Counseling Approach

I balance compassionate listening with direct questions and sharing my insights. I take time to really know you and provide personalized care. I patiently walk you through the process of healing deep hurts. I assign homework as appropriate to facilitate growth and healing. I have experienced with my clients that healing often happens when we dig into the root causes of your concerns and bring attention to what hurts while focusing on God. True healing involves experiencing truth and grace through a relationship with Jesus.

How Others View Matt

The following comments contain others' perspectives on Matt's role as a counselor. Because each person's struggles are unique, each person will respond to counseling differently. In addition to a counselor's skills, many other factors (such as a client's availability, investment, motivation, attitude, and ability to face difficult emotions) can determine the results of counseling. While Matt practices with evidence-based methods, the outcomes of counseling cannot be determined ahead of time. He might interact with you in completely different ways (than those depicted below) to help you reach your goals.

Matt is not able to help all people. Sometimes there is not a good fit between what people need and what Matt is able to provide. The comments below do not necessarily represent the specific outcome you will realize. They are only meant to help you get a better feel for Matt's personality and approach to counseling. They have been edited for readability. While Matt cannot guarantee any specific outcome, he will work with you to achieve the best results possible.
