I have also have a special interest in women's issues , and trauma-related stress including abusive relationships, sexual assault, childhood abuse and emotional neglect, family discord and codependency.
If you are looking for a therapist, you may be feeling hurt, lost, or stuck and aren't quite sure what will help. When our most important connections are ruptured through stress, trauma, and broken relationships, life becomes overwhelming, unmanageable and isolated. Finding a therapist who will listen with intention and compassion can help you feel understood and more connected to yourself and your world. I use a relational-style focused on increasing your awareness and insight so that you feel empowered to move forward.

My clinical specialties include working with adults who are experiencing depression, anxiety, has difficulties managing work/life balance, suffering from grief and loss, as well as women's issues and phase of life problems.
Entering an intimate space with yourself is no easy task. But with the help of someone you trust, it makes the journey a bit easier to embrace. It is my belief that my job as a therapist is to help my clients connect the dots within their lives to enhance their mental health. This is done by unpacking, exploring and examining roadblocks from our past that are preventing us from being present in the present. This type of awareness helps to foster continual growth & grants access to understanding the story behind our behaviors.

Matthew Caston is an LCPC with several years of experience working with adolescents and adults with a wide variety of personal and clinical issues (mood, anxiety, behavioral, life transition, men's/ women's issues , relationships, trauma, etc.
Matthew sees great value with any person who is forthcoming about the issues that brings them to counseling. With such a large stigma surrounding seeking professional help to address mental health issues, he believes that it shows a great deal of character to admit when one needs outside help to manage present stressors, as it shows a level of vulnerability that he has grown to respect from past individuals he has previously worked with.

My specializations include: depression, anxiety, developmental delays, social skills, relationships, women's issues and parenting.
I have been a therapist for 30 years and view my role to be both a privilege and an honor: I am very sensitive to the courage it takes to share ones innermost feelings, thoughts and life journeys. I view therapy as a partnership in creating an 'action plan' to achieve the goals that are unique to each individual, couple and family. I utilize a practical and empowering approach that combines insight with cognitive-behavioral modalities to promote healthier solutions to life's challenges. Sessions are client centered and address issues on the continuum from everyday stress to mental health and behavioral challenges.

I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor and a Perinatal Mental Health trained provider, that specializes in anxiety, depression, women's issues , perinatal issues, and parenting support.
Have you decided to become a mom? It can be daunting. During this pregnancy are you asking yourself questions like “why am I not glowing and happy?” Have you just become a new mom and feel disconnected and that no one understands? Do you have young children and constantly ask yourself “am I a good mom, what’s wrong with me or my child?” You are not alone. I felt these very same thoughts and so have many others. Transitioning to parenthood the first, second or even third time can be overwhelming and at times traumatic and that is where therapy can be helpful.

Bringing home a new baby is usually associated with joy and happiness. However, you can also begin to experience extreme sadness or irritability, lacking interest in your new baby, increased issues and arguments with your partner, even struggling with returning to work or embracing your new role as a stay at home mom or dad. If you find that you are generally unhappy or you are experiencing more intense symptoms, it is important to know that you are not alone, this is treatable and there is help available for you.

You’re feeling overwhelmed, stressed out, and you don’t know how to manage everything. You feel like no one understands and it seems as though life keeps getting harder. It seems like you’ve tried everything and nothing is working. Do you often ask yourself what can I do to feel better or how can I help my child feel better? Do you find yourself wanting to connect with someone or wanting someone who can connect with your child but also keep you informed with how to help them? Reaching out to a therapist can be difficult because you want to be sure it’s the right for you or your child.
