Matthew is a compassionate Therapist. During our first session, I felt at ease and felt heard and seen. Matthew is a thoughtful listener and yet won't be hesitant to interrupt and ask a poignant question. I have appreciated Matthew's suggestions for reading or exercises to assist me in my "practice" to a better me.
