I bring specialized training and experience in working with men , treating anxiety, trauma and PTSD, and working with relationship issues and family conflict.
Hi, my name is Matt Rojo. I am a licensed marriage and family therapist. I provide EMDR and Gottman informed therapy, and have over 12 years of experience helping individuals, couples, and families heal and grow. I know that it can be overwhelming to reach out for help, and that you're probably only doing this after you've tried everything else. I promise to provide treatment shown to be effective by clinical research, and to meet you with kindness, honesty, and acceptance.

I work with adults, teens, and couples struggling with depression, anxiety, and the inability to effectively communicate. With individuals, I help reframe challenges and liberate talents, especially in men alienated from the economy and meaningful purpose. I taught for years in a high school, and thus am comfortable working with adolescents. My orientation is eclectic, however I draw mostly from psychodynamic and relational theory, as well as CBT techniques. I find these approaches complementary, even necessary to establish a holistic treatment plan.

Greetings...I have been a licensed therapist since 1987 and specialize in working with men , women and couples. I have been facilitating men 's groups since the early 90's in my Redwood City office. My work is grounded in my deep understanding of the human experience and how we want to better understand ourselves and each other. Many of us lack some of the skills to accomplish this. I see myself as an experienced, wise and compassionate guide helping others navigate and master emotional challenges. Let me join you for a time on your life's journey.

Although most people are depressed or angry at times, they generally find a way to deal with the situation. There are times, however, when a person loses hope or is overwhelmed. They or others decide they might use some help. Sometimes a woman or a man decides that they would like to adjust their life style and emphasize their sense of self. If you work in Silicon Valley, I can use my experience in industry to help you unblock your potential and design effective strategies for greater satisfaction. If you seek spiritual depth, my years as a guide may help unfold meaning.

I work with all populations, especially men and young adults, using an integrative approach that emphasizes mindfulness and a holistic view of the self.
Choosing to start therapy is a sign of strength, not weakness. I believe all people have a natural inclination toward growth and wholeness and sometimes things get in the way. Exploring these obstacles with compassion and courage can help you cultivate the most important relationship of your life -- your relationship with yourself. Whether your challenge is depression, anxiety, grief and loss, relationships, addictions or career challenges, all you need to get started is the desire to change.

Are you sick and tired of feeling rejected, lonely, confused, anxious, depressed, or just plain stuck? If so, then I can show you how you can experience feeling connected, peaceful, empowered, energized, and feeling good. I'm not in the “symptom reduction” business – like most therapists. Whether you're a teen, adult, or couple, my focus is helping clients just like you experience MORE. Picture experiencing not just less of something but more...hope, love, self-control, happiness, fulfillment, freedom, confidence, affection, compassion, trust, acceptance, validation, and feeling understood. If you have PPO coverage, let me know.

Do you ever feel alone? Do you feel there's more to everything than this? Within every person exists enormous power. At some point in our lives we face a "void." The void is the symbolic space we create for whatever is missing in our lives; what we imagine will make us feel complete. We spend massive amounts of energy attempting to fill this void with negative relationships, substances, money, possessions, etc. Yet somehow we end up feeling empty.

I've had a special interest over many years in men ’s psychology.
Before moving into private practice, I provided counseling in diverse settings, such as Bay Area Community Services, to people facing highly adverse situations, and to people in crisis. As Lead Clinician at Fremont Hospital’s psychiatric unit, I worked with patients and their families to overcome the challenges of severe mental illness, and trauma, and was responsible for auditing the work of other clinicians. I held similar positions at Sutter Health, where I worked with patients and families facing a terminal illness and end-of-life.

Are you finding yourself caught in self defeating patterns? Are you anxious or depressed and don't know why? Maybe you are hard on yourself in ways you aren't to others. Or, do you find yourself overly critical of others? Do you wish you were happier, more at peace? We all try and want to live at our best, but many of us find ourselves pulled back into old patterns before we recognize our actions. We cope in many different ways or develop symptoms that are often self destructive. Why do we do this?

During this period of uncertainty, now may be the ideal time to address anxiety, depression, unwanted habits, repair relationships, or face situations that have caught up with you or your family members. If that sounds quite difficult, but you are open to facing your fears, then we may be a good fit. I work with adults, children, teens, and families, including many first responders. I use evidence based models, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) to address the uncertainties of life that can occur with, family, job, relationships or trauma.
