More about me

Licensing: MS, LMFT
Years in Practice: 13

I received my BS from Virginia Tech in Human Development, minoring in psychology, and I received my MS from the University of Kentucky in Family Studies, with emphasis in Marriage and Family Therapy. I have 13 years of clinical experience. For the first part of my career, I worked for 6 years in a residential program for boys with severe behavioral and emotional problems. After this, I moved onto a prominent practice for 5 years working with individuals, couples, families, children, and adults. My treatment approach is to form a comfortable relationship with a client first and foremost. Seeking therapy is a big step to take and I want my clients to feel as comfortable as possible with me, feel free to disagree with me, or talk about anything that I've said that bothers them. I like to apply CBT approaches while also emphasizing compassion and support. I am also big on providing education and information to my clients about resources and mental health.

I love to work with people who have anxiety, bipolar disorder, general stress, as well as family, relational, and parenting issues. I also appreciate working on significant life transitions like moves, broadening a social circle, getting a new job, and breaks-ups/separations/divorces. Boundaries are often a part of my work, identifying and setting healthier boundaries with friends, family, coworkers, and in romantic relationship. These are some areas I enjoy focusing on clinically, but I also have a lot of experience working with clients who have oppositional defiant disorder, depression, adjustment disorders, autism, and LGBTQ issues.

About online counseling

Online counseling allows you to receive care from an online mental health practitioner via phone, video chat, or instant messaging. It is convenient for those who may have trouble getting to or would prefer not to have in-person therapy appointments. Ranging from $35 to $80 per week, online counseling is generally more affordable than in-person counseling. A study by researchers at University of California, Berkeley found that online counseling can be just as effective as face-to-face therapy while being more convenient, affordable, and accessible.

We had a bad experience with our first counselor we were matched with but Matthew swooped in to save our Betterhelp experience. He has been amazing!

Matt is a great therapist! He has given me very good goals to work on throughout my sessions. He always gives me encouragement and is respectful of the decisions that I make. He allows me to use my critical thinking skills when thinking of how to solve problems. I appreciate his support that he has given me thus far.
