At Mathews Counseling, we believe in you, your teen, and your family. We know the teenage years can be hard. You can feel the disruption throughout your family and throughout your life. At times they may seem like a totally different person from the sweet kid you raised. While they are hard, the teenage years do not have to drive disconnection between you and your teen. Whether they are facing anxiety and depression, struggles at school, or an autism diagnosis, we believe the teenage years can be the best years. And we are here to help.

With over 20 years spent working with teenagers from all kinds of backgrounds, we know how hard it can be to get them to open up and share. That’s why we spend time creating a safe environment where they feel respected and heard, while finding creative ways to engage them throughout the process.

We work alongside you and your teenager to understand where you want to be and collaboratively find ways to get there. Along the way, we check in with you to make sure you are seeing the progress you both want to see.

We believe therapy should be designed around who your teen is, their goals, and the goals of your family. We believe in and utilize the strengths they have. Others believe in “one size fits all” therapy. We believe therapy should be crafted and tailored to suit your teen’s unique strengths and personality. More than just talking about problems, we offer practical solutions to help get everyone moving.

We offer a risk-free initial session to help determine which of our highly trained teen therapists is the best fit for you and your child. If you are not 100% satisfied after the initial session, you pay nothing. We want to ensure the best fit even if it means helping you find a therapist outside of our practice.

Once we ensure a good fit, your therapist will then work with you to craft a tailored treatment plan for your teen, clearly laying out the path forward. Every session moves you one step closer to healing and wholeness, all with deeply connected family.

They say that adolescence is the foundation for adulthood. We help you make sure that foundation is rock solid.

  • Therapy was terrifying at first. But not feeling judged was extremely helpful. Previous therapists felt rather remote and disconnected. Here, I got some input into practical steps I can take to change my perspective. That is critically important. I feel calmer. More at peace. I still struggle, but I can recognize that for what it is.

  • I guess around the third or fourth session when I actually started opening up about things I’ve never told anybody even previous therapists was when I realized that this counseling was working.  Also, my therapist regularly asks me questions that have shaken my worldview and cause me to leave re-thinking so much about myself and how I have worth.

  • I loved my experience at Mathews Counseling.

  • I was hesitant at first because there is such a stigma about mental health and going to a therapist. Once I began sessions with my therapist at Mathews Counseling, however, that feeling quickly went away.

  • It feels great to have someone to listen, to hash things out with and to give feedback or be a sounding board on where I was and where I was headed. I'm as whole and authentic as I've ever been in life.

  • You guys are awesome. I shopped around for therapy for some time and I am SO GLAD I ended up with y'all even though you aren't the closest. Your practice is great. Please keep the free coffee. I will leave if you do not have free coffee.

  • I spent the majority of my life living with severe depression and anxiety. I have a history of abuse and that has always made me feel shame and guilt and a lot of sadness. Over the course of the many months and meetings, it got easier to talk about those topics and I felt like a lot of the progress has been to let go of much of that.

  • The ability to be vulnerable with another person was huge, and unpacking years worth of junk in my life was beyond tough some days. But I’m slowly beginning to see the changes, or rather transformation, in my outlook on life. Which was rather bleak before.

  • A difference that I felt was my child has a phenomenal therapist that looks like them with no judgment as I share our experiences and look for assistance and strategies of coping.
