About Me

Welcome to Teen Counseling! I am Dr. Roxanna Duntley-Matos. I am a community-engaged cultural anthropologist and a Licensed Social Worker in clinical and community organizing practice with over 20 years experience. I collaborate with couples and their families from diverse cultures to strengthen their communication, academic, and interpersonal relationships. I collaborate with English and Spanish-speaking youth to discover their strengths and better address a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, challenges with their parents and school, trauma, grief, and cultural adaptation. I am a former MI Governor appointed Board member of the Children's Trust Fund for the Prevention of Child Abuse and Neglect, former President of Organization of Latino Social Workers-MI and I am currently co-developing a culturally-focused trauma-informed/Empowerment program with the public schools, communities, and families.

My counseling style is warm, engaging, and energizing. I use a cultural humility, empowerment, and transformative complicity approaches that involve respect, sensitivity, and compassion toward the self and others. I am informed by the latest cutting edge research on neuroplasticity, neurodiversity, cultural inclusion, and equity. I don't believe in stigmatizing labels and I respect an intersectional identity and standpoint theory perspective. My approach combines positive psychological, critical feminist, social justice, cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, psycho-dynamic, and rational-emotive counseling. I hope to meet you to support your emotional well-being and spiritual goals. I am honored to walk with you on your journey!

Dr Duntley-Matos has been giving us insightful advice and information. We are strongly healing as a family. Dr Matos is a positive thinker and leaves responsibility with us and she is quick to see what aspects of our relationship need work what aspects are fine and don't need digging up.
We are never afraid to tell her about our questions or doubts.

She’s the best counselor I ever had. If I could recommend her to all people I know, I will. She’s like an ángel from heaven. She works in a way you would see a real change in your lives. Even went those challenges are really something. Her expertise and humanity are uniques. I would always be grateful for having her as my counselor.
