About

Sometimes we just need a band-aid to get us through a rough patch, and other times a deeper dive into long-standing patterns and struggles is the right focus - both are valid approaches! Choosing the right therapist is an important step, so let's chat about questions you might have and make sure you get the right fit. I work with individuals, couples, and children, and from time to time I also offer group workshops. I have specialized training in EMDR, Play Therapy, and have over a decade of clinical experience. I am currently an LPC Board-approved clinical supervisor as well as an adjunct professor in Loyola's Counseling program.
I am also a research Neuroscientist at Tulane University studying stress and trauma. I successfully use EMDR Therapy with clients struggling with anxiety, depression, self-worth issues, performance troubles, PTSD, and other types of trauma. Even something your friends and family think is a minor event, can be a traumatic moment for you.
We are adaptive beings, but sometimes the ways we adapt to experiences in our lives prove unhelpful and limiting in the long run - We do the best we can with what we have! Telling ourselves to "act" or "feel" different isn't enough and usually sets us up for failure. If this sounds familiar, reach out and let's work together to create some real change.

Matthew T. Watson's Groups

Introductory Child-Parent Relationship Workshop

A 3-hour introductory Child-Parent Relationship Training (CPRT) workshop for parents of children from 3 years old to 8 years old. The workshop is attended by parents only, and helps to strengthen the relationship between a parent and child using therapeutic play sessions. Parents learn how to: Respond empathically, Build self-esteem, Help develop self-control, & Set therapeutic limits. Play is important to children because it is the natural way they communicate: toys are like words, and play is their language. By changing how children feel about themselves, parents see a significant difference in the child’s behavior.
