Mary Ann Rege, LMFT

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

My driving passion as a therapist is to help others live with inner peace, ease, and balance despite challenging circumstances. I tailor my approach to the unique needs of the individual or couple and teach practical ways to problem solve and develop skills which decrease stress and increase joy.

As a Trained Mindfulness Facilitator from UCLA’s Mindful Awareness Research Center, coupled with additional mindfulness training from UCSD, I passionately teach others how to reduce anxiety, improve mood, step out of habituated behavior, and make skillful, healthy choices. I blend classical teachings drawn from my training in Kyoto, Japan with secular mindfulness, compassion practices, and cognitive behavioral therapy. My compassionate approach with those battling addiction, combined with years of experience in substance use disorder treatment, helps to turn debilitating shame into positive, rewarding recovery. I truly consider people as experts of their own lives and desire to partner together to achieve clarity and define goals that are in line with personal values, ethics, hopes, and dreams.

I treat all gender identities and sexual orientations. In my work with the LGBTQIA+ community, I utilize Affirmative Psychotherapy which prizes and honors the beautiful spirit of this population and is effective in learning to truly love oneself and live a vibrant, authentic life. For couples with relationship challenges, I begin with the basics of effective communication using Imago Therapy techniques and a combination of process work. I typically bring mindfulness into the work I do and aspire to help others live more present focused versus living too much in the past which can create low mood or being too future focused which fuels anxiety.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT): A form of talk therapy that trains clients to recognize
patterns of unproductive thinking and learn healthier responses to challenging situations.

Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR): a meditation-based therapeutic program
designed to treat anxiety, depression, stress and pain by training one’s mind to build awareness of one’s body, thoughts, behaviors by focusing intensely on the present.

Solution-Focused Brief Therapy: is a therapeutic approach that emphasizes a client’s vision and solution instead of a source of their problems. Clinicians practicing SFBT guide clients towards engaging solutions and plans for actualizing them.


LGBTQ+ Affirmative Psychotherapy: is a form of psychotherapy for non-heterosexuals,
specifically gay and lesbian clients, which focuses on client comfort in working towards
authenticity and self-acceptance regarding sexual orientation.
