I have been doing counseling for over 35 years. When I lived in Pennsylvania, I worked as a school counselor in a high school for 25 years and also maintained a private practice. Since moving to Florida, I work in a private practice in which I specialize in both adolescents and adults. I also work with families and couples. I worked at Better Help before and formed many successful relationships with clients. I consider myself to be an eclectic counselor who is genuine, supportive, and empathetic. I have been in therapy many times and definitely understand how helpful it can be to have someone who is in your corner, advocating and believing solely in you. I consider myself liberal and non-judgmental and I would be surprised if there was something you could tell me that I have not heard before, I also have a strong sense of humor and know that humor has saved me many times from my own issues. I received my Master's degree in 1980 in Marriage, family, and Child Counseling, but I consider that my life experience just as important in having added to my counseling skills. Many counselors can learn from books, but I incorporate all I have learned in my own life experience into the work I do with clients. Let's talk.
- Stress, Anxiety
- Relationship issues
- Family conflicts
- Parenting issues
I also have experience in Addictions, LGBT, Trauma and abuse, Grief, Intimacy-related issues, Eating disorders, Sleeping disorders, Anger management, Self esteem, Career difficulties, Bipolar disorder, Depression

I’ve always been scared of counseling and avoided it for many years but this platform made it easier and Amy is brilliant and settled me in very quickly by asking all the right questions. She checks up on me too if I’ve been quiet for a couple of days. Such a relief to feel like someone cares.
Amy always listens to me and makes suggestions that I would never have thought about. She has knowledge about multiple fields. If I don't respond for a couple of days then she contacts me to check in and is very understanding of all my concerns. I often feel like I'm not heard but Amy makes sure that I feel heard and understood. She understands my aversion to medication and she has to provided me the information about medications as well as other options without pushing me. I have recommended her to my co-worker who struggles with similar issues to mine and she already loves Amy based on my sessions that I've allowed her to listen to. Thank you Amy
She is great! Non judgemental and open minded. I would recommend her to anyone who needs help
For some time now Amy has been there for me. I haven't always been the best at answering and keeping up but when I need her she is always there.
Amy has been very supportive in all of my personal matters and has become like family. I highly recommend her.
Amy has been quite helpful. She takes the time to listen to what I have to say and she gives wonderful advice. She's also very easy to talk to, which is a relief.
Amy is a wonderful counselor. She listens to what I have to say, and all my concerns. She gives great advice, and excellent ways to help my depression. I had left BetterHelp for financial reasons, but when I returned, I asked for Amy personally.
Amy Matthews is a great counselor. She's been very helpful in the time I've had her as my therapist, and she's very persistent about staying in touch with her clients. I would recommend her to anyone!
I think she is great
She's amazing, loving, kind, and full of so much wisdom. I'm just lucky enough to benefit from it.
Amy has been there every step of the way. I was in a very bad relationship and she helped me navigate through it. I don’t know where I would be without her help.
I didn’t know how to start to make a difference in my life and tried BetterHelp; Amy Mathews has been very helpful on this difficult episode in my life very supportive, as well as the site group webinars.
Amy is very understanding and a great listener and is able to communicate clearly. She is extremely helpful with any issues I have.
Amy has been there for me every step of the way through a journey of a bad relationship. I honestly do not know what I would have done had I not found BetterHelp.
In a very short time, Amy Matthews helped me and gave me some tools to work in my anxiety. I'm very pleased I chose her as counselor.
Amy is by far the most knowledgeable therapist I’ve ever had. She is very empathetic which is amazing because I feel like she understands my perspective. She also does an amazing job implementing new exercises & verbiage to use to be more efficient in life. I definitely would recommend her to anyone.
My counselor works with me and helps me see things a bit differently. I really love her - first time ever having a counselor, but she’s amazing.
She is wonderful, so kind and so thoughtful. Thank you Better Help. I feel lucky to know Amy Matthews - please tell her this from me.
Amy was a true gem! She helped me realize many things about myself and what I know now to be a family history and a genetic component to what I have going on. My mindful and soul searching journey back to myself and my husband could not have happened without her. Do yourself a favor and talk and listen to her. Thank you again so very much!! I’ll never be able to repay you for what you have given me.
Amy is helping me work through a bunch of trauma that I have been through in the past few years that I have tried to deal with myself. And I am finding out I can't do this alone! I am so glad I found BetterHelp and they matched me with her!
She is very kind and understands I also have trouble with my special needs.
Amy helped me immensely with managing my anxiety and anxious thought patterns. She helped me learn coping mechanisms and put a lot of things into a manageable perspective. After a few weeks of her kind, courteous, and prompt replies, I'm feeling better than I have in months. Thank you, Amy!
I have not been with Amy very long but in the short time she has helped me tremendously. She responds quickly and is truly amazing at what she does.
It's been really nice to have someone listen when it's so difficult to let my feelings out. I like the way Amy is guiding me and feel I've made progress in such a short time and can't wait for the adventure to continue. I always look forward to her messages -- knowing they will lift me up.
Amy has been available and accessible to me during a busy, confusing time in my life. She’s a great listener, checks in on me regularly, and makes time to spend working with me on the things I need to talk about.
