About Me

Hello, My name is Matt and I've been in counseling in some form or fashion since 2010. I have been a fully licensed counselor approximately three years. I love what I do and can offer a competent approach that is centered in genuine concern and care for all individuals I encounter. I feel the most important aspect of a therapeutic relationship is trust and connection. A clients trust and transparency is the most valuable thing to me, and I will do everything within my professional power to preserve and maintain it, while remaining within the framework delineated by confidentiality laws. My approach to intervention is mainly Client-centered along with elements of Cognitive Behavior Therapy., Trauma Focused Therapy, Behavior Therapy, and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, I feel it is important for clients to be autonomous and have control over the therapeutic direction. The goal is to provide an absolutely safe, judgement free zone to explore potential areas of growth and healing.

I received my undergraduate and graduate degrees from Jacksonville State University in Jacksonville, AL. I currently practice in Georgia as a Licensed Professional Counselor. I look forward to meeting you!

He really truly cares. A great person who understands when to do intense stuff and when to do casual things. Very much like having a friend who also helps with therapeutic facts and exercises.

Matt is thoughtful, insightful, and all around just a genuine guy. It’s easy to be vulnerable with him. He shows he’s really listening by asking thought provoking questions. He’s really here to help me do the work.

Joseph, who goes by his middle name Matt, is a tremendous counselor. We seemed to connect right away, and in just the first month I'm seeing some real improvement on my end thanks to putting into practice a few of the things that he's recommended to me to help with my issues. I can't recommend him more.

I’ve only been in a couple of sessions with Matt, but he has quickly gained my trust. I feel that I click with him and during our sessions there is a good communication balance. I definitely feel he is compassionate about his work and clients as well.

Mr Whittington, really listens and understand what’s going on with me and don’t judge, for a person like myself who never thought about therapy ,Mr Whittington had shown me it ok to share your feel and not be considered being weak! I’ll forever be great full to Mr Whittington!!

I absolutely love that Matt makes you feel like what you are going through is not invalid. Talking to him for the first time made me feel comfortable enough to share things I have never shared with anyone. He is such a good listener!
