Hey, my name is Matt and I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor who has been counseling since 2007. Before, I was in ministry with Campus Crusade For Christ (Cru) for 14 years. I’ve been married for 19 years and my wife and I have two children, who are twins. We have lived in Florida two times, currently since 2001.
I have worked with a lot of different clients with a wide range of backgrounds and challenges in their lives. Counseling is an amazing thing. It seems from the outside like it is “just talking” – but based on its effects it is so much more. I desire to be a bridge builder: between those who don’t get counseling and the wonderful transformations it can achieve in one’s life, between those who are on the outside looking in at emotional health and the blessings of God, between secular psychology and Christian principles, and between emotional health and spiritual health.
My vision is to see people discover their best selves and see them equipped to make the changes in their lives that will bring them freedom, purpose, clarity of mind and heart, and emotionally healthy relationships. I believe that we were designed to be overcomers, but that we are relational beings who become free and healthy through safe relationships. Counseling provides that safe relationship, while equipping folks to develop healthy relationships more fully in their lives.
I write on topics of emotional health and healthy emotional management, relationships, parenting, and Christian spirituality.
