About me

My name is Matthew Johnson III, LCSW BACS. I have been a social worker for 24 years. I've been an LCSW for 20 year. My experiences are in addictions and bereavement, which help me to work with anxiety, depression, PTSD, Trauma, and family issues. My approach is a client centered approach, and I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy along with a process oriented clinical environment to allow you to feel comfortable expressing your feelings, having your thoughts and feelings validated and then getting constructive feedback, by working collaboratively with you to help you resolve your current struggles. Our sessions will also help you to grow emotionally by learning to process your negative feelings appropriately, learn better coping strategies to help you thrive and most importantly to help you in your the process of transformation. This is becoming the person that you want to be. I have experience working with individuals, couples and families. As you learn to change how you think, feel and act, you will change yourself and hence change your world for the better. I look forward to working with you to help accomplish your life goals.

He makes me feel like he’s actually relating to what Im expressing. That makes it much more easier to open to him. He’s most definitely not biased. He's attentive to both me and my wife’s concerns and gives great advice!

Matt takes the time to listen and offer suggestions and support without making me feel like he’s judging or pointing fingers. He gives us some very eye opening concepts to consider and always has feedback for us to work on between sessions. I would highly recommend his services to anyone looking for help.

I have had many experiences with different counselors over the years and Matt has completely blown all of the others out of the water… My husband and I were at a fragile point in our marriage when we decided to pursue counseling and Matt has been a Godsend!
We wanted someone impartial, relatable, knowledgeable & personable…. Someone who understood where each of us were coming from and also helped us “decode” our communication - which could have destroyed our marriage. Matt may never know exactly how big of an impact he’s had, but our family is forever changed for the positive- we even communicate better with others because of his insight… Thanks Matt - for being at the right place at just the right time…

Matthew is empathetic, down to earth and very responsive. During marriage counseling, he is equitable and calls it like he sees or hears it. Couples must be open and receptive to his guidance. He also provides realistic solutions/ideas to help strengthen a marriage.
