Greetings, I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with over 20 years of experience working with clients in private practice setting and university/college settings. My first area of expertise is in the area of Career Indecision, Career Anxiety, Women returning to the workforce after divorce or loss, Career Transitions, Layoffs and Underemployment concerns. Some clients are dealing with toxic work environments and need guidance to navigate out of this situation. Sometimes it is hard to figure out the most pressing issues and having an objective counseling professional help you during these times can be very reassuring.

Hi there, I'm Matt. I work with adults across Texas using individual psychotherapy and I also offer group counseling. In person counseling is offered in Houston.

I keep getting interviews but I’m not getting the job. I’m not sure what I’m doing wrong. When I ask for feedback, I don’t get much of an answer. I need someone who can tell me how I’m coming across in the interview because I’ve gotten jobs in the past that weren’t a great fit. I also need to be more clear about what I want in a job. Instead of helping the employer understand what I motivates me and what I enjoy doing, I try to guess the type of employee they are seeking so that I will get the job. This may explain the reason I haven’t been very happy in my past roles.

Are you unhappy about where you are in life and fear others won't accept you for who you are? Do you feel as though you have to hide facets of yourself? Do you feel stuck and want to change? If so, you may find it helpful to connect with someone who has been through these feelings and understands the challenge in managing feelings of anxiety, stress, isolation, insecurity, and even depression. I understand the struggles with exploring one's identity and finding the confidence to love and value your unique self.

I use several different approaches such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy techniques, Narrative Therapy techniques, Solution Focused Brief Therapy techniques, as well as career counseling when needed.
Everyone needs someone in their life to help validate their feelings and experiences. We have a tendency to focus more on our physical body than of our thoughts. Sometimes we may feel depressed or anxious without knowing the reason. Sometimes everything can be perfect in your life yet you still feel this sadness. This is not uncommon and talking to a therapist can help. I use a holistic approach when working with my clients. I provide a safe space with acceptance of who you are. I help my clients create goals for themselves and then we work on accomplishing them together.

When you're operating from a place of meaning and purpose, the things you want most in life tend to start showing up, whether it's money, the right relationship, a great job.
Maybe you're wondering "Is this all there is?" Or perhaps you're feeling like you're living a version of groundhog day over and over and over and over again. No problem. My coaching practice is focused on helping my clients get unstuck and find meaning and purpose in their lives. After a few sessions, you become more mindful of the thoughts you're thinking and the choices you're making that you are keeping you from getting what you really want.
