Matthew Ryan

LPC

I operate from a person-centered approach, which emphasizes being genuine, providing unconditional positive regard, and emphatic understanding in the efforts to foster our therapeutic connection to enhance this emotional and powerful relationship.

Therapy is not surgery; you don’t go to sleep and wake up with all of your problems solved. The sweat and strain and heavy lifting are mostly yours. But with this, however, you can feel more satisfied with therapy when actively involved in the sessions. It is my role to work with your motivation and continue to foster this growth towards positive change. I operate from a person-centered approach, which emphasizes being genuine, providing unconditional positive regard, and emphatic understanding in the efforts to foster our therapeutic connection to enhance this emotional and powerful relationship.
Interests in systemic-based therapy models, solution-focused therapy, family and relationship counseling, adolescent and young adult issues, assessment and treatment of co-occurring disorders, dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), and positive psychology.

An area that I have been incorporating more into my practice is guided imagery, which research has shown to give a person a greater sense of control, increased self confidence, assistance with fear, panic, anxiety, helplessness, trauma, loss, and grief, and a decrease in depression, stress, and pain.

Understanding our relational  approach can give you a sense of how psychotherapy can help. Unlike counseling and other types of therapy, it takes a perspective that’s both deeper and broader. By focusing on emotions, it seeks to discover hidden pieces of who you are and then to understand how those pieces fit together.
