worked alongside include Illumination Foundation, Salvation Army, and JCRP (Jail to Community Release Program). Working alongside these agencies has gained him experience in navigating the mental healthcare system. While working at Be Well OC, he worked alongside police departments to start-up a crisis van program which is continuously growing. Although much experience with Orange County mental health and non-profit organizations, his true passion is to mentor people, watch them grow, and provide guidance when necessary.
