Mathew Crawford


About Me

My name is Mat Crawford. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor licensed in Texas, Oklahoma and Missouri. I have a master's degree in counseling from Arizona State University. I have 14 years experience providing counseling services. I have worked with clients in a number of areas. I am most experienced in career counseling and coping with significant life changes. Career counseling includes work/life balance, career/vocational exploration, career transitions, workplace issues (getting along with coworkers, bosses, etc.), and other workplace related stress/anxiety. Significant life changes can cover just about any change in your regular routines and/or support system that is leading to difficulties with grief, a sense of loss, burnout, increased stress, anxiety, or depression. I am a big advocate for self-care and enjoy helping others establish a plan to make self-care part of their regular routines.

While I hesitate to label myself as any sort of faith based counselor because it wasn't something I specifically sought out in my training, the experiences seem to have sought me out. As a result I have an extensive background working with clients on incorporating their faith and spiritual practices into their mental health care. I very much enjoying learning about how people's personal spiritual/religious beliefs and practices impact their lives and helping them reconcile beliefs and behaviors. I am fully open to working with people of any spiritual persuasion but have a particularly strong background working with members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

My style is warm and compassionate. My focus is to understand your unique situation. You are the expert on your life and I'm here to help you find solutions that will work best for you. I am a client-centered therapist and believe in treating others with respect. I enjoying meeting you where you are in life and moving along at a pace with which you are comfortable.

Seeking help to initiate or cope with change in life is a significant step. I am honored each time someone trusts me to open up about their lives and discuss the changes they would like to make. I commit to taking that journey of change with you and giving you a safe place, void of judgement, to try new things, think out loud, and work toward becoming more of the person you want to be.

Mat has been fantastic! He adapted the style and structure of our sessions to just what I needed. He knew when to push and when to give space, when to listen and when to guide and suggest. Excellent perception and interaction that was effective and helpful for me in meeting my goals. Wonderful experience, very grateful for him!

Mat has been very responsive since I came to work with him. He has also been very patient as I try to work through some impasses that are of my own making. I appreciate him very much for this.
