Hello. I am Matthew Paez, ASW. I believe in providing evidenced based psychological treatments from a holistic and person-centered approach. After retiring from the Marine Corps, I graduated from USC and trained at the Naval Hospital Camp Pendleton. I like helping clients conquer difficulties with proven treatments that allow you to engage life with a peaceful mind, a healthy outlook, and joy. We'll learn how to stop white knuckling life's problems and proudly use new and effective techniques to engage our family, friends, and co-workers with. Call me for a free consult or I can help match you with one of our therapists.
I specialize in trauma/PTSD, substance use, military, LEOs, self-defeating behaviors, anger mastery, family of origin issues, marriage/couples counseling, emotional stability, family counseling, parenting, rebuilding healthy relationships and behaviors. I am trained in trauma therapies highly recommended for treating PTSD, including CPT, PE, WET, etc.
Whether you are looking for intensive treatment or personal growth, most clients discover their ability to reach far beyond the basic skills necessary to achieve their initial goals. There can be a lot of joy in understanding ourselves and growing into the person that we can be proud of. The journey is judgement free and at any pace that we need to take it.
