Before beginning work as a therapist, Matthew spent time as a Community Mental Health Worker within Vancouver’s Downtown East-Side. Through this work Matthew learned to connect with people in a variety of contexts, with a range of challenges and problems. Matthew practices an integrated and eclectic approach to counselling: everyone is unique, and everyone needs their own personal approach to the challenges in their lives. Matthew is a firm believer in meeting you where you are, seeing life through your eyes, and collaborating together on how to best move forward and thrive.

With a strong experiential therapeutic base, Matthew is trained in Emotion Focused (EFT), Cognitive Behavioural (CBT), Person Centred, Motivational Interviewing, Mindfulness, Gestalt, and Group Counselling approaches. He has experience with a wide range of challenges including trauma, grief and loss, depression, anxiety, relational difficulties, major life changes, and occupation stress.

Matthew is currently a Counselling Psychology Doctoral Student at the University of British Columbia with a research focus on stress, coping, growth, and protective factors within difficult helping professions.
