About me

Hello there! I am Matt Rask and I am a licensed therapist in both North Dakota and Minnesota with 4 years of professional work experience. I have experience in helping clients with stress and anxiety, coping with grief and loss, motivation, low self-esteem, depression, life stressors and transitions, relationship concerns, implementing healthy habits, developing coping skills and many other areas. I am a therapist who uses an "integrated" approach where I use strategies and interventions from several different areas and focus appropriate interventions to my client's needs. Predominately, my approaches comes from cognitive behavioral therapy, solution-focused therapy, person-centered approaches and strengths-based approaches. I use many different approaches as every person and their needs are different.

I work with my clients to create an open and safe environment where thoughts and feelings can be shared without fear of judgment. One of my favorite aspects of being a therapist is building a strong therapeutic relationship and rapport with my clients. Taking the first step to sign up for therapy can take courage and I am proud of you for getting started! Please let me know if there is anything I can do to make your experience in therapy smoother or more comfortable.

On a personal note, I am a huge sports fan and I enjoy being outdoors, summer time, spending time with friends and family and traveling. I am pretty easy going and like to go with the flow. I usually am pretty up for doing anything. I like to be open so my client can get to know me and please feel free to ask any questions if you want to get to know me more.

I look forward to working with you!

I really enjoy Matt! He hears me, validates my feelings accordingly, and then brings new and old tools to help tend to my “mental garden”. He is very helpful, and always has an applicable mindful exercise/perspective to help calm down whatever big feelings I may be having.
