Lance Ahl, MDiv, MSMFT

Registered MFT

Insurance:  No, but will provide a super-bill you can submit to your insurance company
Sliding Scale: Yes, upon review

Areas of Specialty: Couples, issues unique to those in the military, trauma, grief and identity formation for young adults and professionals.

As an ordained pastor, I bridge the areas of theology and psychology to help people discover and live a life of healing, wholeness, meaning and purpose.  In the therapy room, my approach is interactive and engaging as I seek to connect with my clients and help them to understand their interpersonal cycles that keep them stuck and discover ways to break through and move forward.  I help clients feel understood, equipping them with practical tools, and filled with hope for a better tomorrow.  Working together, I believe in finding restoration from the wounds of the past and helping clients find a healthy purpose-filled way of living.   My wife, Jennifer (an ordained pastor on staff at North Coast Calvary Chapel), and I enjoy living in Carlsbad, California.

The Hideaway

Sometimes we find ourselves in a place where we feel like the world is overwhelming us. We find ourselves caught up in the bustle of work, school, appointments, chores, and all of our other daily tasks and responsibilities. Before we know it, we’ve let something precious slip right through our fingers. We wonder if there is any hope of getting our marriage back.

There is hope.

The Hideaway is a beautiful sanctuary hidden away from the bustle of day-to-day life. It is a place where anxiety turns to tranquility and time stands still. It is a place of adventure and encounter, a place of restoration and transformation.

It is the place to discover the marriage you were always meant to have.

Celebrate Recovery

Celebrate Recovery is a biblical and balanced program that helps us overcome our hurts, hang-ups, and habits.  It is based on the actual words of Jesus rather than psychological theory.  26 years ago, Saddleback Church launched Celebrate Recovery with 43 people. It was designed as a program to help those struggling with hurts, habits and hang-ups by showing them the loving power of Jesus Christ through a recovery process. Celebrate Recovery has helped more than 21,000 people, attracting over 70% of its members from outside the church. Eighty-five percent of the people who go through the program stay with the church and nearly half serve as church volunteers.
