Hi everyone! I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor with over eight years experience working as a clinician in a variety of settings with an even larger variety of clients.
My areas of focus are pretty wide, but I am particularly drawn to LGBTQ issues, depression, and anxiety.
My clinical approach is one of compassion and patience and I try to build a space that is accepting and open. I consider the client-therapist relationship a valuable one in meeting life’s daily challenges. Especially in our current climate, support and connection from and with others is crucial.
I have been fortunate enough to work with a great number of teenagers in my professional career and even luckier to have learned so much from them. It was through working with so many folks younger than myself that I started to learn how to appreciate intergenerational learning. Younger people have added so much to my clinical progressions and it's been a joy for me to help explore with them the frequently turbulent era that comes with being a teenager.
My general theoretical approach combines CBT with elements of mindfulness, DBT, and LGBT-affirmative therapy. Additionally I can edit and alter any treatment planning to suit individual needs and expectations of therapy.
We are living in an uncertain and often distressing time. You do not need to do this alone. Whether it’s with me or others, there is an abundance of people wanting to help and support each other.
PLEASE NOTE: At this current time, I am only conducting LiveChat sessions. If communicating over text/LiveChat is something that appeals to you, please do not hesitate to hit the button to work with me.
I look forward to meeting with you!

Matthew was great. My teen is doing in person instead.
Matthew has already been such a great support for me during a time where there's a lot of change and new things happening in my life. The calmness I feel after every session is amazing and I can only encourage you to work with him.
Matthew has been great, and I really appreciate his thoughtful, caring ways.
He asks questions and is curious about how and why I feel the way I do, and what's important to me, and he empathizes well and has seriously helped my confidence with discovering who I am and who I want to be.
