I am a Marriage and Family Therapist who specializes in working with individuals, pre-teens, adolescents, couples, and families. I have experience providing supportive therapeutic services treating a wide range of emotional and behavioral issues. I use a systematic treatment approach, I believe that in order to treat the individual, it is important to look at their life in the context of their family, work, school and relationships. I understand that each person and family is unique and requires a customized treatment modality. My strengths are in forming meaningful relationships with my clients from diverse cultural backgrounds. The therapeutic relationship and its influence in creating positive change through providing a non-judgmental and safe environment is a core therapeutic value. I am prepared to work with you towards recognizing strengths, identifying healthy ways of coping, and heightening your self-awareness so you can lead a more productive life.

Drastic shifts are sometimes necessary to make room for what truly brings us happiness. These transitions may provoke anxiety, but they also prompt us to question, evolve, and finally become who we were meant to be. I am here to assist you in your journey of self-discovery, healing, and empowerment.
My approach is grounded in Psychodynamic and Relational Theory. We work together to understand your emotions, early-life experiences, and beliefs to gain insight into your present-day issues, unhealthy patterns, and your path ahead.
I specialize in accompanying my patients through major life transitions:
Discontent with the people and activities that once provided enjoyment
Self-questioning about who you are or where your life is going
Changes in family dynamics
Affairs and other relationship challenges
Loss and grief

Are you reasonably successful yet know you have the potential to be so much more?
Do you want your relationships to bring you more satisfaction and your career more success?
Do you want to work hard but have time to play too?
For 33 years, I have been helping people overcome life challenges. As an NAAP-certified psychoanalyst, I am comfortable working with individuals from diverse backgrounds and with a wide range of presenting problems. I invite you to contact me if you’d like to move your life forward to the one you deserve. I treat all individuals with respect and use humor and warmth to help facilitate the therapeutic relationship.

“With the realization of one’s own potential an self-confidence in one’s ability, one can build a better world.” -Dalai Lama
There are moments in life where we feel “stuck” or find ourselves at an impasse within ourselves, or, with others. It can feel overwhelming, and it can often make us feel vulnerable. These experiences or traumas often present challenges and new feelings tend to surface that leave us unsure of how to navigate through these emotional times. My hope is to provide an outlet for expression in a safe and supportive environment.
I use a psychodynamic and humanistic approach to deeply understand each person’s unique personality and not just their symptoms. I then formulate an individualized plan that will provide a framework to help guide the individual through their issues and experiences. I do not use a theoretical boilerplate.
I enjoy working with couples, families, children and adults, and the LGBTQ community. In the past my experience as a dog trainer has helped me deepen my understanding, along with the more implicit levels of communication. Some of my best supervision has come from dogs.
Dr. Jeanne MatthewsM.A, M.Ed, PsyD
It’s been a pleasure to serve others for the past 10 years in watching them heal, grow, and overcome life’s obstacles. I see children, adolescents, adults, and couples in a safe, confidential and non-judgmental environment. I work with individuals, groups, and families working through trauma, depression, anxiety, and relationship issues. In addition, I often see children suffering from low self-esteem, victims of abuse, ADHD, and other behavioral issues. I also consult/advocate for children who have an IEP/504 plan. I can offer a holistic approach working with both individuals and sometimes their significant other/family member or parent to provide the best outcome. Life can be stressful. Don’t wait to get help. Please contact me for an appointment to get on the path of becoming the best version of you.

Making changes in our life begins by recognizing that changes need to occur and ones old ways of coping are no longer effective. Working with the right therapist can help you learn and apply new and adaptive coping skills to identify and maintain a life worth living. We can look at these past and present behaviors and work towards understanding where they come from. I create a therapeutic environment that is safe, nonjudgmental, and supportive. For over 20 years, I’ve specialized in working with individuals struggling with substance abuse, eating disorder, relationship challenges, depression, and anxiety.
