About Me

Greeting:) My name is Matthew Holt and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over 13 years of experience working with youth in various capacities. After obtaining my Master's degree in Social Welfare from the University of California, Berkeley, I worked in the Oakland Public School system as a Mental Health Counselor, providing therapy and group therapy to young folks and obtained my clinical license. I continue to provide mental health services to youth, ages 11-24, through my position as a Licensed Clinician and Senior Clinical Case Manager with Alameda County.

When working with youth, I remain client centered and strengths based within the context of my Solution Focused modality. I always honor our youth as the expert in their experience and believe firmly in engaging their caretakers when ideal/needed. My passion for working with youth comes from their power, their potential, and their resilience. I look forward to providing your young person with expert care and support as they navigate their life.
