About Me

I am licensed professional counselor in Pennsylvania, and working toward licensure in VA, with over 9 years of experience. I have worked with a number of adult clients regarding problems in the workplace, communication issues, family-related trauma, marital and relationship concerns and addiction problems.

My counseling style is warm, interactive, client-focused and delivered with a little humor here and there, when appropriate. My approach is a combination of humanistic, person-centered and strengths-based counseling. Our conversations are a collaboration, and I will work with you to help you address the concerns that weigh you down, and take your experiences and abilities to help build you up.

No, it's not easy to tackle the hard things that have happened in your life. But, if you're interested in taking your first step forward, I want to walk with you and help you become even stronger.

I look forward to working with you!

Written by J.A. on Nov 17, 2021 after therapy with Matthew for 1 month on issues concerning relationship

Me and my wife were not in a good place mentally, physically and spiritually. We wanted to connect with someone who might listen to our concerns and give us constructive feedback in the way that strengthens our marriage and that’s what Matt has been for us. He has helped us in ways our prior therapists have not. He is both lighthearted and funny but also takes our issues and concerns seriously. He challenges us and gives us ways to better connect with each other. I highly recommend him to anyone!

Matt is very attentive and astute. He puts things in a way that's easily digestible and often points out things that we hadn't noticed or hadn't thought about. He has been very helpful in allowing husband and I to look at our issues in a new way and come to a better understanding.
