Greetings, and welcome! I have been working as a Licensed Professional Counselor since 2005 and consider my role to be nothing less than a sacred trust. For more than 20 years (including my counseling internship), I have been afforded the honor and privilege of sitting down with people and talking about their lives. This affords me the awesome opportunity to provide support, resources, and encouragement – and to learn and grow together.
Though my initial clinical passion was working in the field of addiction, my substance abuse work led me to equally rewarding work with couples addressing a variety of relationship issues. I also enjoy helping clients improve their self-esteem and self-confidence, and better manage their depression and anxiety – and, if need be, identify and address their grief, their losses, and their codependency.
In essence, I believe the primary purpose of counseling is to validate feelings and concerns, to increase response options, and to prompt and promote new insight. I also firmly believe every person and every couple has strengths and challenges, and that identifying, facing, and addressing those challenges leads to the best possible quality of life – and the best possible quality of relationships. And I also firmly believe those who have a genuine, sincere desire to change - and who are also willing to say and do things differently - can and do change. It would truly be my pleasure to walk alongside you and assist you in facilitating change. At the very least, allow me to salute you for finding and harnessing the enormous courage it took to reach out today! Rest assured, my thoughts, prayers, and brotherly love are already with you!

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Henry "Hank" Matthews. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with Regain might be different.
Wonderful marriage counselor, Hank helped us work through several intractable issues in a supportive manner. I would highly recommend working with him!
I struggle to connect with people and Hank has made me feel comfortable from our first meeting. I look forward to my sessions with him and appreciate all the help and insight he has given me. He really has helped change my life
