Dr. Dorcas Matowe

(PhD, LMFT)

About Me

I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in the state of Florida with over 15 years experience in mental health. My doctorate degree is in Family Therapy and my master’s degree is in Marital, Couples, and Family Counseling/Therapy. I have worked in for profit and nonprofit organizations with individuals from diverse backgrounds and ages. I provide individual, couples, and family therapy for a variety of concerns such as relationship conflict, family dynamics, multicultural issues, women’s issues, workplace stress, life changes, depression and anxiety, grief and loss, isolation and loneliness, self-esteem challenges. My experience living on two continents allows me to understand life and human behavior from many perspectives. My approach is always systemic, which means I explore how family, relationships, work, culture, and societal factors play a role in each person’s functioning. Depending on the presenting concerns, I incorporate Bowen Family Systems Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy, and Cognitive Behavior Therapy to name a few. I view my position as one to provide support, encouragement and to challenge and from you I welcome openness and thoughtfulness.

Dr. Matowe is so helpful and I’m so glad to have been connected with her. She really listens to me and takes into account not only my past but my current situation and state. This has helped me so much already in developing a plan and a healthy mindset to be my best self. I’m so grateful and look forward to continuing my journey with her.

Written by A.B. on Sep 11, 2020 after counseling with Dorcas for 6 days on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, and anger management

Dr Dorcas is really amazing she listened to me and gave her genuine suggestion opinion. She is a life saver. I want people to know that she might or might not have many reviews or people who counselled with her but she is really an honest and amazing counselor. She gave me clarity and helped me alot.
I'm so happy that we have people like her. I wish her all the best in future. Respect and love.
