About Ethel

Image Coming SoonMy name is Ethel Mostrel. I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and a member of The California Association for Marriage and Family Therapists (CAMFT), with over 20 years of experience in the field of Clinical Psychology and Couples Counseling. I call myself the Relationship Expert.

For over 20 years I have been helping individuals, couples and families solve challenging life problems and relationship conflicts that, if ignored or mishandled can generate anxious or depressed moods, contribute to substance use, impede personal and professional growth and diminish relationship satisfaction and the ultimate goal of well-being.

My mission is to help you find your pathway to discovery and empower relationships. I have devoted my private practice to helping people find, maintain work and succeed at love.
