About Me

Welcome to BetterHelp, and thank you for viewing my profile to see if I may be a good fit for you!

Over my years of experience working as a mental health counselor, I have found that flexibility is the key to a good counseling experience. I will spend time to get to know you and establish a working relationship that will allow me to tailor your experience to what will work to help you reach your short and long term counseling goals. Just as we all deal with stress and turbulent situations differently, your counseling experience will be like no one else’s, and our conversations will move at your preferred pace to ensure you are comfortable and making progress towards a happier you. I truly enjoy helping others and take pride in developing a therapeutic partnership with my clients to work towards positive change.

My experience includes working in a university counseling department as well as serving as the lead clinician in a residential substance abuse program. Through these roles, I have worked with a diverse demographic of people and addressed a variety of counseling issues such as, but not limited to, substance abuse and addiction, depression, anxiety, and bipolar disorder. Whether you are seeking counseling for your relationship or are suffering from anxiety, depression, or addiction, we will work through it together.

I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC) in the state of Florida and hold a Master's Degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. I am also a Certified Master’s Level Addiction Professional (MCAP).

I was so worried after I signed up for this that not only would I not receive help, but that this whole thing was simply too good to be true. Matthew Mateika changed that from the beginning. He has been helpful and insightful. I don't fear that I am getting therapy that is Less Than an office visit. I am relieved and grateful, and I will be a longtime BetterHelp supporter because of Matthew Mateika.

Matthew is very professional and makes me feel comfortable talking to him about even uncomfortable situations. His advice has been very helpful. I was very unsure about better help and who they would pair me with but things are working out and I'm very grateful for my counselor. I hadn't thought I would want to continue this for very long but I may stick with it, I feel the positive impact on my mental health has not only helped me but this has helped me in all aspects of my life.

I’ve only been using BetterHelp for a couple weeks now, and I would say that Matthew Mateika has been very helpful overall. He has a natural way of communicating. He’s very knowledgeable and patient.

Matt listens and gives advice when needed. Sometimes you just need to rant and vent other times you need to hear something from someone and he has the ability to know when he needs to say something and when he doesn’t.

I've only been working with Matt for a short while but I feel he definitely understands me and offers his own personal anecdotes so we actually make a connection. Therapy is about establishing trust and being frank and brutally honest with the person. I have been in therapy for over 15 years and this is the first time I feel I have been completely honest about myself.

Matthew has been a huge blessing in my life! Not only is he well equipped to handle the struggles I have presented him with, he is an avid listener, thoughtful responder and always has some hidden jewel of a lesson in his remarks and feedback. I am SO grateful to have discovered him and BetterHelp.com!

I was super nervous about starting online counseling. But Matthew is relatable and super easy to talk to. He’s good at balancing lighthearted conversations and discussing difficult topics.

Matt is a wonderful counselor. He is active in my day to day life as well as struggles. He makes sure to provide me with information he finds helpful for my situations. Most of all Matt makes me feel heard and understood. As well as cared for. Couldn’t ask for more.
