About Me

Hi there! I'm Matthew, your friendly, queer, non-binary, neurodivergent counselor.

I spent much of my early life attempting to fit in and trying to understand how people and society work. As I embraced my gender, sexuality, and neurodivergence, I've been able to understand myself and, from that foundation, how I want to show up in the world. Knowing my values and what aligns with my way of existing has helped me to connect more fully with community and the world at large. I have nearly a decade of experience in various counseling settings which has helped me to refine my approach and what I believe about change and wellness.

My Values and Approach

I believe in the inherent worth and value of every person and because of that I believe in the need to end systems and structures that disadvantage the many to benefit the few. Having a safe and caring relationship to explore alternative perspectives can help you break free from restrictive beliefs and allow you to embrace your true values and your fullest capacity to embrace humanity. Counseling is one of the ways we can reclaim our authenticity and connection to each other.

Balancing Act

In true Libran style, I think about balance and beauty a lot, seeking out possibilities for growth and challenge. My sessions are infused with encouragement, compassion, and a commitment to helping you find equilibrium in your journey towards self-discovery and healing.

Beyond the Counseling Room

When I'm not counseling, you'll find me traveling the world, gaining new perspectives, and refining my relational and personal priorities. I find joy in reading, creating art, immersing myself in nature, and exploring history—activities that keep me dancing through life and growing alongside the people who matter most to me.
