Though I have had only two sessions with Matthew, both have been very positive experiences. He offers useful feedback and is very thoughtful with his suggestions and talking points.

He's been great so far. I have a lot of issues but I'm hopeful that we will work well together.

I have had a number of therapists throughout my life and this is the first time I feel like I am actually tackling the things I need to. Matthew is fantastic.
