Matthew Caston, LCPC
Matthew Caston is a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor with several years of experience working with children, adolescents and adults with a wide variety of personal and clinical issues (mood, anxiety, behavioral, life transition, men’s/women’s issues, relationships, trauma, etc.). As a therapist, Matthew strives to meet people “where they’re at.” His overarching goal is to assist clients with recognizing how their current level of motivation impacts their ability to transform their lives. He works tirelessly to help others with developing insight on contributing factors to their presenting issues, then rehearse new skills in sessions that each person can generalize into their lives to create lasting change.
He often turns to Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Emotion-Focused Therapy, Psychodynamic Theory, and Motivational Interviewing to process dynamics of recent difficulties faced by clients. Mindfulness Meditation is another large component Matthew incorporates to assist others in recognizing the importance of living in the present moment. In doing so, he hopes to validate their concerns and help facilitate changes that will guide them in reaching their potential.
Matthew sees great value with any person who is forthcoming about the issues that brings them to counseling. With such a large stigma surrounding seeking professional help to address mental health issues, he believes that it shows a great deal of character to admit when one needs outside help to manage present stressors, as it shows a level of vulnerability that he has grown to respect from past individuals he has previously worked with.
Clients experience him as warm, thoughtful, with a good sense of humor, and an ally in the tough moments. He works with parents, coaches, teachers, students and families to help them get moving in the direction they most need to create the change they seek.
Matt also has special expertise in the following areas:
- Adjustment Disorders
- Eating Disorder
- Health and Wellness
- Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
- School Problems
- Self Harm
- Stress Management
