Arthur Ellis Holden Jr. PhD, PSY # 9379

As a Registered Associate Marriage and Family Therapist, I strive to help you or your teen realize growth by working together to inspire positive mental health, achievable goals, and healthy relationships.


I graduated with honors from the University of Illinois at Chicago. During my subsequent career in California, I saw how the failure to address mental health concerns created greater adversities for individuals and families.


I chose to follow my passion of helping others by attending a graduate program in Clinical Psychology. I received my Master of Science in Psychology at California State University Fullerton (CSUF). My training also included a practicum at S.T. Counseling of Orange County. In private practice, I have continued that education with a focus on anxiety, teens, adult autism, and emotional distress.

On a personal level, I am a neurodivergent therapist with a great appreciation for geek culture, virtual reality gaming, science fiction, and superhero movies. I also encourage you to explore your focused interests and share them with me as much as you desire. Unmask and be your authentic self!


I believe that together we can create a new way to live that honors your authentic self by being both mindful of the present and hopeful for the future. I welcome you to contact me when you are ready to start that journey.
