***Now Accepting New Clients***I believe we are all born to create legacies. The world needs a perspective, idea, insight, talent, and gift that only you can give or bring. Different adversities attempt to diminish our belief that this is true. I am a therapist whose focus centers on client self-empowerment and determination. My passion is working with individuals and groups to help them ritualize peace by creating coping mechanisms to face challenges and achieve goals. My practice aims to promote healing by facilitating the creation of new road maps to personal wellness.

Hello and thank you for stopping by. Counseling is a very personal journey and it is important to find a counselor you can trust and feel comfortable with. I always encourage potential clients to research, compare, and even email or call prior to the first session so any initial questions or concerns can be answered and addressed. Over the past 20 years both my training and experience in mental health have been in working with people with history of trauma, mood and anxiety type disorders, relationship difficulties, behavioral struggles, parenting issues, and life transitions.

I specialize in working with clients who are trying to get in touch with their authentic self. Oftentimes anxiety/ panic, depression, trauma and growing up in environments that did not support or see us for our true selves makes this difficult. Clients I work with are often trying to process these experiences to find healing, to get to know themselves, and develop the life that they truly want to lead. People often report feeling seen and heard during our sessions and leave each session with ideas of how they might navigate a particular challenge they are currently facing.

As you grew up and made your way through the world, you may have found yourself disconnected. You may have been told that who you are wasn't okay and needed to be changed to be acceptable. You may have found that your relationships don't feel as satisfying as you hoped they would be. You may, as a result, find yourself with that constant nagging feeling that no matter what, you're somehow too much and not enough all at the same time. As your therapist, I want to get you back in touch with who you are so you can live more authentically into your values, identity, and desires.

I am also passionate about helping men, women, and gender-nonconforming persons cultivate healthy expressions of emotions and behaviors in all facets of their lives. I am also experienced in helping people develop and maintain healthy relationships, whether that’s romantic, familial, or friendship.

I bring a direct, yet compassionate approach to therapy. I am a firm believer in the power of utilizing humor and the importance of framing all goals in the reality of the client. I work best with individuals who focus on a journey of integrity versus a supposed destination of perfection. My ideal clients include individuals who are both new to the world of mental health as well as seasoned veterans who are looking to do some serious digging into their sense of self. These individuals are not looking for a cookie cutter version of happiness, but rather an honest exploration of truth and understanding of their own experience.

My clients often refer to what I call 'blurry trauma,' early attachment experiences that were less than affirming but so ingrained, the client often doesn't recall outstanding events. They may not even remember much about their childhood at all. That kind of trauma leads to addiction, confusing, disorganized or unfulfilling relationships, and difficulty harnessing the resources needed to navigate change so the client can create their most authentic life and relationships. I use present moment, present location resources such as the client's own strengths, passions, and ability to make creative decisions to facilitate safe change.

Are you struggling against an internal voice that says you aren’t good enough or worthy of love and acceptance for who you are? You may have heard this voice from others in your home, school, or on TV growing up, which turned this voice into beliefs that leave parts of you feeling unseen, unheard, and unloved. This is a common story for many people, however, it doesn't reflect the authentic nature of who you are. You are powerful, you are lovable, and you are worthy. In our time together, I will help you reconnect with your true Self by providing a safe, accepting, and judgment-free environment.

Hi, I’m Matt (he/him). I am trained as a Marriage and Family Therapist, which means I think a lot about how relationships shape our experience. This certainly includes relationships with partners, family, and friends, but also our relationships with self and the systems in which we live. Finding balance and harmony in these relationships can be challenging, if not overwhelming. I count it as a joy and privilege to be invited to ally with you in this pursuit.

Many people, especially those in the LGBTQIA+ community, often feel lonely and struggle with depression and anxiety. It's important to know that you don't have to go through this alone. With time, effort, and support, things can get better.

Life stressors and trauma can impact our lives in unexpected ways and reaching out for support takes courage. I value collaborating with individuals to curate space for their healing journey. As a therapist, I am committed to establishing an environment where you can explore your thoughts, emotions, and experiences without judgment. I practice from a trauma informed, relational, and anti-oppressive perspective and believe that each person's journey is unique and deserving of respect. My approach is rooted in an appreciation for the diverse backgrounds and identities that each person brings to the therapeutic relationship.

I tailor my approach to meet the needs of those who come to see me, but offer every individual the respect and compassion they deserve. Maybe you are seeking insight and awareness for the purpose of personal growth. Perhaps you are looking to address a particular issue and need someone who can be goal directed and offer specific skills and feedback. Maybe it's hard to name just what is going on and this is one of the reasons you have decided to seek help. No two people come to therapy for the same reason because no two people are the same.

I believe that some of the most sustainable human growth occurs via relationship. This is why I believe in the power of Psychotherapy: it can be a unique opportunity for healing, a process in which -- through genuine connection and honest feedback, we can begin to make sense of the way we have come to view ourselves, our relationships, our sense of spirituality and interconnection, and the world around us. Through our work together, my clients can begin to gain the tools needed in order to change that which they can control, but also genuinely accept that which they cannot.

Many people come to therapy feeling overwhelmed by anxiety, worry, and insecurity, frustrated with themselves for repeating patterns that get in the way of having meaningful relationships. When you’re feeling stuck and hopeless, it’s especially hard to feel compassion for yourself. One of the beautiful things about therapy is that it is a space where someone else can hold compassion and hope for you until you are able to hold it for yourself.
