I've just started my sessions with Matthew but I feel like a huge weight is lifted. I spend most of our sessions talking endlessly and realize I have just had so much to say but no safe place to say it. Matthew has already helped me draw connections between occurrences and emotions in my day-to-day life and I really love the path we are on.
