Matt is easy to relate with, can understand you better than you may think he does and doesn't make you feel like you're "in therapy"...that you're chatting with a good friend that happens to be licensed to give out advice and help. He will work with you in whatever format/manner you're comfortable with. He is the first therapist in 30+ years that I've stuck with longer than 3 months.

Matt is awesome. I really appreciate his support and counsel. He really asks me great questions that help me think through the things I'm dealing with in my divorce. I look forward to our sessions each week.

I highly recommend Matt Cox. He is thoughtful and listens thoroughly, with well-timed questions for things to think about moving forward. In a short time with Matt I have been able to better frame some personal struggles that I am going through. I am very grateful for his help.
