Staff Intern Therapist

“Our deepest fear is not that we are weak. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.”   -Marianne Williamson

Matthew works primarily with teenagers, adults, couples, and families. Some of his areas of concentration are addiction, anxiety, depression, career development, spiritual issues, men’s issues, and relationship issues.

Matthew approaches counseling from a holistic standpoint incorporating mind, body, and spirit. He uses a narrative approach that helps individuals identify their values and skills while broadening their self-view. Narrative counseling challenges old and unhealthy beliefs that are often the focus of our stories. In this collaborative process, we look at the bigger picture and create new, more complete, and positive beliefs. Matthew also enjoys working with clients in Solution Focus Therapy as well as Cognitive Behavior Therapy.

Matthew completed his undergraduate at the University of North Georgia in Psychology. He is now finishing his graduate degree at Richmont Graduate University in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. Matthew also works with men in recovery at No Longer Bound, a men’s residential treatment center in Cumming.

Matthew spent much of his childhood in Nashville, Tennessee and moved to Georgia for college. When he is not counseling, he enjoys spending time with friends and family and anything sports. He is also active in CrossFit and enjoys movies and reading.

Matthew is under the directed experience and clinical supervision of Alice Hoag, Ed.D., LPC, CPCS
