Great to meet you!

Hey there! My name is Matt and I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC). I received my Bachelor's Degree from the University of North Florida and my Master of Education degree from Florida Atlantic University. I have 10 years of experience in the field with a wide range of treatment experiences. I received EMDR training in 2020 with a focus on Somatic and Attachment healing from trauma.

A bit about my approach to therapy

I tend to blend several approaches together under a basic Humanist principle to treat you as an individual and that your learning and healing process is unique. I employ a trauma-informed approach that you have learned certain skills for a reason. Our goals will be to make sense of your issues once we put all the pieces together. I am to work alongside you as an ally in your healing process, align with your needs, challenge you towards growth, and support your independence and openness.

What you can expect from our first session

I hope to offer you some relief as soon as possible. You may notice me asking a lot of questions aimed at getting to the bottom of the issue so that I can best understand what is happening and give you the best suggestions so that you can be empowered to find your own path forward. I look forward to working with you as a guide and collaborative support.
